Seek out this artfully dishevelled bar tucked away in a post-nuclear railway arch off Peckham’s main drag if you’re after booze and a buzz hereabouts. Good-natured queues assemble for happy-hour cocktails (6-7pm), while DJs play to a crowd of style-mag slackers on Saturday evenings. Either way, well-priced ideas such as bramble, whiskey sour, Tom Collins, sing sling and negroni aren’t about to break the bank at the rammed bar. Similarly affordable pizzas, burgers and other comfort classics are backed by reasonable wines, Estrella beer and cider on tap in the heaving courtyard. Say ‘hello’ to the resident goldfish and ponder the plethora of pictures of Nigella Lawson dotted around the place – Belgravia-accustomed domestic goddesses are not the norm in this full-throttle neck of the woods.
