A night out in Camberwell on Saturday; drinks at The Castle (very relaxing, I like it there) and post-drinks curry at Safa (I’d say it’s the best in Camberwell, but since I moved back here I haven’t bothered comparing it with any rivals). On the way home we fancied getting a drink to take with us, but every single off-license was closed. At 11pm. A pre-Christmas booze crackdown?
On Sunday we crossed over into SE15 for brunch at The Peckham Experiment (168 Bellenden Road, SE15 4BW). It’s small and was full, but we got our table. I’d been warned that service was a little slow because of the size of the kitchen, and true it took a little while for our food to arrive, but it was decent-sized, reasonably-priced and tasty. My first choice was unavailable so we both had sausage and mash; it was good. I’d hesitate to recommend it for an important meal (say, an anniversary), but if you’re in the area and you’re hungry it ticks all the right boxes.
