SquareMeal Review of The Half Moon Herne Hill

In 2013 a disastrous flood, caused by a burst water main, threatened the existence of this landmark 1890s gin palace. Rowing to the rescue, new owners Fuller’s restored many original features including the snug bar’s painted mirrors. The Half Moon’s days as a music venue – when everyone from Frank Sinatra to U2 appeared here – may be behind it (the upstairs space now accommodates boutique hotel rooms), but the range of draught craft beers is worth singing about. Ales from Brockwell Park microbrewery, Bullfinch, are top of the list. Otherwise, order organic red Côtes du Rhône, mid-point on a sensibly priced wine list, or various in-house cocktails. In the plant-strewn, airy dining room, choose from a range of Anglo-European pub food: the likes of grilled salmon with chorizo and butter-bean cassoulet. Outside, the sunny, child-friendly beer garden boasts an alfresco bar, firepit and barbecue – plus a converted workshop ideal for functions.
