Phew. And I thought it was just me who didn't like the Hartley...
I went in last Wednesday night to have a quiet pint. After ordering and paying at the bar we grabbed the comfy seats near the door only to be wistled at by the bartender. He was trying to get our attention because we forgot to collect our change.
I'm all for supporting local businesses but they have to try harder then that to impress me.
The only thing the place has got going for it is it's location and one (very) helpful waitress and one semi-helpful waiter (no, not the floppy-haired guy). I'd rather walk an extra 5 minutes and eat in The Bermondsey Kitchen
or The Garisson.
What's the food like in Simon The Tanner? I heard it changed ownership recently.
