Cattle Grid the new mystery restaurant in Earlsfield?

Postby Caferacer » Thu Jul 24, 2014 10:11 am

Now Battersea Rise has lost it's Cattle Grid.


It seems to have resurfaced in Earlsfield using those odd tunnels that form part of Earlsfield station...

...this was previously a electric motor rewinding shop.

Yes how times have changed!

The old shop had the most boring window display in London, it consisted of ;

a dirty reconditioned electric motor

two long dead flies and

er... that's it.

Despite rumours that Pret or St*rb&cks were about to move in I saw a Land Rover painted in Cattle Grid livery offloading some supplies there...

It's the most obvious clue yet since they have take a-g-e-s to refit the place.

Can't say I was too much of a fan of Cattle Grid. It was alright but I'd always go to GBK for my burgers. Earlsfield the new Northcote Road then? ;)

Well it's getting there I suppose!

"The Beach" ie the stretch between Earlsfield Station and (roughly) Isis Street has a Carluccio's , Ben's Canteen, Caffe Nero, a Korean, Indian and Chinese Resteraunt, Bar 366 , Mels and the Halfway House Pub. The Wandle Pub seems to be a 'happening' place (oh dear does that phrase age me? - I should have wrote 'groovy' place ).

Plus of course every estate agent you could name...

When I came here 15 years ago all that seemed to be there was the Ford Escort Repair Centre (permanently boarded up ) and tons and tons of pine shops...

With regards the Cattle Grid - I'm not too keen on steak houses myself and neither my wife of kids eat red meat... still a chicken burger might do the job! :D

Not such a mystery - it's a soon to be opened pub called The Earlsfield. Owned by the Cattle Grid people. They have a twitter feed https://twitter.com/Earlsfield_pub

AH... thanks for that - now that is a good idea.

The building is a fantastic shape with beautiful windows on some sides , it would make an excellent pub ... good one! :D
