Bermondsey St has many options. Jose and Pizarro's are the best however. Jose offers a fantastic Tapas experience. It's small and popular so arrive early to secure a spot. Pizza to offers a bit more formality but is also a gem.

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
