Review on Brunswick House Cafe
Located on Vauxhall roundabout, a short walk from the tube and railway stations, critically acclaimed Brunswick House Cafe is housed in a single storey building built around 1900 as a meeting place, concert and lecture hall for the members of the local railway union. The cafe is set next to a Georgian town house originally built for the Duke of Brunswick in 1758, home to the well established Lassco, a salvage company for architectural antiques, and curiosities. This explains the eclectic and colourful décor featuring reclaimed furniture, an assortment of hanging light fittings, mirrors, old posters and various other antiquarian pieces displayed on the stage and around the room, most of which are for sale.
The owner of this venture is Jackson Boxer, whose family have a background in the hospitality industry, his father runs Italo a grocery store, his partner is his brother Frank who runs the successful pop up restaurant Frank's Café & Campari Bar at the top of a multi-storey car park in Peckham and his grandmother is Arabella Boxer, a well respected cookery writer.
The concise menu changes daily with produce sourced locally and seasonal ingredients that might kick off with raw sea trout, samphire and soda bread. Main courses offer dishes such as pollock, clams, kohirabi and potatoes or maybe pork neck, pickled rhubarb, celeriac and chervil. To finish there are desserts in the shape of passionfruit posset served with shortbread or apple tart, toffee apple and custard. There's a carefully selected wine list to accompany the menu together with expertly crafted cocktails.
