Light on the Common
Really delicious food - everything was great. The staff were lovely too.
Great food and brilliant value for money when it is freshly sourced. Very safe and sanitised.
Good atmosphere and menu. Food was very salty though.
Average food. We were in the conservatory and it as cold as the front door was left open (apparently due to Covid).
Service was slow and inattentive.
Lovely food but very very noisy as no soft furnishings to absorb it.
Waitress was very attentive. Food was lovely. Thank you.
Staff are very friendly & the service was great. Food was served in good time and the burgers were excellent.
We had a lovely evening in a quiet corner of the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food delicious.
Good food, an excellent table in the window with views of the Sunday market, very good service, a thoroughly enjoyable lunch.
Love this restaurant and normally have nothing but praise for it. But unfortunately the service was really slow for my lunchtime visit. There seemed to be plenty of staff and the restaurant didn't seem overly busy but it felt they just kept forgetting about us! Food was excellent and great value. Will still continue to go there since normally everything is fantastic.
A pleasant place in a good location.
The food was good and the portion size well judged.
I fall to understand why we use it so seldom.
Poor service. Staff rushed off their feet and not Covid compliant.
We went for 21:00 dinner on a Saturday. Enjoyed the food immensely and service was efficient and good.
Pretty poor. The service was mediocre and the food was very (below) average. I has the rare breed burger, which was over cooked and dry. I would have expected better from a place like this in Wimbledon Village. It felt like it's amateur outfit and not very professional. Its a shame as the location is good.
Although the food was excellent the service here was so terrible that it ruined the entire experience. We were sat toward the back of the room and waited 40 minutes before managing to flag down a staff member to get us some menus. Utterly terrible.
We sat at the back and it was lovely and quiet. The service and food were, as always, excellent.
Too much ginger in fresh juices. Full English ok. Pity they ran out of filter coffee so we had tea which wasn’t great.
Quiet and pleasant experience, great food, prompt service, appropriately distanced tables - too many flies but it was a hot day and the doors were open!
Nice food, big over priced for the little portions but what you expect for the area. Note to the very lovely staff, remember to bring cutlery before the food arrives!
Nice place (especially if you choose to seat at the back), quick and friendly service. Menu could offer a couple more options, but food was quite tasty
A good experience but in the current situation staff had no mask and gloves
Disappointed that there was no fish on the menu on Tuesday.
I went there for dinner with few friends. We spent a very nice evening and the staff are so friendly. We will be back soon
Great service and food. The fish and salads were especially good.
Been there several Times food never disappoints, service can be slow sometimes but Covid doesn’t help that as not so many staff , would recommend this restaurant
Poor service, hot environment, long delays, very smelly.
Not the best this time round, no record of booking despite confirming day before through opentable. Understaffed despite reduced number of tables due to Covid. Waited about 25 mins for coffees, had to find waitress to order food, generally shambolic.
Food ok (brunch) but scrambled eggs were over cooked in and had a strange smoky flavour, tasted like it was cooked in a reused pan
Waitress did recognise the service was sub par and didn’t charge any service on the bill
Lovely dinner for two using the eat out to help out scheme. The menu was reasonably priced for the area and the food was delicious. I had salmon and my partner had steak with one of the great selection of salads on offer. Would definitely recommend and will go back.
the food is fantastic and it's a relaxed atmosphere
I felt violated sitting in this restaurant!!! Tables too close, no wait staff wearing masks, tables moved around and not wiped first, a shared pepper mill, no evidence of covid protection except a hand sanitiser at the entrance in the bar that no one used whist we were there!! Such a shame as the staff are lovely and the food is super but won’t be going there until this is over as felt unsafe. On talking to a waitress she said management had said they dont need to wear masks. I think this gives the wrong impression as no other covid protection in place and very close proximity of tables and diners, moving furniture and not wiping it first or well between customers is very wrong and dangerous. A pepper mill that moves from table to tables also very silly in these times. Needs fewer tables and there were no paper towels in the bathrooms either 😕
I have been eating at the Light on the Common for a few years. Service has always been a little haphazard but food is generally good. However, my last visit was disappointing. Cleanliness was poor, food remained on the floor from previous diners for the whole 2 hours we were there, I didn't see the tables wiped in between diners. Spacing between tables was only just ok. In times of Covid 19 this is not acceptable.
My friend's order was incorrect & the attitude of the waitress was questioning rather than accepting their mistake.
Improvements should be made.
We visited Light on the Common on one of the hottest days this summer. There is no air conditioning and they tried to cool the space with small floor fans and by opening doors to create a cross breeze. It was still really hot. The service was SLOW and not particularly attentive and the food (we were there for a late breakfast) was mediocre. The coffee was tasty but just not hot enough and the food items were OK... but only OK.
It's such a lovely little place where I have eaten before, but unfortunately on this occasion it just wasn't that great.
Super service and amazing flavours. Salads were particularly good. Such a surprise , normally just have brunch here. We will book again next time we are in Wimbledon.
This was our first meal out following lockdown so was a little apprehensive. We were pleased to see the table is suitably spaced apart although I don’t recall any other particular covered adjustments. The menu offered less than I’d seen on the website. The two waitresses were very busy – I have given them a good rating but really there needed to be another pair of hands I would suggest to the management.
Good location, friendly staff, good food. Overall a very pleasant lunch venue
Tasty satisfying food in a relaxed lovely setting. Not busy on an early lunch, but slow inattentive waitress service. I began to feel uncomfortable about the restaurant cleanliness as I did not see any cleaning of tables after 2 sets of customers had left & the next 2 were seated. This cannot be considered covid-safe standards. It's such a shame, as the food & venue are really good & tempting enough to return
A nice relaxed dinner with a friend with a welcome choice of seasonal food on the menu. We were both very happy with the choice and the only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars was that it was very warm in the restaurant - unsurprising since this was one of the hottest days of the year with temperatures well into the 30s. On a normal day I would have given 5 stars.
Good food and wine list.
