Brixton Village Grill

A cheap and cheerful breakfast in trendy Brixton Village. This restaurant also serves lunch and dinner.

A Brixton institution, this bar has amazing roof terraces and serves food in the day too. You can dance the night away until the early hours when they have DJs playing.

Happy hour cocktails and a range of dishes and cuisines from all over South East Asia.


I was really impressed with this sushi restaurant just off Clapham High Street. They serve very good quality dishes made using fresh ingredients and the atmosphere is perfect for a catch up with friends or a special date night.

"The Brixton Market and the Stockwell Pry school"

January 2015


"It's very close and well-connected to central London while it is not overcrowded and chaotic. You can be in Brixton with a short walk and taste different dishes from all around the world or just enjoy strolling around Brixton Village. There are some parks nearby as well, like Kennington or Clapham Common. I love living in Stockwell."

December 2014


"I love how friendly the neighbours are and a lovely sense of community."

"In 1772 the Stockwell Ghost became a sensation. Mrs Golding reported ghostly happenings in her home that involved objects mysteriously flying around the rooms and moving by themselves. Eventually it was discovered that her servant Anna Robinson was attaching horse hair to the objects and placing them precariously on shelves, hoping to shock the old lady so that the house would be free for her to meet with her lover."
