Review: brunch at The Commercial pub, Herne Hill

The Commercial pub Herne Hill brunch

The Commercial, Herne Hill

A fully booked Brockwell Park Lido Cafe meant that The Commercial was our second option for brunch on a sunny Saturday. Usually an ideal pit-stop for Sunday lunch in-between pottering around the market, their early doors food option isn’t to be sniffed at.

Doors open around 11am and while it’s empty, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get a table if you’re in the area and feeling spontaneous (which is quite refreshing, really. It’s maddening when you have to plan ahead all. the. time.).

The brunch menu is varied enough to suit all tastes, although it really is a meat lover’s heaven – you even get black pudding with the full English.

The showstopper has to be the Breakfast of Champions, served in a huge frying pan for two people (or, you know, one super hungry person). The pan is filled with fried eggs, sausages, bacon, bubble and squeak, black pudding ‘cheeky’ beans (a new one on us, they tasted like regular beans but never mind) and tomatoes.

Other highlights included Eggs Royale and their Eggy Bread with Grilled Bacon and Syrup – you’ll be fed and watered for around £10 – not too shabby. Empty plates all round from us.

Thoughts please!
