Negril is a Jamaican restaurant with seats inside and outside if its warm. Just up Brixton Hill with the same food you would expect from an authentic Jamaican restaurant – jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish. We had chicken (not as hot as we thought it would be but the chilli sauce certainly made up for it.) pumpkin curry (also not hot) and a chicken wrap. All homely and delicious. But there are other less traditional dishes on the menu and they cater for Vegans. As usual – one main course is enough. The last time visited we ventured into the rum and raisin bread and butter pudding – one portion and three spoons. It was certainly enough to prevent us eating for next couple of days. They have breakfast specials and a Negril platter for those who can’t make up their mind about what to choose and want to dabble.
They have no alcohol license but are happy for you to bring your work and they charge a corkage – the same price, however many drinks you bring. The choice of places to buy alcohol if you forget is pretty limited but beer is what goes best.
The interior is bare tables and old school chairs but the outside looks lovely with benches and tables. Unfortunatley the rain kept us inside but we have been past in the evening when the lights and the weather made it look very inviting. The place for a reasonable meal but it does get booked up so ring to ensure space especially at the weekend.
