157 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, LONDON, SE22 8HX
British produce is celebrated zealously at Franklins, an exemplary neighbourhood eatery that combines the virtues of a pubby bar and a buzzy bistro at the rear that's all exposed brick, bare floorboards, big Victorian mirrors, and paper-clothed tables with an open view into the kitchen. There are gutsy starters such as haslet - a meatloaf of chopped pork and offal - with home-made piccalilli, followed by straight-up platefuls of lamb's kidneys with Swiss chard and mustard, or hearty, no-frills ideas such as red leg partridge with butternut squash and bacon. Caramelised apple and almond frangipane tart keeps pudding firmly in the comfort zone.
