SquareMeal Review of The Clock House Peckham Rye

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.

The decor looks pretty in a fake-hipster sort of way, but as an actual restaurant, this is a waste of money. The food's been going downhill for a while now; what finally clinched it for us was when we went there on a Saturday night, to find that: - They'd run out of one of the only two vegetarian options; when I said I'd tried the other and didn't like it, the waitress actually agreed that it was pretty disgusting, and when I asked if the kitchen could just do me a fried egg (which was part of one of their other dishes) she said no - The drinks were ridiculously expensive - The waitress was snitty and rude High prices, bad restaurant. Not worth it.
