Trip Advisor flagged this place up for me. Their web-site looked good so I decided to visit last Friday. I knew they close for a couple of hours in the afternoon so I planned the day carefully. I even knew what I wanted to order...More

A first class restaurant with a first class chef (Dorchester trained, I believe). A fairly short menu, but always a variety of specials, changing from day to day. The presentation is a touch nouvelle cuisine, but it is always a satisfying meal. What astounded me,...More

A surprising find in this western end of Enfield, near Enfield Chase Station. Hard to describe cuisine but it is a mux of classic simple French Brasserie with a mix of mediterranean cooking and UK influenced style. The prices are not low but not excessive...More

James Greer (chef/proprietor) started his career at Killybegs catering college in County Donegal which enabled him to enter some of Europe’s most prestigious kitchens. To mention a few; Robert Carriers, Hilton Park Lane, London’s Governor House, Hilton Zurich and the Black Forest’s Gasthof Zum Lowen.

Whilst working as Head Chef at the Royal Lancaster Hotel that he met his wife Moira, who was positioned in the banqueting department alongside acclaimed caterer Faye Schneider.

In 1998 they achieved their dream of opening their own restaurant, the Beautiful South.

“Over the last 15 years I have developed and adapted the menus to show off my passion for cooking and would now describe the food as modern French with a British influence.

I prefer to use seasonal produce in the dishes and menus that I create. I select local suppliers whenever possible, allowing me to get the freshest products ingredients delivered daily.

We create and cook all our dishes in the restaurant which also includes a fantastic selection of desserts. We also have experience of banqueting in major London hotels and are able to cater and offer help with organising any special events such as Conferences, Weddings, Christenings, Birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs etc.”
