I have had brunch here twice and could not fault it. The food is beautiful and it’s a nice atmosphere for bottomless brunches, but without that pub feel. Every restaurant on Bermondsey Street allows dogs, including this one (yay). I love the rustic interiors, including...More

Great decor and ambiance. Had scallops as the entree and miso glazed salmon as the main and they were absolutely lovely. The staff were friendly and attentive, and checked a couple of times to make sure everything's ok for me. Would love to visit again!

I did not find this place great or bad. Good atmosphere and excellent staff, but menu was a bit disappointing. I had the chilli calamari and the mushroom mains, which were fine.

Visited with partner for brunch. Great pancakes and fruit salad. Tasty juice. Staff friendly. Only downside was a rather unreasonable customer who was dealt with well by the staff!

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

This is actually pretty good. However "The Garrison" is a firm favourite for quirky. The decor is unique - check the drawers in your table - and the food tasty.

Village East restaurant in chic south London enclave Bermondsey Street is designed to call to mind a hip East Village establishment in Manhattan. It sprawls through a listed warehouse and glass-fronted apartment building and is decorated in polished concrete, rough wooden pillars, striking curved white chairs, and a wide open kitchen. Sit back and enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine while watching chefs hard at work creating the modern eclectic dishes that make up the Village East menu. In layman���s terms, this means European flavours and techniques are coupled with South East Asian influences, resulting in some intriguing combinations. We had our eye on the seared scallops and caramelised pork belly with carrot puree and teriyaki glaze; and the West Cork beef burger with sauteed foie gras, caramelised onion, jumbo gherkin and chips, but if you���re more in the mood for a steak, or fish and chips, there���s plenty of that on offer too.
