Canton to open this week!

Great news that the Canton will open officially on Thursday 18 February but thirsty locals are welcome to come down on the Wednesday (17 February) night and have a drink. It sounds like it could become a cracking local. Here’s a few words from the team running the pub:

Hello everyone, I’m Charlie, part of the team that has taken over the Canton Arms.

As a Stockwell resident myself I know how much the community needs a quality pub…We want this pub to be accessible to the whole community and whilst bringing high quality ale, food and wine we will do our best to keep the prices down without giving it away!

Servicing the locals with informal dining will be imperative to us as will tempting people from far and wide once a reputation has been established as a dining destination. However… this should be a local pub of old. We want to be the caring, providing, hub of the community and we can be as two partners are already Stockwell residents… We feel that the Gastropub has slightly had its day, so we would like to reinvent the traditional British alehouse. The Canton Arms will have that different angle in that you will be welcome there to simply to drink or to eat. Either way you will know you will be there for the exceptional quality of both.

Dining
The lunchtime menu will be designed to be fast to accommodate those with a short lunch break. A daily substantial braise will be on offer alongside such things as bowls of soups, assorted toasted sandwiches, omelettes and kippers, cured and preserved meats. The evening menu will evolve from lunch but with the addition of dishes prepared to order e.g. Burgers, risottos and stews. Also, large dishes that everyone at the table can share will be available, e.g. braised shoulders of lamb for four or whole baked fish for two

Hope to see you all soon, please do come and introduce yourselves to myself or Trish (Chef / owner).

Welcome back to the Canton!
