Angels & Gypsies at the Church Street Hotel 1

Squaremeal Review of Angels & Gypsies at the Church Street Hotel ?

‘Funky, fun and great food’, is one reader’s verdict on this ‘slightly chaotic’ but lovable tapas joint within the Church Street Hotel. Cured meats (including fine ibérico de Bellota jamón) are hand carved at the central bar, and the menu mixes staples such as tortilla and croquetas with more unusual dishes that introduce the exotic flavours of the Maghreb and beyond. Seared rabbit comes with chickpeas, cumin and Moroccan chakchouka, while a rich aubergine and coriander stew strikes a Middle Eastern note. At lunchtime, the menu heads down Mexico way with hearty burritos and tacos alongside a reduced tapas selection – although Spain rules the wine list, which boasts some ‘really affordable and interesting labels’ and a handful of food-friendly sherries. A new basement bar has doubled capacity at this moreish Moorish charmer.

As a Cambewell resident some four years ago, I had four primary dining choices, PIzza at The Grove, a gawdy yet perfectly acceptable Curry house, Nandos on a busy intersection and a quiet gem, Viva Espana beneath a sixty pounds a night hotel. Three years later it appears the culinary landscape has not altered a great deal in SE5 although the Tapas bar and adjoining hotel have been transformed into ‘Angels and Gypsies’, a shrine to the religious and supernatural and maybe Gipsy Hill ?, the restaurant...

    I stumbled on Angels & Gypsies whilst passing through Camberwell, and was intrigued – the area isn’t somewhere I’d normally head as a destination, but this place looked lovely. Its the restaurant of the Church Street Hotel, and the theme runs throughout – the seats are old pews and there’s stained glass on the walls. It was pretty quiet for a Saturday lunch and I grabbed a coffee – a very good cappuccino.

    I pretty much looked at the menu out of curiosity – I’m meant to have stopped eating out, to save money and get thin for the impending wedding.. but the menu was so unexpectedly enticing I couldn’t resist...
