South Street Kitchen in Gillingham (Dorset) has had plenty of reviews in the short time it has been open in the former rugby club. Probably most notable one in the Guardian in February 2015. We have visited few times ourselves and have always had great time and fabulous food.
We had a rare opportunity to have lunch last Friday to finish another busy week before collecting the children from school. Usual discussion followed where should we go? I went through usual favourites and then thought about trying South Street Kitchen for lunch.
I must say it’s evening type of restaurant for me. Only because of it’s dark interior and lack of windows. It feels rather strange eating at lunch time and then walking out into the daylight again like that feeling of coming out of dark cinema in the day time. Although it looked a bit cloudy I thought we could sit in the garden.
There are plenty of tables outside, a couple of tables also under cover where we did end up moving once it started drizzling. It was quiet for Friday lunch time, there were only few other people in.
South Street Kitchen menu is simple and yet it’s hard to choose from many favourites. I tried Veg & Cheese Empanada’s and my husband chose Philly Sub.
Service was okay, our food arrived before we were given cutlery so we had to wait for those while the food sat on the table. My empanada’s were delicious and husband’s sub very filling. We had just coffees after the meal. It was quiet and relaxing Friday lunch and I think on a sunny day the garden probably fills up quickly as it’s quiet and completely enclosed.
