Went here for a friends birthday, the place was nice and comply. Staff was polite and friendly.
The Tommyfield is on fire at the moment. The last two meals i've had have been exactly what i envisioned when i ordered them. However, the pies are served with either mash, chips, or greens. I chose chips. Unfortunately a pie with chips and no portion of greens clearly looks like an incomplete meal, and considering my girlfriend had a MASSIVE half a roast chicken with all the trimmings for a very similar price, it seems odd that the chef hasn't looked at the dish and noticed also that a pie and chips alone is one portion of greens short of a complete meal.
That said, this place is definitely worth going to. We have been twice recently and we will be going again soon.
Mother's Day rugby!
My fiancee and I took my parents to the Tommyfield for Mother's Day and it handily coincided with the England v Italy rugby match, so dad was happy too! The food was delicious and very good portion sizes. The men had a sunday roast and mum and I had the grilled Hake. Dessert was a naughty addition.... the banoffee pie was delicious but beat me in the portion size! No complaints from anyone and the service was attentive but not over-bearing. Highly recommend this place for good food, service and ambience.
The Best Steak and Pies
The Tommyfield reall has the best steak and pies in London, and the starters are amazing too!
Bring back the Chicken liver pate!!
Great service and amazing
Great service and amazing food as usual at the Tommyfield!
GODD FOOD, GOOD SRVICE
Went to Tommyfield in Kennington with a friend. Food was great and so was the service and their house white wine was lovely, good atmosphere aswell. Have been there before and was not disappointed this time. Would definitely go back again.
Good pub in Kennington
I came to The Tommyfield for a catch-up with a friend and we were sat by friendly attantive staff at a nice table with a great view of Kennington's streetlife wandering past. We both had the fish and chips which was good and shared a lovely sticky toffee pudding. The wine was good and reasonably priced.
All in all for a nice, reasonable value informal dinner in good surroundings I'd recommend The Tommyfield.
Lively and comfortable gastro-pub
Fits my vision of traditional Brit pub...old, rustic wooden floors, chairs,tables...limited but excellent ales & lagers on tap...menu of spring bok (thats a S African Gazelle), Kangaroo, & Venison meat pies, fish and chips, other pasta, meat & veg dishes...fun and interesting adventure for omnivores and tolerant vegetarians. Kangaroo less gamey than venison, closer to beef...no Spring Bok tonight...haddock hot & flaky, served with side of very pedestrian chips (fries). Service was great, the buzz as the pub filled with thank god its Friday-ites full of humor and good cheer. Kind of place I would like to go for comfort and warmth on a cold and rainy night or to celebrate a good friend's promotion or departure or other event of good fortune.
Food: Really delicious and
Food: Really delicious and huge pies (I recommend the Venison!), although It would have been nice if it had been served with potatoes AND veg as opposed to either/or.
Service: Maybe a little overfriendly, but generally speaking our waitress was very accommodating and courteous, recommended wines to us and did not get annoyed when we took ages to order.
Ambiance: Really nice feel to the place, and the decor was just up my street. It did seem like the staff couldn't decide what type of music to play, and cut off a couple of songs midway through, but it didn't distract us too much.
Value: Great value - four of us ate a main course and consumed two bottles of wine for £25 per head inc tip.
If you are ever in the Kennington/O
If you are ever in the Kennington/Oval area definitely head to the Tommyfield
for a good meal. The little pots of gravy that accompanied our dishes made
everything just right. A hidden gem.
I went here for a Sunday roast and was very pleased with what I got. I had the beef which was flavorsome, tender and not fatty. I think this is the first roast I've had where I didn't need to add salt, everything was just right down to the veg and the yorkshire pudding. Even though the football was on when I went there and it was quite busy, the crowd was not at all boisterous and I was able to enjoy my meal in a decent atmosphere as I have no interest in football.
The staff were friendly and attentive and I will definitely be going here again.
Nice place, good food and great service, I strongly recommend to book before to go there as the place is very busy for dinner.
