Clearly not somewhere that contributors to this website go to very often, and I can understand why. It is certainly not in mid-town, but if you are in the Dulwich area, Franklins is well worth a visit.
The front is a pub and the back is the restaurant. It was Monday so it was pretty quiet, but we had a very good time. It is such a bonus to be able to hear each other speak because the tables are not too close together.
The food was delicious, the menu sensibly small and the red and white wines were appreciated by all. Most of the dishes are quite unusual (lots of game when we went) and the prices reflect good cooking with excellent ingredients. Puddings, all home made, went down a treat. They serve Meantime beer, which is very smooth.
I have left the best to last. The person who served us was probably the best waiter/waitress that I have ever been served by. Nothing was too much trouble, she anticipated our every need, offered to go to their shop across the road to get gluten-free ice cream, was swift, thoughtful and charming. Any restaurant would learn a lot by employing her.
The price - say £50 a head, which is pretty well the base price these days, and the area, from what I could see, is definitely up and coming.
