So easy to find and just a short walk from London bridge. The breakfast was perfect - none of the jazzed up menu nonsense here. Bacon, eggs, black pudding & bubble and squeak all yours for a fiver. Wash it down with a proper brew...More

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
