Launching this August, Canova Hall will breathe new air into one of Brixton’s most commemorated buildings on 250 Ferndale Road, SW9 8BQ. Celebrating one of London’s most exciting areas this opening will be honouring the provenance of what used to be the beloved worker’s hall of Britain’s first department store Le Bon Marché across the road. Canova Hall and its eclectic all-day and late-night offering welcomes in locals and all those visiting the neighbourhood to enjoy, relax and indulge as the buzz, utility and grandeur of a timeless old market canteen sets the tone.
All day and night the food is centred on natural fuel with an authentic wood oven imported from Modena, Italy, delivering quality, simple food. Everything on the menu is fresh, from their 48 hour fermented pizza dough to their homemade pastas, both made every day in the restaurant.They use the best ingredients they can, cooking from scratch and focusing on each dish delivering 12/10 flavour. From their House Tagliatelle, with stracciatella, pink peppercorns and gremolata to Smokey Rigatoni with smoked acrmoza, pistachio pesto and rosemary. They are bringing the an array of pizzas from their sister bar Martello Hall in Hackney, including their best sellers Rock Star Margherita and Smokey Bandit alongside some new pizzas like The Hot Don with ‘nduja, finocchiona, pickled chillies, hot red pesto and oregano. Evenings at Canova Hall mirror Brixton’s life and soul as cocktail trolleys offer gin and all the accompaniments for making your own drinks. If you'd prefer to be waited on you can ‘Book a Bartender’ and they will conjure up a mix of creative cocktails for you at your table as young London DJ’s and live bands play music into the early hours. Designed by Red Deer with a strong influence on the building’s history, utilitarian Edwardian detailing and indications of faded Art Deco frame a blue collar bustle met with inspirations of the world’s most authentic food halls and markets; San Telmo in Buenos Aires, Mercado San Miguel in Madrid and the Boqueria of Barcelona. The venue’s narrative compliments the day-time, relaxed workspace environment offering hot-desking, fast Wi-Fi and great coffee.
The team’s love of gin has by no means been diminished - having perfected their distilling skills with their on-site gin distillery ‘Nicola’ at Martello Hall, they are going bigger and better at Brixton with a new bespoke American still called ‘Grace’. Those looking to take Canova Hall’s distinctive gin flavours home will be able to do so with small batches of both the Canova Gin and Martello Gin being sold at both sites.
Open 7 days a week from early morning to 1am (Friday and Saturday), Canova Hall will cater to your whole day. Be it the wage earners hot-desking with the bottomless coffee flowing or the late night revelers sipping on cocktails whilst dancing to deep dug vinyl gems, Canova Hall is always there for you.

A word from the chef:
Canova Hall will focus on food with Italian roots such as pizza and pasta.
Brixton is seemingly the latest stop for London's trend train, and while local aggravation over venue closures are just and fair, that hasn't stopped its property being snapped up by those looking to capitalise on this new millennial territory. And...

Reply from Canova HallThanks for your feedback. We were so grateful that so many people checked us out in our opening week, although this did create some challenges for us. Glad you enjoyed the food. I promise you that the staff are continuing to receive training as we go in to our third trading week, as we continue to try and improve our delivery. Thank you again for taking the time to leave a review.
Reply from Canova HallThanks so much for your feedback. A very balanced view overall and we apologise for our failings on your visit. We would really like to get you back if you would agree. Please do let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and again our apologies. Darren
Reply from Canova HallThanks for getting in touch. Your review made me both smile in addition to throwing my head in to my hands. It sounds like we neglected you somewhat, but it is clear you guys are already regular customers of ours from the 4 visits. Please let us try and get you back. If this is agreeable please e mail me at email@example.com.
Reply from Canova HallThanking you kindly. We have 2 stunning croquettes for you and a friend on your next visit.
Reply from Canova HallThanks for leaving your feedback and let me first say sorry for the delays you experienced. I promise you we are working hard to improve this as we go in to our second full week of opening. Our bartenders are delighted with your feedback and have asked me to get you and a friend to come back and see them with a cocktail each on us. Let me know when you might like to return by e mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Reply from Canova HallThanks for your review. Our Brunch session has been extremely popular but this is no excuse for some the issues you have experienced. I would like to personally apologise and tell you we are working hard to improve our delivery on the brunch session in particular.
Reply from Canova HallPlease accept my apologies. Our weekend brunch popularity has been amazing, but this has in turn caused us some operational issues which we are working hard to improve on. Can I reach out to the 10 year old in your group and get he or she to convince the 5 others to come back for pancakes on me? If so let me know to email@example.com when you would like to come. In addition to 6 lots of pancakes I would like to soften the blow further with 3 litre’s of our frizzante for the grownups.
Reply from Canova HallYou are most welcome. Thank you.
Reply from Canova HallI can’t apologise enough for the non-available items. If you would like to give us another go I would love to get you back for Italian Baked Eggs, Beetroot Frittata, Avocado on toast and our Smokey Rigatoni (which is vegetarian without the scarmoza cheese). Please let me know if we can convince you to return firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, my sincere apologies.
Reply from Canova HallThank you for this. I have posted on our staff room wall for all our guys.
Reply from Canova HallThank you for your understanding. I hope we do better second time around.
Reply from Canova HallWe can’t wait to have you back. Thank you.
Reply from Canova HallThank you so much for saying so. Ask us for a membership tag on your next visit as a thank you from us.
Reply from Canova HallWe have indeed been crazy busy, but your wait time is still too excessive. Please let me give you 50% off your next visit for your 50-minute wait on your last one. E-mail me at email@example.com.
Reply from Canova HallThank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. Please accept my personal apologies and let me re assure you we are working hard with all of our team, to improve our food quality and the execution. We are aware of some of the problems you experienced, especially at our peak sessions. We are still very much in our infancy but this is by no means an excuse for the experience you describe above. I would love to attempt to try and get you back. If you can e mail me directly at darren@albionandeast I hope that we can have another go at getting it right.
