Parks Edge Bar and Kitchen (PEBK) is nestled on the edge of our community-loved Brockwell Park (like what they did there!). It’s a place to sit back, enjoy British food with a modern twist and delve into an impressive collection of wines from UK shores.
We’d been chatting with co-owner and can we say very personable Claudia about the restaurant and jumped at the chance to go savour their wares…
#SELondonBlog tells you more
The team at PEBK are very welcoming and teamed with lots of knowledge; from where the wines are sourced, to tips on how a Park’s Edge Whiskey Sour is shaken, to the ingredients of the dishes on offer. We enjoyed chatting with Claudia and the team about the food and wine menus, it made the visit more of an experience than a dinnertime treat.
PEKB has five menus to choose from, we opted for the A La Carte.
For starters I had the Duck and Waffle, with truffle cream, maple and confit yolk – a melt in your mouth meaty dream, the duck was expertly cooked and the cream and confit yolk a perfect accompaniment. My feasting partner enjoyed the Hispi Cabbage with mussels, wild garlic and cider. Fresh, warm and delicious.
From the large plates, we dined on the Grilled Onglet, served with a side of mac and cheese, black beans and jalapenos. Both steaks were medium cooked, great taste, a good cut.
The meal was sweetly rounded off with the Parsnip Coffee Mouse and Grapefruit and Black Pepper Meringue. Both quite different deserts to what we’d normally choose, the parsnip tastes nicer than it sounds. and the meringue – not enough in the bowl for my liking.
All the meat served at PEBK is sourced from William Rose Butchers in Dulwich. As a fresh food kitchen, they source and support independent British farms and local producers. Do let PEBK know if you have any food allergens. I am on a FODMAP diet and the chefs kindly catered and chose appropriate items for me to eat so I was very grateful. Their wine list offers select wines from around the world and they champion British wines from vineyards in the south-east and south-west of England.
Parks Edge has something to suit all tastes; a modern, trendy interior twist with quirky trinkets and floor to ceiling windows offering a fabulous view of the park. Seating options are offered in the restaurant lounge where you can enjoy the al la carte menu, enjoy the cocktail and bar menu at the sit up bar, or, if all you wanna do is chill, opt for the wine list and Chesterfield, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Whats cool: the teams’ knowledge of cocktail making and the wine menu. They also serve local brewery brews – thumbs up. It is an eclectic mix of decor and serves to cater a variety of tastes, the food speak for itself.
