Maybe you fancy a mid-week treat, or just don’t feel like cooking. I have compiled a list of some of my favourite London restaurants to suit a mid-range budget. From right on Roehampton’s doorstep to slightly further afield, you’ll be able to find something that suits you in this list of mid-range restaurants.
A walk or a quick ride on the 265 from campus, this local restaurant delivers well-made big portions at decent prices. With items on their menu from across the globe, choosing what to have can sometimes be a challenge here, as the long list contains hoards of sumptuous dishes. They offer lunch, dinner and a fabulous brunch that’s not to be missed.

Spoon squidge cheek 🥄 I had the most delicious Thai/egg bowl for breakfast at a charming little cafe in Putney. I love finding affordable spots… SO over paying 15 quid for a meal that costs £2 to make at home. 💆🏽♀️ Then onto filming in Battersea power station and more house viewings 📷 🏡 ps. Probably didn’t need to wear so much bling. #breakfastbling
All-you-can-eat Chinese and sushi, cooked fresh and on demand? Yes please! Behind an unassuming front on Streatham High Road, this restaurant offers a wide range of good quality dishes, with the all-you-can-eat option for £16.50, alongside a great set menu too. Great food cooked and delivered to your table in great time – there’s loads of time to eat as much as you can. A hidden jewel.
8. The Italian Boys
An incredibly extensive menu sets this place apart from other Roehampton-local Italians. Their pizza is great, their pasta is great, and the prices are ridiculously good too. Always an easy winner for a nice lunch or satisfying dinner. Their crab ravioli is well worth a try.
This beautiful Italian is close by in Richmond, and boasts an amazingly authentic menu. Great atmosphere and beautifully crafted dishes make this restaurant the perfect location for date night – relax and let the waiters advise you, whilst you imagine you’re eating in Italy.
6. Made In Italy
With a great terrace overlooking King’s Road, this pizzeria is the ideal spot to indulge in A LOT of pizza. The vegan options here are incredible, and they can offer near enough any of their toppings in a veggie/vegan version. Their pizzas are massive and are definitely the right option to choose when ravenous!
5. Pappa Ciccia
In my humble opinion, Pappa Ciccia offers the best pizza in London, and is available for takeaway as well as eating in. My absolute favourite is the Bufalina – tomato with slightly melted buffalo mozzarella and basil, great at anytime of the day. Pappa Ciccia’s chefs are super speedy, so your pizza is guaranteed to arrive at your table, or be delivered to your front door, in no time.
Situated in the midst of bustling Broadway Market, Okko serves simple food influenced by Japan and Hawaii. Bursting with flavour, each dish is a feast for the eyes as much as it also satisfies the tastebuds. Sushi, katsu, ramen, tacos and gyoza are all key staples, cooked to perfection. I recommend the salmon katsu – it’s incredible!
Another conveniently situated eatery, Annie’s is found just a short walk away, on White Hart Lane, in Barnes. Priding themselves on good food and generous portions, the never-ending menu always presents a challenge when having to make the final decision on what to go for. As well as being gorgeously decorated inside, the staff are always cheery, and make the overall experience feel that slight bit more indulgent than the reasonable prices imply.

An absolute gem, tucked away in a pedestrianised mecca of restaurants just off of Regent Street. Fully veggie and 80% vegan (Tuesdays are 100% vegan), this self-service buffet restaurant has a pay by plate weight system, meaning that you decide the price. My plates tend to average around £13, but I like to pile them high!
1. Petersham Nurseries Teahouse
An absolute gem for a truly delicious, nourishing lunch. Perfectly rustic, expect a full plate crammed with goodness, to be enjoyed whilst sitting in the beautiful greenhouse. Their wholesome food is accompanied by a selection of seasonal salads, all of which are worth a try – I recommend going with some friends and all sharing, to ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the excellent flavours.
