Looks like the old door shop/fish mongers is finally becoming g something else. This morning a new business called Pantry followed me on Instagram (@pantry_foresthill) - looks like they’re opening in April. Seems to be coffee/deli type stuff. Seems like a great spot for this kind of thing - good luck to them! Does anyone know any more?
Link so others can see what they have put on the line. Looks like they got the keys 2 days ago.
Very excited to welcome them and see some buzz to this side of the station!
Looks like it is going to be painted a shade of royal blue judging by the paint samples outside:
Planning permission (DC/20/119590) for remodelling of the two flats above was also granted on Feb 5th, so I expect lots of work on that corner soon.
Yes that’s us!
I guess in a nutshell we are going to be gormet grocers, speciality coffee, baked goods, provisions, sundries and all round treats.
Will be opening April 2021, fingers crossed
It’s good to hear a new business is opening up on the Perry Vale side of Forest Hill.
Woohoo! Welcome! I live over the road and have been waiting hopefully for someone to take over this site. Can’t wait to pop in and sample all of the above!
Can’t wait! Hope you are settling in OK. Looking forward to visiting when you open!
Good news, wishing you all the best!
Thank you so much!
Thank you so much! Look forward to meeting you
Thank yo so much! Look formward to meeting you
Very exciting! Welcome!
I guess the pants must fall under ‘provisions’.
Good luck! Looking forward to trying your coffee etc when I start heading back in to work in April!
Looks like they are opened early, with a bit of a queue and coffee & pastries selling fast:
Best of luck @pantry!
Thank you so much!
We had a little soft opening that went so well we had to call it a day in order to open tomorrow! Hastily placing orders as we speak.
Seven days a week from tomorrow
Went here today and got a lovely spinach and ricotta pastry. Recommend.
This is a really nice friendly shop, with a stack of pastries I’d like to try and good coffee too. Despite the sign only having prices for black or white coffee, they do a tasty flat white which is better than most in SE23, possibly among the top 3 for coffee in the area
They also have lots of other interesting products too and some very fresh looking fruit and veg:
Great to see a business like this take up a place on the other side of the tracks, definitely worth a visit.
