I was really sorry to read below about the poor service offered to mothers with children at The Brockley Mess, their experiences sound dreadful. I see this place from a totally different perspective, however, perhaps because I'm not a mum with children. I really rate the BM for its delicious, wholesome, well priced and well portioned breakfasts. I usually have scrambled eggs which are light, fluffy, and voluminous; granary toast which is always deliciously buttered; and mushrooms which are full of flavour and kind of yummily caramelised. My boyfriend usually gets the Full English which looks delicious, and the Fruit Salad with honey-drizzled yogurt and granola is a light, sweet, and refreshing accompaniment to a savoury brekkie.
Each table has a bottle of topped-up ketchup and brown sauce, excellent salt and pepper mills. The place is well decorated, comfortable, and well ventilated and staff are reasonably friendly. The menu is varied, the food always fresh. In all, it's a great place to go, especially when nursing a hangover.
I would heartily recommend The Brockley Mess.
