BERMONDSEY RESTAURANTS & BARS
Tucked away at the end of Bermondsey Street underneath Antico Restaurant. Intimate and friendly, serving over 80 gins, a delicious array of carefully created cocktails and is the home of hand-crafted BTW Tonic Water.
Herve Durochat, Alexandre Bonnefoy and Sylvian Soulard have teamed up to create this tiny French bistro on Bermondsey Street. The restaurant is as Gallic as they come. The short menu is written on a blackboard, offering just three choices at each stage plus charcuterie. This is photographed and personally tweeted to world each morning, "Bonjour! Votre menu aujourd'hui..."
Pizza made from slow-rising sourdough (minimum 20 hours) and is baked in a wood burning brick oven made on site by specialised artisans from Naples. The menu is small with a choice of only six pizzas and fresh salads.
A small and cosy, inspired by the bustling tapas bars around La Boqueria market in Barcelona ad the traditional tapas bars in the hot, dusty towns and villages of Andalucia.
TANNER & CO
A warehouse, restaurant and bar offering all day dining, a lengthy cocktail list and décor inspired by an old fashioned gymnasium. Food is described as a 'contemporary take on comfort food', with typical dishes including crispy spam fritters and piccalilli, and liver, bubble and squeak croquettes and onion gravy.
The restaurants name and the leather aprons worn by staff are a nod to the area's past as the location of many of London's tanneries.
The Hide Bar is located on the ground floor of the International Wine & Spirit Centre on Bermondsey Street. Cocktails are their speciality with over 500 of the world's best spirits on the back bar. They also have a never-ending selection of wines and beers on tap from the Meantime Brewery.
