Rarebit – Review 

Rarebit is an all-day neighbourhood kitchen in the heart of Elephant & Castles’s new bustling food area Elephant park. It’s the perfect spot for brunch or an evening dinner with friends, family or colleagues. They are also dog friendly which is a huge plus.

Offering 55 covers inside and 16 on the terrace, RAREBIT is a celebration of modern British food that focuses on local ingredients serving coffee from Climpson & Sons, bread and pastries from Flor, fresh produce from Natoora, cheeses from Neal’s Yard Dairy and charcuterie from London Smoke & Cure. The menu features rare breed meats and sustainable fish as well as plentiful veggie and vegan options. So, let’s talk about the food.

I headed in on a Sunday for the daytime brunch menu and ordered a tantalising selection of food including a well-spiced Shakshouka, a must-have slice of rarebit on toast and the English breakfast… because you can never have enough food.

The Shakshouka was delicious, full of flavour and richness, and the rarebit itself was exactly what I was after. Being Welsh, I hold this staple to a high regard and it hit the spot. The English Breakfast was pretty good, the sausages were my favourite part, however, the portion could have been slightly more generous and you’d want to order something extra to go with it to be full.

The coffee was excellent though, which I’d expect from Climpson & Sons who’ve got 20 years of glorious coffee firmly under their belts. The lunch menu was changing and sadly the roasts weren’t an option at the time, but I did speak to the manager and am pleased to here that these will be coming back because they were apparently a sellout.

The dinner menu (6pm-9.30 pm) looks far more expansive with offerings including scallop and ‘nduja mac and cheese with crab bisque, hearty Pork belly, crackling, caramelised apple, cauliflower purée and red wine jus.

I’ll absolutely be coming by to see how the vibe of RAREBIT changes from day to night as the day vibe was very trendy, laid back and family-friendly, but if you’re a local this is the perfect morning hotspot for breakfast, brunch and amazing coffee!

Feel like splashing out? For the ultimate weekend treat, the restaurant provides a generously priced combo of a glass of Deveaux Grande Réserve Champagne, half a slice of house rarebit, and your choice of any brunch dish for just £25.
