The trek out of the center of town to Clapham is worth it when it means heading to The Manor, where a good dose of Scandi influence on Modern British cuisine is hard at work with all the pickling and fermentation that comes with. Dishes like hay-baked Pigeon, pickled girolles, and crispy chicken skin with kimchi may sound fastidious—they are—but they’re also light, elegant, and delicious. What balances it all out is the care-free and downright fun, almost pub-like vibe. Plus, for dessert, you can build your own gourmet sundae at the bar. This is a place that takes the food on the table and the service seriously, but—refreshingly—not itself.
