Park Road Kitchen has announced it’s closed for good. Real shame, people just didn’t use it - the quiet end of Northcote Road is getting ever quieter!

Shame I like PRK but also maybe they have too many in close proximity, though there are more empty shops, and those that want out, at that end than I can ever remember.
Masterchef finalist, why not let me cook for all your special occasions!? :D

We really liked parkroad kitchen at the beginning and had high hopes it’ll get close to a frenc traiteur with main courses changing regularly. But they kept the same menu for months on end so we lost interest. Might have been the same for other customers. They could have kept the rotisserie concept but added one different main course once a week and different vegetables every three days or so.

No more banks or Estate agents is the consensus!
I'd love a great sushi place or a "classy" lebanese restaurant!

The restaurant 'Fixed' has closed down. I have to admit I never went there so I don't know if it will be missed or not? The former Cluttons site is going to be a financial services company, the nature of which I don't know, and whose name I've forgotten, sorry.

Oh no, that's a shame. It was excellent value for money, and the staff were always friendly and helpful.

I agree that Roxy’s Does amazing steak! I tended to not notice it but a friend suggested it and it was the best meal i’d had in a long time! Plus sticking with that side of the traffic lights finally a Pret is opening which although a chain means there’s more choice for a sandwich to grab in your lunch break!

Draft House have just been taken over by Brew Dog, so expect the one on Northcote Road will change to a Brew Dog. Although there is already one on Battersea Rise, so maybe they won't keep both sites.

I am really pleased with the Pret opening just off Northcote Road, it’s nice, bright and spacious with loads of room to come with a buggy and lots of high chairs.

Are there any more upcoming openings / developments on Northcote Road? I see Wallace Cotton has opened and also a kitchen shop. Looks like the site where Northcut was has been sold, any idea of plans for it?

I still think we could use a good (meaning one with a wide selection of stuff) DIY shop like Robert Dyas, and a good, well priced children’s clothes shop like H&M kids or Next kids!

I second a recent poster - I would also love a good quality sushi place and middle eastern! Both the places on Battersea Rise that sell this type of food are not that inspiring (I don’t mean BabaBoom - they are great, but always super crowded, so clearly there is a huge market for upmarket kebabs!)

I agree Szerma!

Prets are by far my favourite chain - for both coffee and service.

Couple of years ago there was a Costa on the site with the rudest manager you could (not) wish for...their front store used to grate and stick half open and I was walking out with my coffee when the the door jolted and stuck - causing me to drop my coffee on their mat.

The manager saw this and when I returned to get another cup he didn't offer a free replacement despite the door being like that for months so I paid and left (I didn't ask or demand a replacement being lily livered in such things but I was very disapointed none the less and confirmed my beleif that Costa staff seem to be less freindly generally)

Also the Starbucks has closed on the opposite side of St John's Road has closed which suits me fine - being my least favourite coffee chain! :D

I saw this morning that the same people that make the sushi in Sainsburys Southside (Sushi Daily) are opening a counter in Waitrose on St Johns Road. Although you cant sit down and eat in, I think this sushi is fabulous quality for a takeaway - (better than Itsu). I'm chuffed.

Cath Kidson gone too. Northcote Road is getting very quiet at the far end. Maybe the site will take a much needed Little Waitrose or similar?
