Squaremeal Review of The Hope Peckham ?

Antic, an expanding pubco with venues in south and east London, is known for sympathetically reinvigorating existing boozers – but this friendly watering hole at the end of Rye Lane is a new-build. Not that you’d be aware of the fact when ensconced in The Hope’s meandering interior with its ‘granny-chic’ decor (complete with bookshelves and patterned wallpaper). The venture is so new, it currently relies on rotating street-food residencies – serving Colombian empanadas, for instance – until the kitchen is ready. Meanwhile, the drinks line-up tempts both beardy ale fans and the area’s footloose youth. Niche beers from London-based brewers are the mainstay, including Peckham’s Brick Brewery and By The Horns in Wandsworth, supported by Antic’s own Volden Vim and bottles such as a sweet, refreshing mead from Gosnells. The chatty staff will also happily serve you an Aperol Spritz, which goes well with just about everything on the constantly changing menu.

I suspect the split-level space really comes alive on a Saturday night, which is quite a feat for a new-build. Chipper, chatty staff are upbeat and eager. The...
