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).

Essex Roti Hut, Rainham, London RM13

Evening all!

This week's featured article is for the Essex Roti Hut in Rainham, serving Caribbean food for both locals and hungry travellers to sunny Rainham. (The average July rainfall in Rainham is just 40.7mm, well below the UK average of around 78mm, so I can legitimately call it sunny.) Be warned: the veggie ackee isn't veggie!

There are two new articles this week. The first is for the Blue Tree Kitchen, just off the South Bank near the Oxo Tower. I got my lunch there today - a sort of shredded courgette, roasted sweet potato and feta bake thing. It was ok, if a bit salty, but had enough veg in it to convince me I was eating something healthy. I can confirm this is par for the course. Secondly we have Xhauri, an Albanian restaurant in Walthamstow with an informal atmosphere and traditional dishes I would seek advice on how to pronounce.

There's an update to the article for the Great Northern Railway Tavern in Hornsey following a visit. The beer selection sounds great and there's free wifi. And the average July rainfall is a tiny 34.8mm! Let's all go to Hornsey for our summer hols!

Sabor Peruano, Elephant & Castle, London SE1

Afternoon everyone! This week's featured article is for Sabor Peruano, a small Peruvian restaurant just South of Elephant & Castle. The portions are generous and the ceviche sounds worth a punt (perhaps give the roasted corn kernels a miss though).

New on RGL are articles for Ades Cash and Carry, an African/Caribbean grocery shop in Charlton, Cafe Jasmine, a servicable greasy spoon in Sydenham, and the Essex Roti Hut in Rainham, which looks to be more architecturally durable than the word 'hut' would suggest. But then again, I can't remember the last time I saw a Pizza Hut located in an actual hut? Terminology aside, if you're in Rainham and fancy some Caribbean food, the Essex Roti Hut should do nicely.

There are a few updated pub articles too: the Prince Albert in Woolwich; the Goodman's Field Wetherspoons in Aldgate and the Phoenix in Rainham, just along from the Essex Roti Hut.
