We had a really super meal at The White Onion on my husband’s birthday. The service was excellent. There was none of that intrusive ho hanging around with over anxious questions or unnecessary topping up of wine that you sometimes get in good restaurants, but somehow the waiters were always just there when we needed something.
I had the white onion and epoisse cheese tart and then the duck. He had the scotch duck egg and the venison wellington. All perfectly cooked and delicious.
Will definitely go again. This restaurant has great improved since last time we went and is now the best in the Village if not the area. I’d be happy to eat like that in central London.

Excellent food, excellent ambience. Being slightly picky but the service was a bit on the relaxed side i.e. just slightly too slow

The White Onion is a charming restaurant, elegant but informal, in the centre of Wimbledon village. It has a matching, seasonal menu with some fine touches: exceptionally good bread; a fine venison pate with pistachio, prune & brandy (and caperberry) was followed by a really good main of monkfish with fennel, spatzle, a tuile and light beurre blanc - a really beautifully balanced blend of flavours and textures. My husband had perfectly cooked cod with artichoke and crispy tapioca although the 'ancient grains' were perhaps a touch too earthy. Lush mashed potato and broccoli dipped (we think) in a gram flour batter was delicious and both worthy accompaniments. Alas, we were too full to attempt a dessert (with myself being 3 months post bariatric surgery so somewhat challenged) but we would have happily chosen any of those on offer, all of which sounded exquisite.
Service was attentive, professional and unobtrusive - so rare these days but lovely to experience. The food is matched with a good range of wines with many by the glass; some very good ones too if prepared to spend a little more; always great value if you know where to tread; perhaps just a little shy of some more aged fine wines.
I've been dining in Wimbledon (both village and the town proper) for some 20 years - and one can eat very well across a range of cuisines, from some of the better chains to delightful one-offs. The White Onion is a fabulous place for a really good meal - and the first place that has real Michelin class as opposed to just aspiration. Worth keeping an eye on.
