Service was relaxed and friendly, all dishes explained to us. We had five between two of us which was enough, all were delicious. Beer cold, so all good. Would recommend.

As usual very busy but staff made sure we were seated promptly and gave a good recommendation for red wine to accompany the tapas . The tapas on offer is freshly prepared and was very tasty.

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
