They were offering free ice-cream at the weekend (Saturday I think). Massive queue!
The prices are perfectly reasonable really
Have you eaten one? I've eate there several times and they've always been very average for the price.
Oh wait, here's the rest of that menu that you 'accidentally' forgot to include:
The HH one is a grill as well isn't it? They've changed the layout a little from the terrible Milkwood.
But then that site is generally doomed - Milkwood was awful, Jazz on the Hill - didn't bother, The Poet - pfft, Escape Bar was fun but then got itself into trouble.
yes - I had a gelato there last week and treated my kids to one too. I found it a bit too sweet for my taste and I think the youngest did too as she didn't finish hers. The older girl loved hers though and they had lovely flavours - elderflower, passionfruit and there was a special that day that involved peanut butter.
I liked the Escape Bar. Nice and down to earth and you can get far better pizzas around the corner. But yes, it's a tough site. That said, isn't Off The Cuff doing alright now?
Always looks busy when I go by and they have live music 5 nights a week (DJs fri/sat)
Nice and down to earth if you were involved in illegal drugs trade (which is part of its demise) and music license infringements you mean?!
I really like 500 degrees* - but their flour doesn't agree with me for some reason - they're also a different style of pizza than Agile - but around the same price. The restaurant's a bit hot and claustrophobic though - some of their other branches are a bit comfier.
OTC - yes, the live music seems to be going ok - partly as lots of local people are involved in some way or another. Overpriced beer still etc. Can't say they really helped with their support at the new Fish & Wine place though, which is still Mary Celeste.
*I'm assuming you're not referring to Pizza Express.
Of course not. The appeal of that chain totally eludes me.
Not quite sure where that spelling came from!
.....from the menu posted above in #2234
I meant their spelling! It's not even French or Italian for artichoke.
It's either a faux pas de Del Boy or a little known strain of franglais unique to the colline d'herne......I'm guessing the latter
must go check it out, but I hate queues.
Probably won't be a big queue now as no longer free!
oooh - I used to work with one of the Mekons. Kevin - lovely chap. 25 years ago.
This is a quintessentially Herne Hill post.
Good God, what was that track?
Oh good. I didn't even notice that you had said it was free in your first post.
They got through it quick and the ice cream was great!
So pleased this place has re-opened - have you been and is it good?
Re. Cafe Prov the staff can be slow / forgetful but the place is lovely, the food is great, and everyone's friendly.
Recent addition to the forums here and hoping to be a permanent fixture. I'm a Herne Hill local who lives about 2 minutes away from Brockwell Park - I work as a freelancer in film & TV, currently looking for a canine companion in between jobs if anyone is in need of a FREE dog sitter / walker!
I'm sure you'll soon meet all the local dogs and their people if you hang out in the many doggie friendly pubs/ cafes and walk in the park.
Thanks FOD - glad to be here.
The Parlour has been a joy to hang out in recently with this weather - everyone apparently has a dog when it turns summer.
Perhaps they borrow them too?
Whats so good about the Parlour then? never actually been there as I'm not sure I'm the target market - tbf I'm not the target market anywhere these days and rarely go anywhere that's not a pub.
