Tiny place, okay 'intimate'. Super busy attentive staff providing food that's so fresh it needs slapping. The eponymous owner is charming and a dish himself. The only downside is that Estate Agents with their nasty suits and Michael Kors handbags go there on a Thursday...More

Small place for small, well-formed plates of Spanish fare. A nice range, all cooked to order, with a cold beer on the side.

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

of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
