If Hood is in your hood, then it needs no introduction; if you’re new to Streatham Hill, don’t worry – it’s more than a local shop for local people. There is something for you here on this modern British menu, whatever your needs. Weekend hangover? You need the 'Dirty Dexter'; an English muffin smothered with over-easy eggs, melted cheese and beer-battered onion rings. Washed down with a Bloody Mary, of course. Light lunch? Try the Hood salad, fresh from the market, or Mozzarella sourced from Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire. Yes, you read that right; Mozzarella from Hampshire. Dinner at the Hood makes you feel like one of the gang; a mural on the wall lists the individual names of those who helped to kick-start the restaurant back in 2015. You'll also end up knowing a lot about what’s on your plate; independent, sustainable sourcing is at the heart of Hood’s ethos. Your chicken is practically exotic – from Norfolk! – while your coffee was roasted down the road in West Norwood, and your beer is as local as can be: St.Reatham, for example, courtesy of the Inkspot Brewery. Make like the Streatham natives: head to Hood.
