About: This is the latest in the Brew chain and the largest to date, serving breakfast, brunch and brinner (apparently catering for a new trend of having breakfast for dinner?!) with dishes including Turkish Eggs, poached and served with hung yoghurt and hot chilli butter or Brindisa chorizo scrambled eggs on Brew’s sourdough toast. As well as this, there is also a 'normal' lunch and dinner menu with favourites including perfectly cooked burgers, dry-aged steaks and pizzas prepared in the onsite wood-fired pizza oven!

This is a fabulous, antipodean-influenced (with hints from New York and Israel too) new all-day dining experience with a great outdoor terrace to enjoy in the warmer months.

The first time we visited Brew we were sceptical – you would be about somewhere that uses the term ‘brinner’. (It means having breakfast foods at dinnertime in case you’re wondering.) But we were pleasantly surprised to find a delightful little café with appetising dishes that fused flavours from around the world, and a terrace looking out onto Clapham’s busy Northcote Road.

We were hoping to try Brew’s new ‘Hellfire pizzas’ at their newest branch in Putney, however despite what their website’s all-day menu suggests it’s only available in the evening. Our chance to scoff a pizza with curried monkfish and pickle was dashed.

Instead we ordered smoked bacon and potato croquettes, although they lacked the smoky bacon-ness. A chorizo hash was more of a stew, with layers of potato, sliced red onion and chorizo which had lurking beneath two soft-yolked eggs with hollandaise.

Smoky bacon Boston baked beans were again a tad on the bland side, but we did like the soft shell crab burger, which had a nice meaty hunk of crab fried in crispy batter and stuffed in a glazed brioche with sweet apricot chutney.

Beer nerds might want to check out their super-local Balham Black and Battersea Brownstone brews, and there are health-conscious smoothies made with spinach and spirulina. With its attractive décor and bright, large terrace filled with plants it seems to be a hit with the local ladies who lunch, who were out in force during our visit.
