Food & Drink

Our food menu focuses of fresh, local ingredients inspired by the flavours and people of South West London. All scratch-cooked, with the best ingredients we can source. From breakfast and brunch, to social bar snacks and Sunday roasts we have it covered. Our small plates are perfect to share or sample while propping up the bar alongside our revolving craft beer. Breakfast and Brunch feature sourdough topped with poached eggs, avocado, home smoked bacon and our own hot sauce. Lunch and suppers can be a quick scrumptious bite like our Galloway Beef Burger or be a touch more adventurous and try our signature Goat Curry. Sundays are all about the Roast served with midday with lashings of trimmings and gravy, perfect alongside our Bloody Marys.

Our cocktail menu takes classics and gives them an Exhibit twist with home made syrups and infusions. Favourite beer brands are served alongside revolving craft beer from South London The Kernel Brewery. Our beautiful wine list features wine for every mood, big bold reds, light easy drinking whites, bubbles galore and pretty pinks for long summer days on the balcony.
