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.

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

foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
