Squaremeal Review of Pedler ?

This polished newcomer sits incongruously on Peckham Rye, a scruffy thoroughfare where dining options have hitherto run to branches of Chicken Cottage. Vintage mismatched crockery and cut-glass tumblers define Pedler’s look, along with bare brickwork, wooden flooring and flights of fancy such as pineapple-patterned fabrics covering the bar stools. The seasonal, modern British menu changes almost completely every day, save for a signature dish of ‘frizzle chicken’ – the crunchiest of chicken nuggets served with an assertively spiced ‘attitude’ sauce. Other hits include juicy, charred lamb chops (from local butcher Flock & Herd) with saffron-flecked potatoes, and rich desserts such as sticky ginger cake with local vanilla ice cream: south London on a plate. Most seating is cramped, but the welcome is warm, the staff enthusiastic, and the atmosphere buzzing from breakfast until the witching hour. To drink, well-balanced cocktails made with Little Bird gin are the way to go.

If you have a thumping hangover, the staple dutchie pancake is likely to catch your eye. This Yorkshire pudding-esque batter bowl is as big as a human head, and contains a pool of molten...

    I have to be honest with you, Peckham is not somewhere I often frequent but as a friend recently moved near the area, what better chance to explore I thought. After a quick check on Twitter, as Peckham Bazaar was closed, the next best option seemed to be Pedler in (is it in or on?) Peckham Rye.

    It’s a cute little place both on the inside and out. Lots of miss-matched furniture and bits and bobs everywhere gave the feeling of being in a trendy furniture shop. The music playlist was particularly noteworthy – they were banging out some serious tunes. Along with some super friendly staff, it had the potential...
