Went for dinner at The Gantry on Saturday evening, and was really impressed. Brilliant food, wine and service. The venue itself is great too, with an atmospheric bar and casual dining on the ground floor, and cosy restaurant dining located downstairs. Recommend the pig cheeks,...More

This is one of the favourite local bistros of good friends of mine. And if I lived in Brockley I'd be here lots too. I loved the way the owner greeted me like an old friend when I arrived early. Great cocktail menu, superb dinner...More

Visited the gantry for Sunday roast. Food looked very impressive when it came out. The main appeal of the place though was how friendly and accommodating the staff were. Both front of house staff were friendly and understanding when we had a slight concern over...More

Buzzy and friendly place throughout. Quirky layout as I believe this was a house originally. Great selection of wine and good food

Had a really lovely meal in their garden last night. The food was genuine, generous and you could tell had been cooked thoughtfully. We sat at a cute little chess table surrounded by greenery and felt a million miles away from the weekday just been....More

Located a stones throw away from Brockley Station, The Gantry is a friendly restaurant and bar. Owned and run by a team of local residents, they are rightly proud of their European inspired seasonal menu as well as their amazing specials. The three small rooms offer the perfect setting for dining at any time of day, the conservatory being a particular local favorite. Warm and friendly staff are always on hand for recommendations or special requests. The Gantry opens early on the weekend to serve breakfast and on Sundays offers an incredible Sunday roast. The bar and terrace are great place to enjoy a cold beer but the best place on a summers day? It has to be the gorgeous secluded garden.
