Event description


Bringing hand-made, chef-concocted rural Syrian delicacies to Good Hope Café on Friday evenings, as part of our regular pop-up residency.

If you'd like to reserve a table & pay on the night instead, just shoot us an email on Have a browse of our menu and get thinking about which mains you like the look of now.


What's the vibe like?

A great date spot - if you like a whimsical, dreamy, off-the-wall feel. We don't just attract couples though - a mixed bag of foodies young and old flock in from across South London and beyond.

When you arrive, we'll ask you if you'd like to have a private table or sit with other guests supper-club style - on most nights, there's plenty of both to choose from.

Do we select our dishes?

Everyone eats our four course menu, which includes all three fresh meze dishes, soup, one main dish, dessert and a selection of fresh teas. Choose your main dish when booking to make sure we have what you want. Pick your dessert on the night. If you end up changing your mind about your choice of main, we can normally accommodate. If you drop by after 9.30pm, we can serve dishes à la carte if we have space and ingredients left - give us a call on 07884 936910 if you're unsure whether to venture out.

Can we bring kids?

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

And drink?

We sell 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. The selection of fresh teas is part of the menu.

Do you do take away?

Yes we do! Booking is only for sit-down guests - so if you're up for takeaway, just turn up on the night. Get in touch if you're more than six, or you want your order ready super quick, via social media, or on 07884936910.

Is it halal?

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

What about allergies?

All our nut, dairy, sesame 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. Please also mention latex allergies, as we sometimes use latex gloves when serving.

Our meze, soup and mains are all gluten free - our tabouleh recipe is also gluten free - as we prefer to make it with copious amounts of pomegranate and spring onion, and miss out the grains. Only the optional bread base with the "Yakhaneh", the croutons or fatoosh we serve with our soup, Shurbat Adas and the "Jiljil wa Hab Ruman" dessert contain gluten. Meze is served with optional bread. Shoot us a message before you come if you'd like your meze served with gluten free crackers.

Do I have to print my ticket?

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

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

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

When shall we turn up?

Don't worry about turning up a little (i.e. less than 1/2 hr) late for your booking - but bear in mind that you may need to wait if you turn up early. It'd be great if you could let us know by text or email if you think you'll be later than 1/2 hour late. For general questions in the run up to the night call the chef on 07455172017 or drop us a line at

I want to taste the meze, but don't know if I can manage a whole meal..

Drop by any time from 9.30 - if we have space, we can grab you a table and you can while the evening away over wine, beer or juice and meze. All three meze dishes plus as much bread as you need are £10 a head...


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.

I just realised I can't make it on the night I booked for..

No problem, just shoot us an email and we can book you in for another time.
