Event description


Damascus Chef brings his hand-made, home-crafted autumn menu to the Good Hope on Friday evenings. Pick your main dish now:


What's the vibe like?

A great date spot - if you like a whimiscal, dreamy, off the wall feel. It's not all couples though - foodies young and old are flocking in from across South London and beyond.

Can we select specific dishes?

Everyone eats our three course sit-down menu, which includes all six fresh meze dishes, one main dish, dessert and a selection of fresh Arabic teas. Choose your main dish when booking to make sure we have what you want. Pick your dessert on the night.

Can we bring kids?

Kids are welcome - they eat the same menus as adults for half price (with smaller portions).

And drink?

We'll be selling an array of wines and beers on the night. Keep in touch with us on Twitter or Facebook, give us a call on 07884936910, or drop us an email for a drinks menu. We also serve a selection of fresh Arabic teas as part of our menu.

Do you do take away?

Yes we do! Booking is only for sitdown guests - so if you're up for takeaway, just turn up on the night. Groups of more than six - please get in touch and let us know your requirements via social media, or 07884936910.

Is it halal?

Yes, our meat is both organic and halal! Hurray! Not very easy to find, we know.

What about allergies?

All our nut, dairy, seasame and wheat-based dishes are prepared separately. That said, please give us a call on 07884936910, or email us on to discuss severe allergies before booking.

All dishes, apart from the freekeh main, the harisa dessert and optional salad served with the shish tawook and bread served with the meze, are gluten-free. We'll have gluten free crackers for the meze to hand - just ask on the night!

Do I have to print my ticket?

No, we'll have a list of bookings to hand on the night.

I want to come, but don't fancy booking just yet...

If you don't fancy booking now, you can always try your luck turning up on the night for a table.

I want to book in advance, but I don't have paypal

You can buy tickets directly from eventbrite at our alternative eventbrite page:

When shall we turn up?

We generally have seats available at 7pm, but often sell out at 9pm. With that in mind, it's fine to come earlier or later for 9pm bookings - but if you think you'll be more than 1/2 hr late for a 7pm booking, it'd be great if you could give us a call on 07884936910. For general questions in the runup to the night call the chef on 07455172017 or drop us a line at


The Good Hope doesn't have a dedicated parking area- but parking is free in the local area after 7pm.


The nearest stations are Hither Green or Ladywell (Southeastern Railways). Lewisham (DLR, Southeastern) is a brisk 15 minute walk away.
