Down the road from the hustle and bustle of Peckham Rye’s high street lies Pedler, new to 2015 and a pretty addition to the area. Decor wise, think modern-meets-shabby chic: a turquoise wooden bar decked out with vintage crockery, exposed brick walls flanked with glass cabinets, and all the while music is pumping and the food and drinks are in full flow.
We went for Sunday lunch. The menu is minimal and a little at odds with each other. The starters are quite fancy – think broccoli with a pomegranate yoghurt dressing, scallops etc – but the mains are pretty standard Sunday roast fare.
Alongside a couple of brunch offerings they had Dr Pepper glazed ham, beef with a sugar rub and an orange glazed chicken to share. However their menu is always changing so it’s worth keeping an eye on what they’ve got to offer each month.
We opted for the beef and ham, and the meat was served in generous sharing bowls with roasties, veggies and enormous Yorkshire puds. Arguably more grub than you’d normally fit onto a typical plate serving. Impressive for our greedy appetites.
Their cocktail menu is their piece de resistance in terms of booze, with gin being their main spirit, but they have a good wine list for those otherwise inclined.
Fit to burst, we could only manage to share one dessert – the chocolate brownie sundae. We’ll let the picture do the talking for this one.
Two starters, two mains, one dessert and three drinks came to £65 without service charge. It fixed our Sunday cravings, that’s for sure.
