Where to eat and drink in Peckham, SE15?
The definitive guide to eating and drinking in SE15
A few years ago a night out in Peckham conjured up images of The Nag’s Head from the hit BBC comedy Only Fools & Horses. How times have changed. Peckham now boasts some of the best pubs, bars and restaurants in London, and it’s just a short train or bus journey from Central London.
PUBS AND BARS
Frank’s Café *Star Pick*
Not-for-profit Frank’s Café opened in 2008 and has been serving up the best Campari and Negroni cocktails ever since. Its unique location, atop multi-storey car park on Rye Lane will ensure that every visit is memorable. Frank’s is particularly enjoyable on a long summer night, where you can sit and watch the sunset over the capital. The food is excellent and there is also a Sunday brunch. A must visit for any SE15 first-timer.
Address: 10th Floor, Peckham Multi-Story Car Park, Rye Lane, SE15 4ST.
The Rye on Peckham Rye Road features a whopper-of-a-beer garden, a decent ale selection, an outside table tennis table, separate bar and restaurant menus, and does a mean Sunday roast. A solid Peckham pub choice.
Address: 31 Peckham Rye, London, SE15 3NX.
Telephone: 020 7639 5397
The independently run Montpellier is another great Peckham pub, and offers locally brewed beers from Meantime and Sambrooks as well as spirits from independent distillers Haymans Gin and Goslings Rum. The kitchen also serves quality seasonal fayre. However, what sets The Montpellier apart is it’s 30-seater Back Room Cinema, showing the latest independent films and documentaries.
