British | London Bridge, South East London

We went for an experience at Story for a birthday celebration. It was no doubt an occasion we will remember for a long time! The detail to service was great, from the letter addressed to the birthday girl, to the way everyone's plate at the table was placed down at the same time - it was an experience I would recommend. I would also like to point out that the desserts there were my favourite part of the meal, especially because there was so much variety and everything was edible! Do bear in mind that with this paced out tasting menu, your lunch easily turns into a 3 - 4hr activity! More

The Gladstone ArmsThe Gladstone Arms
Indian | Borough, South East London

Having been situated here on Lant Street since the nineteenth century (with a rebuild in the ’20s), "The Glad" is named after four-time former prime minister William Gladstone and even gets a mention in ‘The Pickwick Papers’ as Charles Dickens once lived on the same road.

The intimate family-run pub, located just a stone's throw away from Borough tube station is a dominant live music spot and the best of it's kind near London Bridge! You can expect gigs every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from genres of folk, blues, pop to electronica. The pub boasts an intimate beer garden/roof terrace and an upstairs lounge area that can be used for private hire!More

The Station HotelThe Station Hotel
British | Hither Green, South East London

Join us at The Station Hotel for a traditional London pub experience. Real ales and great pub food, served in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere in an historic building in South London. The Station Hotel, as you might expect, is located near two train stations (Hither Green & Lewisham Station) in this residential part of London, making it the perfect meeting place for friends around the area. With easy links into Central London, but far enough out of town to feel like a real locals’ pub, The Station enjoys the best of both worlds.More
