Tucked away on Goldsmith Road in Peckham, you’ll find Aside a new neighbourhood joint from the team behind Old Spike Roastery, Coal Rooms, and Spike + Earl. Small but perfectly formed, Aside serves a short menu throughout the day and small plates in the evening.

Focusing on seasonal and local produce, the menu changes regularly but after working our way through most of the menu we can tell you that everything was made with love and although each dish is only listed as simply two or three core ingredients, they were big on flavour. Highlights included the Celeriac, Chestnut & Onion soup; Delica Pumpkin, Minestra Nera & Hazelnut and the perfectly cooked Venison with Jerusalem Artichoke and Plum. Dessert was also spot on – a rich chocolate torte served with figs, and if you’re more of a cheesy person they do a damn fine selection of cheeses from Jones of Brockley too.

We went expecting big things and Aside certainly delivered. It’s a great addition to Peckham and we’re heading straight back to try their Sunday roast – we hear it’s one of the best in South London!
