Peckham Refreshment Rooms

Squaremeal Review of Peckham Refreshment Rooms ?

Imagine the perfect neighbourhood eatery, and you might come up with something like this bar-restaurant: a place to stop for a proper coffee on your way to work; somewhere to meet friends for a post-commute drink or a pre-cinema bite; a venue for a lazy Sunday brunch – and all a short hop from the station. Drinkers are encouraged to linger longer by the small-plates menu, which blends French classics (duck confit, tartiflette) with Italian favourites (soft polenta and ceps, aged Parmesan and truffle honey). The drinks list is equally enticing, combining grown-up cocktails, old-school aperitifs and a handful of wines and beers. Capacity (and comfort) has doubled since the owners acquired the space next door, adding bookable tables to the bum-numbing stools mostly saved for walk-ins. The simple interior features exposed copper pipes and unplastered render in a look that’s more welcoming than it sounds.

The waitress couldn't even tell me what type of beer they had on offer. I could barely taste the aubergine in the “Sicialani aubergine and borlloti beans”. And to top it all, I paid 12.5% service charge for sitting on a stool about half a metre from the bar counter. Bad decor, bad acoustics and bad value for money.

    After a tip off from @GingerGourmand we backed up this meal with a visit to Peckham Refreshment Rooms. Again, a very similar setup – two frontage space with a bar splitting the room and an open kitchen with chefs on show. I never got a look at the wine menu so can’t say how it compares with Toast(ed) but we were sitting on 500ml Kernel Table Beer bottles – and for £5 that’s super value. But it’s worth sitting on with some great cheese and truffle honey...
