Wine and tapas chain transforms former hotel with new Peckham site

A London tapas and wine chain has announced that it is launching its largest ever site as it expands into Peckham.

The Tapas Room, founded in Tooting, is set to launch its new Peckham site in May, its fifth in the capital.

The new site is located in the old Crown Hotel on Peckham High Street, and is the largest in the company’s repertoire, with a large dining space and a dedicated bar downstairs.

The chain’s four other sites span Tooting, Deptford, Brixton and Battersea, with the latter two being opened last year during the pandemic.

Paul Belcher, founder of The Tapas Room, commented: “We have been eyeing up an opening in Peckham for a while, we know a lot of our customers from the other sites live around the area and we wanted to bring The Tapas Room to a brand new pocket of London, and one that still has that local feel to it.

“Our aim for Peckham is an accessible, informal restaurant, where people can easily learn about wine, try delicious food, and enjoy a bit of Spain in South London.”

Max Delaney, manager at the Peckham site, added: “Our aim for the wine at The Tapas Room has always been to showcase more of Spanish wine than meets the eye, we serve the ever popular Rioja and Ribera del Duro, but if you want to branch out we can select 5 or 6 others than would really impress you.”
