Sunday brunch@Toasted, Lordship Lane SE22

Toasted: 36-38 Lordship Lane, London SE22

Green & Blue – the previous shop front of toasted

At lunchtime today we had brunch@toasted who have taken over the premises previously occupied by Green & Blue in Lordship Lane, London SE22. Toasted is the latest in the Terroirs group, which includes The Green Man & French Horn, and naturally features wines from Les Caves de Pyrène. Today is the first time that toasted has been open on a Sunday. It is clearly already getting good Sunday custom as by 1pm the sausages from The Butchery had sold out as had the Chanterelles. 

We had excellent black pudding on toast with a fried egg, while celebrating Sunday with a glass of Emilio Hidalgo Sherry each – CRM had the Amontillado Fino El Tresillo (£5.50 a glass), while I took the Oloroso Seco Gobernado (£3 a glass). Although the Oloroso was fine it was clearly outclassed by the finesse and complexity of the El Tresillo. Our highly enthusiastic Spanish waiter kindly gave us a small sample of the wonderful Hidalgo's La Panesa Fino.

All the wines on the extensive list can either be drunk or the premises or bought to take away.

Will certainly be returning!

£35 to take away or £59 to drink in
