Our neighbourhood cafe is a place of intersection, where locals can meet residents over coffee from CRUkafe and delicious treats, such as doughnuts from Crosstown. Open to everybody it serves tasty Zig Zag teas as well as organic cold pressed juices, it is a spot to spend a minute and take a while.
Our first floor lounge captures the old world glamour and beauty of the Victorian-era building. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, our menus are a celebration of influences and techniques from around the world from Head Chef Sara Lewis. The all day menu includes a British charcuterie selection from cured meat specialists Cannon & Cannon of Borough Market, Dahl with a choice of grilled mackerel or chicken and more small plates such as the cauliflower falafel with harissa labneh, and the soy glazed crispy pork belly and chilli miso. In addition, the ultimate wild mushroom and Dolcelatte toastie, mug of soup with crusty bread courtesy of Bread Ahead and warm milk and cookies.
The cocktail offering is an exciting collaboration with some of the best cocktail bars from around the world, featuring drinks exclusively loaned to The Pilgrm, but made here in London. The Silvertone by Chad Solomon of Midnight Rambler in Dallas is made with gin, vermouth and house orange bitters, whilst the Reverse Martinez by Vassillis Kyritsis and Nikos Bakoulis of The Clumsies bar in Athens is a delicate twist on a classic cocktail made with rose vermouth, gin, Maraschino liqueur, and bitters.
Residing in the more bohemian and historic side of the area.

Wined, dined, thoroughly intertwined
Wine, like many of the things we hold dear, offers much provenance. Stories and folklore around its culture exist in part due to the difficulty of bottling it, but also how each bottle is a reflection of a place in time.

Established by three friends back in 2013, adopting a 100% organic and ethical practice, Cru always seek to make their packaging as environmental friendly as possible. Read on
