Had a lovely evening here at short notice. Between the two of us we had beets, minestrone soup, chips and cauliflower and leek gratin. Everything was tasty. Service friendly and able to advise which dishes could be made vegan for my companion. Will visit again.

We dropped in without a reservation and we had to wait for an hour. It was full. Service was a bit slow but the food was superb, great tasting, good portion sizes. The food is faultless.

The food here is superb, great tasting good portion sizes. The roasted cauliflower soup was easily the best I've had. The food is faultless.

Went for drinks with friends. Standing room only. Very busy. Wasn't over fussed on selection of drinks they had but still had a cracking evening. Had some nibbly food, wasn't hugely impressed but service was wonderful.

Lovely breakfast, worst customer service ever! Service unorganised, chaotic and really poor. Waited to be seated for 15 min without been informed how long it will take. Double and triple the time to been served and to pay.

The food portions were very small, basic and disappointing. The risotto in particular is a heart attack waiting to happen. Service was slow and the food took over an hour to arrive. When the plates were taken we were then advised there was another booking...More

Spent an absolute fortune here (wine, desserts, starters, etc.) only to be literally chased off our table - physically asked to leave . We booked weeks ago, but seems we only had a two hour slot allocated to us, which no one made us aware...More

A group of six of us were looking for a pub to eat a quick dinner in on a saturday night. We liked the look of the menu, they looked quite busy but we asked anyway. The staff managed to squeeze us in and the...More

The Garrison gives the first impression of being a pub but on entering it has more of the feel of a restaurant. Tables are small and close together which either creates a good atmosphere or is claustrophbic depending on your opinion. Good selection of drinks...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
