Coming soon: The Brookmill

Via the Deptford Forum, the new team in charge of Deptford boozer The Cranbrook reveal themselves. They say:

We’re super excited to announce that The Cranbrook is under new management. Undergoing a complete refurbishment and re-brand it will re-open as The Brookmill pub and kitchen in Spring 2016!

The plan is to create a relaxed, family and dog friendly pub serving great beer and classic pub dishes. At the weekends we’ll be doing brunch, Bloody Mary’s and Berocca (to nurse any foggy heads). And on Sunday’s, the roasts will be our pride and joy and take over the menu – we can’t wait for you to try them. Live entertainment, film nights and supper clubs are also in our plans.

The menu will feature the classics; braised beef & ale pie, beer battered haddock & chips and sticky toffee pudding (To. Die. For). However, with a team of chefs who’ve worked at some of London’s finest restaurants, including Terroirs and Racines, the menu wont be restricted to classic pub fayre. It’ll be free to roam in whichever direction, creating an exciting, and ever changing menu!

When it comes to the bar, sourcing the best local ales and supporting craft breweries is our mission and our passion – the stock will rotate with the best of what’s on offer. The wine racks will be full of delicious, natural and organic wines from our favourite supplier, Les Caves de Pyrene.

In time for summer, we’ll re-open the secret beer garden (a total suntrap!) for BBQ’s, beers on ice and table tennis.

We’re determined to create the ‘local’ you want, so to help us do that, we’ll be seeking your feedback, thoughts and opinions. Look out for tasting events, hardhat tours and lots more on our Twitter feed @thebrookmillpub or ‘like’ our Facebook page @thebrookmill.

To get an idea of what The Brookmill might be like, you can take a look at the Great Northwood ( in West Norwood. Nick Willoughby and his team refurbished The Great North Wood in 2013 and it’s now time for project No 2, which is really exciting!
