SquareMeal Review of
Four Hundred Rabbits Nunhead
No trendy London neighbourhood is complete anymore without an upmarket pizza place: thanks to its proximity to trendy Peckham, under-the-radar Nunhead has this one on its steadily gentrifying high street. A carbon copy of the successful formula launched in nearby Crystal Palace, Four Hundred Rabbits mixes cheerful colours and bold, arty design with a simple menu of wood-fired sourdough pizzas, craft beers and artisan ice cream. The pizzas are great, their bases topped with lashings of tangy tomato sauce and quality ingredients, from goats’ cheese with piquillo peppers and rocket to enticing specials (tacked up on the pegboard walls) featuring pig cheeks, rhubarb and more. Service is eager, while the cocktail list includes barrel-aged Negronis and pre-bottled, locally produced ‘seltzers’. The customers dotted around the restaurant’s counters, high tables and tiny alfresco area are a good cross section of Nunhead – always a sign of a strong all-rounder.
