In Horto Wood Fired Restaurant Southwark Street London

We came across In Horto, the Wood-Fired Cooking Restaurant, on an evening walk. The outdoor eatery has a rustic vibe with a delightful alfresco dining set-up. Next door is Carrubo, a Mediterranean beach bar. Both are inside a pedestrianised area, so it has a relaxing feel. If you’re looking for the best places for dinner in Bankside, restaurants on Southwark Street or outside dining in London SE1, you’ll love In Horto.

In Horto Wood Fired Cooking Menu

The menu is concise yet has something for vegetarians, meat and fish eaters. Start your meal with the fabulous fresh Olive Oil Bread or Tear and Share Loaf. Pair yours with Burnt Onion Butter, Nduja Butter or the Aubergine Dip. We chose the melt-in-your-mouth Olive Oil Bread with delicious Burnt Onion Butter; both were beautiful!

We shared two mains: a Whole Baked Cauliflower and Potatoes in a Four Cheese Sauce. It’s a filling and comforting dish that will satisfy your hunger. My partner is fond of cauliflower cheese, so he was super happy.

We paired it with the Parmigiana di Melanzane, one of my favourite Italian dishes with sliced aubergines, a rich tomato sauce, melted cheese and fresh basil. The mains are brought to the table in round cast iron-eared dishes straight from the wood-fired oven, so don’t touch them!

Other tempting mains are Cod Fillet, Fire Roasted Ratatouille with Herb and Preserved Lemon Salsa. Another fish option is Butterflied Mackerel, Paprika Roasted Fennel with Preserved Lemon. Meat eaters may want the Pork Belly with Bacon and Spiced Beans or the Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Harissa Veggies. Alternatively, try the Roast Chicken with Creme Fraiche, Garlic Potatoes and Leeks.

Add a side to pad out your meal. We thought the White Bean with Roast Tomatoes, Mint and Chilli was lovely and would try to recreate it at home. Otherwise, it’s a Carrot, Celeriac, Cabbage Slaw, or Seasonal Greens with Shallots and Herbs.

Save a little room for dessert, which was Tiramisu on our visit. It’s homemade; they bring it to your table and scoop it out from a big dish. It’s a decent serving, so you could share one between the two as we did. It tasted a bit boozy, like it was laced with Marsala wine or espresso coffee. I could eat Tiramisu for every dessert, so I was content.

The main dishes range from £12 to £18 for a single serving with the option to order it as a portion for two/three, which is a little cheaper. The sides are £6, and the bread is £3-4.50 for a quarter plus £3-4 for the butter or a dip. The dessert costs £8. Drinks include wines and Garden Inspired Cocktails such as AmarHorto (Blanco Tequila, Amaretto and Orange).
