Fantastic resturant in th heart of Brixton. Very friendly servce, and the food was delicious.


This is a really cool authentic place to eat, I'd recommend the meat platter for 2, to share, which comes served on sourdough pancakes, (various stewed meats and veg), and more sourdough if you run out, and extra chillis if you need them. Afterwards there is a cute plate of popcorn and delicious coffee served. The local beers taste good, the house wine is also very tasty. It is one of my fave restaurants in Brixton. Regarding the comment below, the bread is sourdough, so that is how it is supposed to taste, it is by far not the worst place ever....maybe you should go to Mcdonalds or KFC next time, Jen.


Lovely relaxed place to eat with friends - ideally very hungry ones. The vegetarian options are good. Make sure you allow enough time after your meal for coffee and popcorn - the roasting etc takes a while but is a lovely experience. A really special and authentic place to eat.


The food was really tasty and not like anything I had ever tried before. I would go back and spend another evening there. It was open late, so we did not leave until after 11pm when we had to rush off to the Ritzy cinema. The staff were polite and the atmosphere was relaxed.
