The history of hood

Our Story

We are an independent, friendly neighbourhood restaurant and bar in Streatham serving seasonal Modern British food accompanied by locally brewed beers and European & English wine. We aim to work with a variety of local businesses and organisations as a customer, a partner or a supporter.

Sourcing

As the very essence of our name suggests provenance and locality are really important to us. We love to tell you where we get a particular ingredient or product from whether it’s a farm in Kent, a back garden in Streatham, a brewery in Bermondsey or vineyard in Sussex! We are a young independent business and we love to work with people like ourselves.

Our food is Modern British meaning that while a lot of our dishes contain locally sourced, seasonal British ingredients we still love some flavours from around the world so don’t be surprised to see some influences from overseas as well.

Traceability of our produce is important to us and we have a provenance map on our restaurant wall so you can see where our key ingredients and drinks come from.

We have purposefully kept our lunch, brunch and dinner menus short and succinct and they include a number of gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian dishes plus we are very happy to cater for other diets. Please do enquire when you are booking a table with us or speak to your server when you come in to dine. We also do smaller, simpler dishes for children.

Our drinks list is just as important to us in terms of quality as our food. Our carefully selected offerings take time, consideration, passion and a lot of research (the really fun bit!)

We extend our ethos of locality and provenance to our drinks by sourcing all our wine from within Europe. We are really on offering wine from interesting and emerging regions alongside the classics and we are extremely proud of our extensive English wine offering.

We work with several small batch distilleries, whose spirits from which we create our signature cocktails, and we have on offer some of the best soft drinks produced here in London.

Our craft beer menu is unique and we have real fun putting it together. Our beers are typically locally brewed, hand crafted, super fresh and change on a daily basis.

All our bottled and canned drinks can be purchased at a takeaway price too – please just enquire with one the team.
