Food and Drink
A slice of life
When you’re living at The Pomeroy the question isn’t so much what should you do today, but rather how can you fit it all in.
From great places to eat and hang-out to one-off cultural destinations, this is an area that has so much to offer that you really are spoilt for choice.
Soak up the local bohemian vibe and visit an exhibition at either the Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art or Lewisham Arthouse. Catch a film at the independent Peckhamplex cinema where all tickets are priced at under five pounds or visit the Peckham Library in its award-winning building.
Enjoy a glass of IPA from local brewer Brick Brewery at The Copper Tap on Peckham High Street, browse the array of trendy independent boutiques in Bellenden Road where the pavement is lined with Antony Gormley-sculptured bollards, and finish with a delicious meal at The Rose Pub & Kitchen on New Cross Road.
The weekly Brockley Market features a host of local producers selling everything from freshly baked sourdough to raw dairy products and freshly caught fish. And for regular annual treats, there is the two-week- long Telegraph Hill Festival that celebrates the arts, and the popular music festival, Jam on Rye, in Peckham Rye Park.
There’s little need to seek out open spaces beyond London when you live in an area this lush and green.
From small tucked away neighbourhood commons to a large Royal park there are plenty of places to escape the daily hustle and bustle and enjoy wide open spaces and lots of fresh air.
Telegraph Hill Upper Park offers scenic hilltop views of the city and a popular skate park while Peckham Rye Park features woodland, meandering streams and a Japanese garden. The Chumleigh Gardens at the heart of Burgess Park is a renowned world garden showcasing English, Mediterranean, Asian, Oriental and Caribbean planting and of course there is Greenwich Park overlooking the River Thames, famous for its herd of red and fallow deer and Royal Observatory.
Closer to home, Hatcham Gardens is on your doorstep offering a tranquil place to enjoy a moment’s peace in the open air with just your thoughts or a book for company. Peckham Rye Park
Pip to the post
Living in a zone 2 location is a gift, with quick and easy connections into central London, west London and the City’s financial heart making this an ideal place to set up home.
The Pomeroy is located close to both Queens Road Peckham and New Cross Gate London Overground stations. While both stations provide links through east London and onto north London, the former station has access to the western branch of the line to Shepherd's Bush and beyond, while the latter station offers the link south to Crystal Palace and West Croydon.
The Docklands Light Railway is easily accessible, as is the Jubilee line, allowing a quick commute to Canary Wharf and the City.
The proposed Bakerloo line extension will run from Elephant & Castle further increasing commuting options.
Local bus routes are plentiful and lots of cycle routes makes getting around on two wheels a convenient travel option.
