Down in Deptford the food scene is going great guns - and now there's a cracking new gastropub to entice locals. The Brookmill, which opens just after the August bank holiday, is the sister pub to The Great North Wood.

For a gastropub its foodie credentials are impeccable with the kitchen headed up by chef Olly Marlowe who was previously sous chef at the Michelin-starred The Glasshouse and Chez Bruce.

Olly's menu sounds pretty amazing with sample dishes like:

  • Cauliflower tempura with raisin raita, curried quail eggs, watercress and almonds
  • Ham hock and gruyere pie with onion purée and roasting juices
  • Roast cornish cod with ‘nduja risotto, salted almonds, aioli and pecorino
  • Cherry and frangipane croustade with vanilla ice cream

There's all manner of local beer and wine on offer - craft beer from Brockley Brewery, The Kernel Brewery and Brick Brewery with natural and organic wines from Davenport Vineyards in East Sussex. Coffee is courtesy of local roastery, Volcano Coffee.

The Brookmill opens Tuesday 30th August 2016 at 65 Cranbrook Road, London SE8 4EJ. Telephone 020 8333 0899. Opening times will be Monday-Thursday 12pm-11pm; Friday 12pm-12am; Saturday 10am-12am and Sunday 10am-11pm with Sunday Lunch served from midday. Keep up with their news on Twitter @thebrookmillpub
