South London pub Perry Hill Pub (between Catford and Sydenham FYI) has been closed for almost two years and now, after a makeover, is set to reopen its doors and show off its new look. Husband and wife team Phil Sutton and Oonagh McCormack now run the pub and have renovated the lounge bar, lounge and large outdoor area. They also brought in Jamie Younger (who ran Palmerston in East Dulwich) to oversee the kitchen which, along with head chef Eric Grapt (formerly of the Wolseley and Hurlingham Club), created a menu that included dishes like beef shin croquettes. with horseradish, asparagus and hollandaise hake, grated pork shoulder and smoked celeriac steak, making full use of the on-site smokehouse. Lunch snacks and a Sunday roast are also on the menu when indoor dining is permitted.
There will be a diverse selection of beers at the bar, including rotating specialties, as well as artisanal perries and wine, with a separate list of bottles to go. The pub opens first for alfresco dining and drinking and with a capacity of over 250 people in the beer garden it will be one of the largest in the area.
