This south London pub has been taken over by Doghouse Pubs; chef Jamie Young who also owns the Begging Bowl in Peckham has been brought in to create the menu.
Harden's survey result
A welcome 2021 relaunch after being closed for years – this roadhouse on the South Circular between Sydenham and Catford serves “generous” dishes that “elevate it beyond pub grub, but without pretending to be a gastropub”. The food comes courtesy of Jamie Younger, who runs Peckham’s Begging Bowl and was formerly at the Palmerston in East Dulwich; his “smoked and slow-cooked options are a triumph (red chicken, short ribs)”. The “huge outdoor areas” make “weekend lunch en famille with toddlers a jolly affair” – a market sector enticed by a discount club for parents with young kids.
“What a treat to discover the suntrap garden” behind a “reinvented boozer on the South Circular” that was previously closed for many years – “a huge (250 seat) outdoor eating area, some of it undercover”. This April 2021 newcomer in Perry Vale (between Catford and Sydenham) has a characterful interior too, and a “good menu” overseen by Jamie Young, who used to own Dulwich’s excellent Palmerston pub (and who still runs Peckham’s Begging Bowl).
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
