In a tremendous homecoming, Kricket will return to Brixton as ‘boy done good’.

A ticket office might not seem like the most usual place for a restaurant, you’d think it’d be better as a ticket office but as we use less ticket offices and eat out more, maybe it isn’t such a bad idea.

Taking over the beautifully restored former Grade II listed ticket office which was originally part of Peckham Rye’s train station in the 1930s, Coal Rooms will be home to: a 24-seater café which transforms into a […]
