Little Bay, Croydon

Little Bay
32 Selsdon Rd
South Croydon CR2 6PB

A little while back I reviewed my visit to Little Bay in Farringdon. Despite the restricted choices for veggies, the food was so good and the price so reasonable that I decided to visit another of their branches, this time in Croydon.

From the outside, Croydon's Little Bay looks like a Swiss chalet, and the wooden beams and decor inside the front part of the restaurant continues that theme. The rear of the restaurant has the red and gold decoration (including the "big head") that those who have visited the Farringdon branch will be familiar with.

The food in this branch is as well presented and tasty as the Farringdon restaurant - I recommend the Feta Terrine for starters - and the service was great. We arrived for our meal around 6pm and took advantage of the lower pre-7 prices. For two starters, two mains, a side of chips, two desserts, bread and drinks it cost us a total of £24 plus tip. That's amazing for the quality of the food we had. As well as the terrine mentioned earlier that we had for starters, I had Goats Cheese tortilla with artichokes & peppers for main which was very tasty and my wife had pork medallions with coriander & chilli mash. For dessert we both had the apple cake with custard and ice cream - yumm.

Little Bay in Croydon is now on our list of restaurants to visit again, as it's not too far from where we live and, if there's a Little Bay near you, I recommend you to do the same.
