Welcome to the Forum and SE1!
In terms of supermarkets, there is a Tesco in the E&C Shopping Centre which, from memory, isn't that great. Nearest big supermarkets are Tesco and Asda
on the Old Kent Road
The Elephant doesn't have a great reputation, but if you are streetwise, you should be fine (walk purposefully, don't fumble maps, don't walk down very dark streets/passages, etc.). My ex-girlfriend lived on Blackfrairs Road, on the corner of Pocock Street
, and never had any problems.
Would highly recommend The Ring
(opposite Southwark tube) for a quick lunch. There are tonnes of restaurants around The Cut
and on Isabella Street
. Plus Southwark tube is great for getting into the West End quickly.
