    London Calling: Peckham

    2 July 2012 Last updated at 00:38 Help
    As part of the London Calling season, BBC World Service has been discovering some of the quirkier areas of the Olympic city.
    In this fourth episode, Faranak Amidi from BBC Persian visits Peckham - one of the most cosmopolitan areas in the city which still manages to retain a traditional pie and mash shop and local Pearly King.

    What is the Red Cow pub like? Went past it today and it looked intriguing :hmm:

    I lived not far from there but used to go to the Bun House, Greyhound and sometimes the Wetherspoon as they were generally in the direction I would be going.
     
  10. is that the "modern"one under the block on Queens road ?

    So it looks like Burger Bear have taken over the kitchen at The Old Nun's Head for the next 3 weeks. I've never been to this pub, but I definitely want to try their burgers whilst they are there. The pub tweeted this pic on Tue.

    Anyone been?
     
  12. its a decent pub- not as good as the Gowlett for food ( as long as you like pizzas).in fasct, the owners of the gowlett used to have the nuns heed as well

    Had a grizzly burger today, it was really good. Definitely going back for another burger before the takeover ends on September 5th.

    I used to go to Frank's when it started a few years back. But from what I hear, nowadays it's hideous - overcrowded, queues to get in etc. Some things just lose their charm when they end up in Time Out, sadly.

    once you've had a look at the nice view there isn't a lot to keep you.

    The White Horse is my local now! And I LOVE the Sunday roast - slowly working my way through all the options. Cracking pint of Guinness too.

  22. not only have payless rebranded as the village grocer or whatever, but they have dumped the plastic bowls of veg on the outside display for veg in wooden boxes- they have alos expanded their beer rang to a stunning level - with proper Weissbier and the usual hipster favourite Brewdog. Peckham is indeed changing
     
  23. insterts Onket still misses Peckham comment

    yeah it was payless. I guess they felt threatened by the 'General Store' next door.

    Bellenden Rd isn't proper Peckham. Was worried you were talking about the one on the High Street for a minute.

    I've spotted this re-branding. If Sam's starts doing artisan grilled meats and the greasy spoon starts offering sourdough bread, abandon all hope for Bellend Road!

    Was in Sam's last night and see that a trendy looking (all minimal paint job and seating an' that) restaurant had opened next door or is about to open. Italian by all accounts.
    Think I'll be sticking to Il Gardinio by Peckham Rye station tbh!
