How Much?

A sleepy village called Nunhead lies snuggly nestled in-between Peckham and East Dulwich. While it may be off the beaten track – there’s an exceptionally good reason to take a detour here. Not just for Nunhead’s quaintness and picturesque spots to take a stroll. One reason surpassing all these things: The Habit – a modern British bistro worth the visit from the furthest reaches of London alone.

This crowd-pleasing Nunhead brunch spot has recently opened for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. Head Chef and co-owner John Holland and Dan Benjamins have rustled up a simple and sleek seasonal menu to be enjoyed under The Habit’s inviting amber lighting, contemporary artwork and hanging plants.

For starters, the spiced Scotch egg – with shredded pumpkin inside – was an ingeniously heavenly pairing. Made all the more sublime by the contrast of crunchy shell with runny yolk. The crispy but melt-in-mouth duck confit main – with rich star-anise braised red cabbage, buttery mash and chard – was flawlessly flavoured; the 30 day aged rib eye steak, with bone marrow was cooked to perfection, with skin-on fries deliciously seasoned with chilli and parsley. While the immensely comforting warm Habit apple pie with cinnamon cream proved spot-on, sumptuously sweet. Factor in a selection of fruity and citrusy world wines, a super accommodating and friendly owner (Dan) and a smooth playlist – 10/10 all around.
