The appearance of a specialist deli among a parade of bookies, convenience stores and launderettes is a sure sign of gentrification hitting a suburb. In Bambuni’s case, there’s the added bonus of several shelves full of top notch bottled beer, and a drink-in policy that means this small, clean and tidy shop doubles as a miniature daytime bar. Opening hours are extended into the evening on occasional “bar nights,” usually in conjunction with some other local event. A location just across Nunhead Green from the Old Nun’s Head pub, with whom they have partnered to run miniature local beer festivals, adds to the convenience.

The range is a roll call of UK craft brewers of the moment like Arbor, Buxton, Dark Star, Hardknott, Kernel, Mallinsons, Moor, Oakham, Redwillow, Saltaire, Summer Wine and Thornbridge, alongside rare Italians like Brewfist and Mastri Birrai Umbri. Enthusiastic owner Huey, who opened the shop, next door to long established and locally celebrated fishmonger Sopers, in September 2011, clearly knows his stuff.
