La Cave is just to the side of Borough Market - quirky place with indoor and outdoor seating. Decent food at decent prices. You can have snacky sharing platters or cooked food. My colleague had the burger and raved about it, gave it 9 out of 10. I had the sea bream which was nice but they were a bit... More

We were just about to go down the steps from London Bridge to Borough Market when we peered over the railings and spotted the secluded sunny terrace of La Cave below us. There was a very comfy - looking sofa under a parasol with our name on it ! We only wanted a cappuccino but lingered for an hour as... More

A nice cosy place very close to London Bridge. Fab amuse bouche. Goat s cheese salad at £6 is very reasonable, not mind blowing but good. Duck breast with stripes carrots was overcooked when I asked fo rose. Otherwise great service from Mathieu and Benjamin. Bit slow to start with from the kitchen but then it is better.

On that sunny Thursday, my wife and I were visiting Borough market and by 11am we decided to get a good coffee. We found that place and its wonderful terrace exposed in the sun. While we were enjoying our coffee and chatting, hanger starter to get us. Shall we move? Yes probably, we didn't come to the UK to eat... More

Went here with some friends for a few drinks after work which turned into a bit of a long one! Very well looked after by Benjamin, keeping our wine topped up and making us happy. Ordered some nibbles and was disappointed by the size of the portion of chips but they were good enough. Will hopefully be back there as... More

We live in the vicinity and we thought it might be a good idea to check out this restaurant which is under the steps in southwark area. Walked in on a Saturday night and there were a few couples. Looking at the menu I felt it was one of those places that over promises and under delivers - not cheap... More

I've always hated pigeons in London, and now I have another reason. The 'pigeon' I was served, as part of the £60 NYE menu was bitter and disappointing. Not only that, but the ambience was shot, the staff were slow and looked like they didn't want to be there and they were playing two different types of music: Country and... More

We booked a table for a Christmas meal at 6.30pm in late December. The restaurant asked us (a party of eight) for a pre-order which was sent in the afternoon. We arrived at 6.30pm, were served some wine and bread and waited....and waited....and waited. Eventually we asked where the food was and someone came with some menus. We advised that... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
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 attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
