'A prime territory for those in need of first date ideas.' - GQ Magazine

Great food and wines, very friendly front of house, trying hard to accommodate your needs. Add to this some really nice cocktails and you have harbour hooper's....

The price was higher than the indicative range on the site so be aware! But food, service and ambiance was good.

Really lovely small plates. Not too small though. Lovely flavours in all dishes. The beetroot tagliatelle was a highlight as was the carpaccio. Service very good.

This is my favourite restaurant in Bermondsey. Situated in the vibrant Borough Market. The food is always of a consistently high standard and the wine list very palatable - my favourite is the Alberino. Four of us dined on Tuesday evening and we ordered an array of different dishes which we all shared. Delicious food, excellent service. Love this place

Our favourite restaurant in London. Not just because it is possible to eat well as a vegan, but also because the homemade Amaretto keeps bringing us back... Outstanding.

The set lunch menu is excellent value - we had a aubergine and feta starter followed by a delicious mackerel dish for £12.00. Attentive service. Noise level ok but at times not easy to hear the conversation across the table once the restaurant filled up. Having said that I would go back because the food was excellent.

This was our second visit to Arthur Hopper's, and it did not disappoint.
From the friendly staff and delicious aperitif, to the creative food and wicked liqueurs, it was a delight. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you at in the Borough Market area!

We had a lovely meal, we shared 6 small plates between the 3 of us and it was plenty. We had a delicious bottle of Rose wine although we did feel the wine was on the pricey side

As soon as I came across this restaurant and I saw some of the pics of their food I got very excited about it. Well, my excitement grew even more as soon as started tasting the food and as I started chatting and meeting everyone who worked there. What a delightful bunch! Mao, John, Carla and so on and so forth. I can’t wait to go back and taste other dishes on the menu. Great job you guys! A big shout to John for all his recommendations around town.

The service was great and the wait staff lovely but the food was absolutely dreadful. It tasted as though an amateur chef had gone shopping at Tesco’s and cooked for a below average dinner party. £40 pp for a small meal with wine as well 😱. Better to either splurge at Elliot’s nearby, queue for Padella, book for Boro Bistro or wander down to Bermondsey Street. I don’t understand how this place has so many positive reviews.

Airy, high ceiling room right next to Borough Market. I had asked for a quiet table and we were in a corner where conversation was easy. Good advice on cocktails. Gin/Martini correct and my Baby Doll was very tasty! Very mushroomy pasta, excellent roasted cauliflower with yoghurt and raisins, good chicken pâté with Aperol jelly and a good Herotage Tomato salad. Only one grumble- £7.50 for a 125ml glass of Provence rosé seemed a little steep. Service was very good. We’ll be returning.

Food was really good. Staff very friendly and attentive. They forgot one of our side dishes and immediately rectified it said no charge for it and also a free liqueur. Had a good buzz about it but not massively noisy.

I do not think as 60 somethings we are the clientele this restaurant prefers. We were seated in an out of sight corner, were overlooked much of the hour or so we were there, and were ignored when we asked our courses be spread out so that we could enjoy them slowly. Once we put our orders in, everything arrived quickly, with no chance to finish one item before the next appeared. If you are a young diner, you may enjoy this restaurant more. The food is good and the atmosphere lively.
