Pedler Peckham Rye Brunch Menu
The restaurant uses seasonal ingredients, so check online for an up to date menu. On our visit, we sampled the brunch menu. Egg Dishes included Avocado with Poached Egg on St John’s Toast dressed in Lemon Pumpkin Seeds and a dash of Chilli. They also have Eggs Benedict with a choice of Smoked Salmon or Smoked Streaky Bacon. The Spinach is substituted for Kale for an earthy flavour. They have a posh Full English Breakfast with Henson’s Sausage, or you can try the Vegetarian Breakfast called The Garden with Crispy Pepper Tofu, Spiced Aubergines, Kale and more.
We decided to share two vegetarian dishes. The Green Shakshouka with Poached Eggs on Rye was one of those. The sauce comprised of Kale, Rose Harissa, Green Tomatoes, Green Peppers with Chickpeas. This was a lightly spiced dish with lovely flavours. The other dish was Wild Mushrooms with Smoked Leeks, Spinach, Thyme, Garlic and Cream on Sourdough. This was warming, creamy and filling. I enjoyed every mouthful.
Other savoury dishes included Braised Curried Pig Belly with Apricots and Roasted Cauliflower. A Fish Finger Sarnie with Tartare Sauce. Fish Pie with White Cream, Dill and Mash. Sirloin with Fried Egg, Hollandaise and French Fries. Finish with Ricotta Pancakes, Bread and Butter Croissant Pudding or a selection of British Cheeses with Quince Jelly and Crackers. They also serve Pastries, Fruit with Yoghurt and Nibbles. Egg Dishes cost £8.50-10, Savoury Dishes £7.50-17 and Desserts £5-10.50. The cocktail list is impressive, so make sure you take a look at that. They stock Little Bird Gin, and the wine selection is from the Alliance Wine Company.
Pedler Peckham Rye Interiors
I thought the interiors were pretty. The natural wood parquet floor, bistro chairs and shabby chic furniture assortment. There is a wood-panelled bar towards the front with a selection of wooden stools to perch on. This faces a bare brick wall. Towards the back, there is a large table with cushion seating and tropical wallpaper backdrop. There are a few tables and chairs outside which is handy for a sunny London day.
