This “interesting” conversion of the Victorian booking hall and goods rooms at Peckham Rye station accommodates a café/restaurant whose modern menu is “thoughtful without being too crazy”. The day-time brunch offering gets a thumbs-up, too, as “many steps ahead of the typical avo on toast”. (A back-handed compliment from north of the river: “As an ex-north Londoner, I was amazed to find this in central Peckham. How things have changed!”)

“Extra points on ambience for the Victorian toilets” at the 19th-century booking hall and goods rooms of Peckham Rye station, now transformed into an all-day café and evening restaurant. It serves a “limited” but “delicious” menu of modern European dishes and fans say results are “always spot-on”.

“What a superb place”: the old goods rooms and booking hall of Peckham Rye station – lending the enterprise “a touch of Victorian elegance” – repurposed five years ago as a modern restaurant serving “tasty and beautifully presented European dishes, with thoughtful and attentive staff, brilliant cocktails and a good wine list”. “If only we’d retained and re-used more of these buildings”. Top Tip: “the best toilets in south London”.

“A must-visit, right by Peckham station” – whose converted Grade II ticket office houses this “excellent” three-year-old: a stand-out even by the area’s lofty standards. “Robust, even macho” dishes, from the smoker and robata grills, are central both to the open kitchen and the menu. Top Tip – “worth a visit for the WC alone” – beautifully restored, old, Victorian bogs.
