If you take a look at this week's Time Out, you will in fact see a review of the Perry Hill, and quite a good one at that http://www.timeout.com/london/bars/reviews/11754.html I know it's technically in SE6 but it's still local and proof that Time Out does venture to this corner of London.


The name is not familiar - is this a reincarnation of the Two Brewers?

It is indeed. http://www.theperryhill.co.uk/

We went for sunday lunch a few weeks back and the kitchen was clearly struggling to cope with the volume of orders coming through. Willing to give it another go though but maybe on a quieter night as they've done a good job with the refurb and the quality of cooking isn't bad.

Yes, it used to be the Two Brewers.

It is probably very busy now that The Rutland has closed.

I was down Perry Hill today for the first time in quite a while.

Good Lord, what a ghastly slum it is. What's with the run of boarded-up shops, and why do so many residents like to store old mattresses and sofas in their front gardens?

I know there is a bit of a running joke on here about the neighborhoods either side of the tracks but I'm not sure I'd realised how disgusting it really now is down this road. I really can't think of anywhere else in London that is as much of a dump, except perhaps parts of Newham or somewhere like Selhurst or Thornton Heath. You'd certainly have to look hard to find somewhere.

It does pick up a bit in the middle, away from Catford and Bell Green, and in the circumstances the people behind The Perry Hill are to be commended. They are brave and I wish them every success. I wouldn't invest in a chicken shop down there.

Perhaps they had half an eye on the streets immediately behind them which, if I recall correctly, are the most expensive in SE23.

Went to The Perry Hill (http://http://www.theperryhill.co.uk)
before xmas and was pleasantly surprised. The place has been done out very nicely inside & the menu was interesting and well executed. Prices not a lot different to the others but definitely worth a trip if you want alternatives to DA, Dolphin and Lordship Lane.

Hill Top
Do I take it you do not like Perry Hill. You certainly do not hold back. Worse place in London except Newham and Selhurst.
I am guessing you are not widely travelled in Londinium. Edmonston for one is far worse, how about Tottenham , Hayes ( M ) just to name a few.
Rutland uses to be a great pub , real shame it is no longer operating.

We went there on my birthday in October. The service was very good & friendly, the food also pretty good but either a) it was a little too rich or b) we ate too much.

Some relations of my partner's (great uncle & aunt??) ran the Two Brewers in the 50s & 60s. I bet they didn't do fillets of sea bass on a bed of pesto mash etc. Laugh

The Perry Hill does one of the best Sunday roasts in the area.

I went a couple of weekends ago and was pleased to see a local business full of customers. It did mean waiting over an hour for a table but the food quality was worth the wait, and we'll make sure to book next time.

Sounds great.
As there is a wait for a table can you reserve before or on arrival or is it a mad dash when someone leaves.

Someone informed me the good old Rutland over the road up for let or sale as a pub.
This used to be a really great pub with some of the best beers in the neighbourhood.

We have dinner there before Christmas and it was very good.

On the way out, I had a look at the seated area in the garden and its really big.
