Southside, Wandsworth - anything worth eating nearby?

Help! I'm going to Southside, Wandsworth to see The Artist with friends next week. Is there anywhere remotely edible within walkiing distance for a pre-film supper?

    I've eaten at the pan-Asian place inside Southside which was surprisingly edible, though not exactly Chow-worthy. Your best bet might be something on Old York Road, just next to Wandsworth Town station. Haven't tried anywhere there as we are usually in too much of a rush to get to the film. I think I may have heard mediocre things about Konnigan's, though I'm willing to be corrected. Maybe someone else can chime in with something more helpful!

      Thanks, I'd forgotten Old York Road. We'll probably go to Brady's.

        Love Brady's - that sounds like quite the thing. Though to get you in the mood for the film, the Cat's Back isn't too far away - don't think it's food is massively chow-worthy, but it's a unique spot...

          Is it nice? A friend lives in those apartment blocks so I walk past quite often, but the occasional characters standing outside on the pavement have always put me off going on!

            Well, it's a very middle class chippy, but none the worse for that. The standard battered cod and haddock are fresh and delicious and you can also get grilled fish eg halibut. The house wine is cheap and very drinkable.. Luke Brady, the owner, is there most nights and there's always a cheerful buzz. I like it very much - though on this occasion time is extremely limited so we're going to try the pan-Asian place in Southside.

              Good to know; I eat fish and chips so rarely that I want to make sure they're good when (if) I do. Will have to try. Though I was actually asking Bodessa about the Cat's Back!

              Good luck with the Asian place (I can't remember the name) I'd say it's better than Wagamama, which isn't hard, but nothing you'll want to write about here!
