Brixton’s lost Eel And Pie House, Coldharbour Lane SW9

Surviving well into the mid-1990s in Brixton was this Eel & Pie House, located at 426, Coldharbour Lane, SW9.

Serving up plates of cheap and nutritious eels, pie and mash, the shop managed to survive nearly being burnt down in the 1981 Brixton Riots, but finally closed around 1996.

The premises are now used by Gyoza, a Japanese and Chinese restaurant.
