This place is OK but only OK. With a couple of Real Ales and the usual lagers on offer, there is at least a choice. It's a little more expensive than you might expect from the way it looks.
I have mainly gone in here since it's near my office and it's the only place where there is a chance to get a table for a few people on a Friday evening this close to London Bridge.
The pool table feels like it's for locals only (probably not the best place in here to hang around) and they have the jukebox playing pretty loud most of the time (with a totally random selection of music).
Sport might be shown on the big screen if something is on.
This place serves a purpose for our office instead of a great place to hang out at; more we have a couple there and wait for the group size to reduce and then move somewhere better.
I really like this Italian Deli in Borough Market. It is less deli and more cafe. The coffee is ok - Monmouth is better. However, they have delicious Italian pastries which are fantastic for a breakfast or morning tea treat.
Good salads, great cakes - tiramisu is delicious.
What is best though is its care trade status. It is connected to an autism charity giving people with autism work opportunities.
Their exclusive olive oil is pricey but stunning, and is connected to a very good cause.
Walked into Holly and Lil the other weekend and walked out with a very smart Harris tweed collar for our new puppy.
Very friendly staff, and very dog friendly environment. Make sure you take your dog as they are allowed to run around and generally rule the place.
Excellent quality gear - very well made.
Favourite place to grab some healthy and tasty lunch on those days when Borough Market is not open. Portions are big enough, and cheap, expect to pay 3 pounds for a dish. Roasted winter vegetables are a winner!
The food was up to the usual high standard (although don’t bother with the garlic bread) and in terms of layout and décor, this cavernous restaurant under the railway line is probably the nicest looking Nandos I have ever been to. They even have a place to wash your hands next to the drinks and cutlery which is a great idea.
What let the place down was the service at the till. I was waiting for a while (not helped admittedly by people who seemed to have wandered up with their menus but had not yet figured out what they actually wanted – these people should be shot). When I finally got to the front and began my monologue the chap at the till got a call on his mobile phone and vanished off the face of the earth. Eventually he was replaced by an attractive waitress, which was a good trade…but by this stage I was grumpy and considering leaving. I’m glad I didn’t..but I have to knock off a star for this!
(Happy Moose Drinker,
Just visited for my ladies birthday. We frequent this simple, friendly curry house. It doesn't look much as any good Indian should but all the main ingredients are there: King Fisher on top, flavour some great food, good service and waiters who smile and mean it. Having sampled all the Indian restaurants in SE1 I will always go here first. Enjoy kids
Housed in an historic building built in 1897 for grocers Lovell and Christmas The Larder is a food lovers haven with restaurant, bakery, shop and bar all under one roof. Fresh, home grown produce is the order of the day here with a weekly changing seasonal menu to keep foodies on their toes.
The fish is served within hours of being caught off the Norfolk and South Eastern coast, meat arrives daily via neighbouring Smithfield Market and vegetables are grown on Secretts Farm in Surrey. To top it off, in honour of the gin distilleries which opened in Clerkenwell during the 18th century, The Larder bar has gathered the largest collection of gin in London! G&T anyone?
This is the same place but with more info
Great place to meet up with friends. Right in the entrance to More Place London its a bright, contemporary glass building with a large outdoor seating area. Popular for out of office meetings and after work drinks due to its location near London Bridge Station and free WiFi access.
The brasserie serves a high quality range of food from cooked breakfasts to full evening meals. The wine list is excellent featuring fine wines, Champagnes and cocktails as well as the usual drinks and nibbles.
Points worth noting is that this bar is entirely on one level so ideal for disabled customers. Also it can be hired for private parties particularly at weekends.
This would make a perfect venue for a New Years eve party due to it's very close proximity to the river Thames to see the fireworks.
Amano's near London Bridge is a comfortable restaurant serving wonderful food (big portions) and great coffee. The staff have always been ultra-friendly and the clients a wonderful bunch.
This place gives off such good vibes that whenever I pass it I feel the need to eat or drink something there whether I need food or watering or not.
