The Brookmill Review

Top 10 things you need to know about The Brookmill:

1)  Have your Google map or sat nav ready if you’re heading to The Brookmill. It’s in deep deep South London. Even when you reach Deptford Bridge, it’s still a decent walk to the pub.

2)  You know gentrification has reached an area of London when you see Moretti served on tap at the local pub. They also have Guinness and Heineken for those who are less Bohemian.

3)  The clientele here are more likely to be millennials reading their Guardian supplements rather than lonely retirees sitting in the corner sipping on cheap Scotch.

4)  The decor is suitably inoffensive for the young, upwardly mobile crowd. Bare brick walls? Tick. Filament light bulbs? Tick. It’s the kind of pub that looks identical to your local.

5)  Another sign that you are in an upscale area is when you see sourdough penetrating the dining establishments. Although the bread here is chargrilled to a black colour - carcinogenic or not, it smells great.

6)  The burrata here is served with “aubergine caviar” (since when were little chopped vegetables called caviar?) - Burrata might not have a strong taste, but it's a winner when matched with orange and raisin dressing along with the rich-sounding caviar.

7)  Remember to come early if you want to dine at The Brookmill. It wouldn't be a surprise if they told you they were sold out of the roast chicken and sirloin early evening. Maybe you could consider becoming a vegetarian, as they do make an elegant and creamy tasty, linguini with shallot cream and wild mushrooms.

8)  They offer desserts that are fashionable with their intended target audience. The light lemon posset with passionfruit is a great palate cleanser and tastes absolutely irresistible.

9)  They run a pub quiz night every Tuesday if you want to meet like-minded locals and possibly win some great prizes. You would also need to book ahead as it tends to sell out.

10) The Brookmill rings the death knell for old working men's pubs and celebrates the birth of the gastropub for millennials.
