Blank is good - when Iived down the road I used to go regularly. Good Kiwi lad too
Wing Tai is stocking some wicked instant curry sauce concentrates ATM
Great for fans of curry sauce and chips takeaway style without stepping outdoors
Iceland steak cut oven chips are a good option if you don't have a chip pan...
May be wrong thread, but Elm Park Tavern is changing hands as of Monday 15 July. Just walked past and saw the sign up. Staff staying
I'm hearing that the Cambria is in trouble. Electricity supply has been cut off so they've hired in a noisy generator outside.
This was been run by same crowd behind the King and Co on Clapham Park Road, right?
If it was anything like that place, its maybe a good job its changing hands. I once overheard the bearded bellend who manages the King an Co whinging that drinkers in the Elm Park Tavern didn't understand or appreciate all their fancy, expensive beer. Sounds like they threw in the towel .
It was always really busy whenever I went in/past. During the week and weekends.
They recently started shutting Mondays, for the summer.
It was not super quiet but not as busy as perhaps they'd have liked during early week.
I actually prefer a quiet boozer most days
Hand in Hand is closing down
July 27th and August 10th are the two shindigs to say goodbye to the Hand in Hand
sorry my facebook link didn't work
Ah, they've set it to private.
I walked past Dip&Flip today, shutters were down....
The only people that ever made that place a success was Kaff. And then the landlords got greedy. I can't say DipnFlip offered anything that appealed to me.
This looks like an advert for gluttony
from one shit chain to another... Dip & Flip closes Brixton restaurant
I've just added a piece here: Brixton’s Dip & Flip closes after three years to be replaced by Tequila Mockingbird cocktail bar
Seeing as so many restaurants seem to seamlessly be turning into bars/clubs as well (e.g. The Chip Shop/Rum Kitchen), I've renamed the title of the thread to include bar/pub news.
What's happening with The Lounge these days? Opening times seem to be erratic and it appears to have a shrinking customer base.
I'm sure it's a place that I would never want to go to (and they wouldn't want my demographic) but...
i kind of like the cheap "tequila mockingbird" pun
Morley's on Brixton Hill, been shuttered for a couple of months now. No longer on their website. No agent sign up yet.
Think the one opposite Streatham station is also shut now as when I went past the other day there was an ominous bit of paper stuck to it that looked like a possession order
That one's not on the website either. Central-south's been hollowed out; denied Morley's chicken!
The Coldharbour Lane one is still open, not that I'm ever tempted.
I will take a closer look when I have more time
Anyone following the Duke of Edinburgh licensing issue?
Historic Brixton pub warns that licence objections could close it
It's a familiar story - new demanding neighbours + busier pub = objections ahoy - but I doubt that they'll actually close.
Though of course it could be long term existing neighbours + busier pub + enough is enough. I would suspect this is more likely
I and other neighbours had discussions with the then owners of The Duke, Pubs and Bars exactly 13 years ago about the new licensing laws and what their effect might be on the immediate neighbours. We had cause for concern way back then and the bar was much less busy. So this is not a new thing for the Duke and it’s neighbours, new or otherwise.
This is a bit confusing but it appears to be a planning application for a Gourmet Pizza on Atlantic Road. Can anyone clarify?

And the ropey drawing
This is weird, Brixton has great, cheap pizza places. This feels a bit like someone doesn’t understand what is already here.
Ps their cheapest pizza is 1.25 more than Franco manca’s more expensive ! And nearly 2x their cheapest !
Anyway, also Walton laundry The Laundry sees Walton Lodge on Coldharbour Lane turning into an all day neighbourhood brasserie and bar | Latest news | Hot Dinners
I’m a bit lost as I thought that the number of A3/4 food and drink licenses was only allowed up to a certain quota in order not to saturate a confined area such as Brixton ? How can Brixton Bar and Grill apply to turn the old ‘ The Baron ‘ menswear Unit originally at 23 Atlantic Road into a A3 Unit from a A1 ?
And another one....
NZ wine expert Mel Brown to open Brixton wine shop and bistro
She doesn't seem linked with the NZ wine shop in Pop either.
These Kiwi wine retailers!
