This shabby-chic eaterie sits above British deli Cannon & Cannon in one of Brixton Market’s revamped shopping arcades. Expect an ultra-casual setting, with scuffed paintwork, battered metal furniture and a cramped kitchen.

Wine is served in tumblers, and the chefs sometimes pop out to deliver plates to tables themselves. Dishes tend to be simple, with an emphasis on fresh, very seasonal produce. At lunch, there’s a deli menu of small plates sourced from downstairs. Come dinner, there’s a no-choice set menu of five courses (with matching wines, if wanted).

If you can find it, and can get a table, the upstairs is now called 'Salon' and serves top quality, seasonal food at alarmingly decent prices. I was impressed. And that's saying something. Get there - make sure to book - gd luck finding it though!

The waitress mixed up our drink order and charged us for it. Nothing else about it would convince me to rate it higher.


Brilliant. Love this place and their evening events. Highly recommended for cured meats and cheese.


I'm so pleased that Cannon & Cannon has come to Brixton! It's a most welcome addition to one of my favourite places to eat (Brixton Village/Market). If you love cured meat, you'll love Cannon & Cannon. Try the fennel salami.....mmmmm.


Loved it. Friendly knowledgable staff, great simple food with a nice laid back atmosphere. The Welsh smoked ham nearly converted by vegetarian wife back to being a carnivore. We will be going back.

I have been eating cured meats the world over for many years and never thought that Britain could produce such refined and meats. Well done to the guys at Cannon and Cannon-if you like cured meats, this place is well worth a visit.


finally! Brixton and Herne Hill have been crying out for a cheese shop for as long as I can remember, so this is very welcome! We spent a few hours in there on a rainy Sunday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed everything we had. We went with some Italian friends, who were initially hesitant about the full English menu, but were blown away by the selection and quality of cheeses and meats that the UK produce. The cold smoked mutton was surprisingly good - I left feeling that I had been educated about the decent quality of food that is right on my doorstep. Thank you Cannon & Cannon - we'll see you again soon!
