Chorizo and hake stew at The Hyndland Fox.

Although it’s already a sleek neighbourhood filled with beautiful people, Hyndland looks set to become that little bit more foxy this week as The Hyndland Fox gears up for its official opening.

The Clarence Drive venture is the latest project from Tony Johnston, the man behind the Peckham’s delis.

In fact, we think we’re right in saying that The Hyndland Fox is on the site of the very first Peckham’s.

Extensive opening hours

Billed as a bar and restaurant, The Hyndland Fox is promising to open tomorrow and will trade from 8am to midnight seven days a week.

With a cafe menu, dinner menu, kids menu and a grab ‘n’ go selection, they are certainly covering most bases.

You can browse the menus from here but we liked the sound of the garlic and thyme baked Camembert sharing board plus the crab and spring onion omelette from the cafe menu.

On the dinner menu, the duck shepherd pie along with the hake and chorizo stew leapt out at us.

Special promos run each day. So, for example, Mondays are BYOB while Wednesdays are steak frites night.

Hand-roasted coffee

To say they take their coffee seriously is like saying that Mike Tyson could be quite handy in the ring. The coffee at the Hyndland Fox is triple certified, hand roasted in small batches and available brewed in an aeropress, chemex or filter cone.

The coffee is not the only speciality. The staff are already enthusing about the real vanilla ice cream shakes, especially the toasted marshmallow version.

The Bloody Marys also look pretty inviting.
