Two new hangouts on the horizon

Brockley's bumper year of new openings looks set to continue. Gerri writes:

"The cafe on the corner of Tyrwhitt Road and Lewisham Way [which enjoyed a brief life as a pop-up furniture shop that never opened] is tantalisingly close to being finished. Builders say two to three weeks 'or maybe four'. [Typical] Decor is top notch, beyond what is required/expected to make it pleasant. Was trying to take a sneaky pic but got busted."

Meanwhile, I've just been invited to a hard hat tour of The Brookmill in St John's (65 Cranbrook Road), ahead of its opening later this month. Owned by the same pub group as The Great North Wood in West Norwood, the team have got ambitious plans to turn it into something very cool.
