Designed by HA Rowbotham and TL Smithson Art Deco Brockwell Lido was built in 1937 and is similar in design to other Lidos built in England around the same time. It remains one of the best examples of the celebrated style of this era.
It was closed in 1990 as part of cost saving measures by Lambeth Council. Around this time, the Brockwell Lido Users group was established and pushed for it to re-open. In 1994 Brockwell Lido re-opened and proved to be as popular as ever with the diverse local community. Fusion Lifestyle took over the running of the pool in 2003, at around the same time the building was given Grade II listed status. The Lido Cafe arrived in 2009 and after an extensive refurbishment, opened it to the public as well as swimmers for the first time in it’s history.
The Lido Cafe is a modern British restaurant open all day serving award winning Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners in one of London’s most unique settings.
Using seasonal ingredients when they are at their best and most abundant they create monthly changing Lunch and and Dinner menus. Expect sourdough bread for their Breakfast all the way to triple cooked chips, they use small producers to find the best ingredients.
An all European wine list is offered by the carafe and glass as well as Craft Beers that pair well with food.
