The Time Out Guide to Brockley: "Brunch, booze and a 1950s ballroom"

In London you really feel that the world is someone else’s oyster. Whether it’s an A-list star on stage in the West End I can’t get tickets for, a Michelin-starred restaurant laughing contemptuously at my attempt to make a reservation or a nightclub with guest list admittance only, London has it all.
The Daily Mash

The Time Out guide to Brockley, curated with contributions from BC readers and printed earlier this week, is now online, the publisher having bravely eschewed the "digital first" mantra.

The guide itself is fine - flattering, but a little 2012, with the Brockley Brewery the only recent arrival to get a name-check. The Rivoli gets its obligatory 'you'll never guess what' mention.

Here you go.

On Mr. Lawrence:
Next door is its impressive wine merchant operation, so you can keep the good French vibes going chez vous

Do you think someone should tell them that they're about 18 months too late?

Ironically Time Out reviewed The London Beer Dispensary which occupies what they describe as half of Mr Lawrence, quite recently.d

Haha... Rookie error, they name check a place that closed down 18 months ago to provide space for a place they reviewed only recently... Do you think anyone actually came to Brockley before they actually published this?

The author was someone who used to live in Brockley. They may have assumed that nothing had changed since last they left. In which case, don't bother asking readers for up-to-date suggestions in advance.

No correction that I can see in this week's edition. Doesn't do their reputation - what is left of it - much good.
