Browns of Brockley, London SE4

Evening all!

This week's featured article is for Browns of Brockley, a small cafe that is situated, funnily enough, in Brockley. Right by the station, in fact! If you're not a regular to Brockley, then Browns is likely to have had at least one refurb since you last visited if not more. They also don't take cash at all - no risk of getting a 1 Euro cent coin back instead of a penny.

There's an update for Cafe Adagio in Addiscombe where our correspondent enjoyed the homity pie, but can a homity pie ever be a true pie if it doesn't have a lid? (NB I advise caution before entering the #piedebatezone.)

After last week's pub update deluge, there's yet more news! It's all change in Stratford for the Langthorne pub, which is now called the Abbey Tap, while the Vauxhall Griffin has been renamed to the Griffin Belle. We have one reopening, the Case Is Altered in Harrow Weald, but on the closures list we have the Phoenix in Rainham (hopefully only temporarily), the Yardbird in the shopping centre by Hammersmith station (where will Eric Clapton get a pint of Greene King IPA now??), the Grapes in Sutton (Wetherspoons fans in Sutton will have to be content with the Moon on the Hill instead) and finally the Drunken Monkey in Shoreditch, which is to become the Goose Island Brewpub. If I had to choose between having an inebriated monkey or an inebriated goose in the pub with me, I think I would go with the goose (potentially more violent, but easier to catch).
