It’s finally time to reveal the results! After a few weeks of voting, narrowing down of the list, and the big push in the last week for our shortlist, we are happy to announce that Agile Rabbit has been voted the favourite restaurant in Brixton 2018 by our followers. Here’s a link to its website.
Well congratulations are due, although it’s many years since we last wrote about Agile Rabbit – it was actually 2012 – but you can still check out our review of the place here. Surprisingly current prices seem much the same. However, it did figure little more than a year ago in our comparative review of home delivery pizzas and came in as one of our two top scorers – see here.
Now one of the longest running eateries in Brixton Village, it’s notable for also selling slices of pizza, making it the go-to place for a lunchtime snack. There’s also weekly jazz sessions. A recent development is the opening of a second branch in Herne Hill, opposite the station. But there’s still a commitment to Brixton, which is regarded as the soul of the business.
When we found out it was the winner we decided it deserved another look. We are pleased to report that it is a worthy favourite. It’s not a place for fine dining of course, but if you want simple straight-forward pizzas, at a reasonable price, this is as good as any.
We chose, the Aoca – anchovies, olives, capers and aubergine and the other
– almost inevitably – a Pepperoni. For me this had a bit too much cheese, but I guess for many this is not really a criticism.
These are seriously good 12 inch pizzas, with the all-important crispy base, making it easy to eat by hand. We would have had enough each with just one, but we were hungry, with eyes bigger than our stomachs. So the fridge has pieces destined for today’s lunch.
We washed the pizzas down with Brixton ale currently on draught. The total cost, including 10% service that we were assured all goes to the excellent staff, was under £30 (sorry, I’ve lost the receipt).
