Little Nan's - Forest Hill and Deptford

Little Nan’s Bar is a little different to the other venues but no less exciting.

Back in 2013 a man called Tristan gathered all of his nan’s ornaments, furniture and heirlooms and opened a bar in a tiny back room of a nightclub just off Deptford High Street.

In 2014, Tristan’s mum came along to create Little Nan’s Afternoon Tea, where all bakes and cakes are vintage recipes featuring an 89-year-old recipe for raspberry jam.

Vintage Lindy Lou - Crayford

Situated beside the River Cray, you can look out over the award-winning garden while sampling delicious homemade cream teas, cake and sandwiches.
