“A great place to have in the neighbourhood” – this “lovely” Antipodean-run fixture is set – with its own sizable outside terrace – in a large and characterful Victorian laundry; and “sitting next to Brixton Market means it always has a lively vibe with some added street theatre”. “Lots of cocktails are enjoyed at the weekends here”, when it’s a favourite destination. But “it works for brunch, lunch or dinner” with an all-day menu incorporating a good selection of modern bistro dishes alongside more breakfast-ish staples.

This “impressive” three-year-old in Brixton is set in a handsome converted Victorian laundry. The first venture of Melanie Brown (a former chef and founder of the New Zealand and Australian Cellar wine businesses), it wins consistent ratings across the board for its “good food, great service and buzzy atmosphere”.

This two-year-old all-day restaurant and wine shop occupies a “lovely conversion of an Edwardian laundry” in Brixton. “The terrace is fantastic” and “the food is good – bavette steak & chips for £17 is pretty good value these days”. It’s the first restaurant from Melanie Brown, a former chef and wine buyer for Kiwi star Peter Gordon who went on to found the New Zealand and Australian Cellar wine businesses.

Summary

Opening in November 2019, at Walton Lodge in Brixton: an all-day neighbourhood café, restaurant and wine shop from Melanie Brown, who used to work with Peter Gordon and launched The New Zealand Cellar and Australian Cellar. In the morning it will offer pastries and other light bites, and in the evening cocktails and a menu of more substantial dishes.
