Catford is not an area we’ve ever covered in the four years of South London Blog, so when Tristan Scutt, the owner of the well-known Little Nan’s Bars in Deptford, Peckham and Dalston, asked us if we’d like to check out his new venture in Catford, we jumped at the chance. When you’re planning a […]
