Mess nights - a message from the Brockley Mess

Tim from the Brockley Mess has been in touch with an update from the popular cafe - as ever, we're happy to pass on the message to Brockley Central readers. So here he is:

Firstly, we'd like to thank everyone for their patronage over the past couple of months. Positive comments in the cafe and on the blog have been hugely encouraging, and the less favourable ones have given us food for thought; we hope we will continue to improve.

From day one there has been a tidal wave of opinion that we should open in the evenings. We were always going to do this but didn't want to run before we could walk, so to speak.

Now that we have found our feet a bit, I am happy to announce that we will be dangling a few toes into the murky waters of evening opening. So, from now until further notice, we will be open all day until 11pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Our full opening times will now be:
Monday-Wednesday: 9am - 6pmThursday-Saturday: 9am-11pmSunday: 10am-6pm
We are offering a short, snacky evening menu featuring some of our most popular daytime dishes and some delicious new things for you to try. We have a good and very keenly-priced range of beers, wines and spirits. And we also now have music! If these late opening evenings prove to be a success, we will very likely start opening later throughout the week.
In other news, the gallery space at the back of the cafe now has a name - cueB. Over the coming months we will be exhibiting a number of different artists, and also giving the good people of Brockley the chance to see their work on the walls - more about this soon. This week the gallery changes from the excellent Thion exhibition which we have staged since opening to an exhibition by the artist Beatrice Poggio entitled Women of the Wood. Please come down this Thursday evening, 12th November, 7-9pm for the not-so-private view.
For those who don't know, we have a Facebook group and a website on the way.

And finally, a date for your diary. Please don your finest Val Doonican christmas jumper and come to our Brockley Xmess Party on Saturday 12th December.

I can't tell you exactly what we have planned yet (because I'm not entirely sure myself) but there will definitely be mulled wine, mince pies, music and merriment into the small hours.
All for now
Tim Arnold, Brockley Mess
