The Clock House

Squaremeal Review of The Clock House ?

Recently refurbished in the quirky country-kitchen style typical of Young’s boozers, this gastropub on Peckham Rye Common now boasts a sprawling dining area with clusters of ornamental plates, old-fashioned lampshades and brightly cushioned booths against a tasteful, neutral background. The result is a welcoming space with a pretty flowered terrace perfect for summer. To start, choose from globe-trotting small plates – perhaps crisply coated, shredded pig’s cheeks, bouncy Asian-style squid rings or heady truffled celeriac fries. Mains channel gastropub favourites: the house burger with bloody Mary relish is a cheese-dribbled masterpiece, while cottage pie pushes the envelope with the addition of bone marrow. After that, try a moist chocolate brownie or the sweet-savoury delights of salted caramel ice cream. Swift, smiley service and an approachable wine list entice locals of all ages to gather for languorous Cheers-style evenings.
