The food portions were very small, basic and disappointing. The risotto in particular is a heart attack waiting to happen. Service was slow and the food took over an hour to arrive. When the plates were taken we were then advised there was another booking...More

Spent an absolute fortune here (wine, desserts, starters, etc.) only to be literally chased off our table - physically asked to leave . We booked weeks ago, but seems we only had a two hour slot allocated to us, which no one made us aware...More

The Garrison gives the first impression of being a pub but on entering it has more of the feel of a restaurant. Tables are small and close together which either creates a good atmosphere or is claustrophbic depending on your opinion. Good selection of drinks...More

This is great place to go for brunch without the pretense and over trying tendencies. The food is great, dessert are a highlight. I would say book to get a table.

I'll be honest I am not normally big on pubs, but if more pubs were done like this I could be persuaded to change my mind. This place is very sheek! Well decorated with wonderful service and reasonably priced. The food was tasty, I could...More

We dropped in without a reservation on Sunday and were really lucky to find a table for an hour - just enough time for some of the nicest roast beef with all the beautifully cooked veg and Yorkshire pud you could ask for! Service was...More

Brief examples: Service: waited for 1.5 hours to our entrees (5 of us) Food: flavorless (at least the butternut salad and the Guinea fowl) Setup: SO loud. Couldn't hear a thing of what my neighbor told me and had to yell the entire night.More

We are terribly sorry to hear about your time at The Garrison. Unfortunately due to all the hard surfaces in the building it tends to be quite loud when we are busy. There is no excuse for bad food or service and for that we...More

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
