Bermondsey Street’s restaurant revolution – the top 3 places to eat

Bermondsey is on the up. Just minutes from The Shard and the City, this area is quickly becoming a hotbed for fantastic new eateries. From tempting tapas to brilliant brunches, Bermondsey Street has you covered.


Described as 'as good a restaurant as you could ever want', José specialises in the on-trend combination of chilled sherry and mouth watering Iberico ham. The menu features around 20 other tapas classics from croquetas to Spanish cheese but the meat is the main event here. There are no reservations so get yourself along to José and join the queue.

A new Bermondsey institution, Zucca has been serving up modern Italian cooking since 2010. The focus is on seasonal, stimulating food so expect to find everything from fennel to their homemade focaccia on the menu. Rated highly by Zagat and Time Out there’s no good reason not to zip down to Zucca as soon as you can.

Village East

The morning after the night before. We've all been there and we all know that the cure is a hearty brunch and a great cup of coffee. Luckily for the residents of Bermondsey, Village East is known to serve up fantastic fry-ups and quality coffee for anyone that walks through its doors. With a modern, relaxed vibe you can happily recuperate in peace with a spot of scrambled egg or the classic smoked cheddar burger.
