I agree - live just round the corner from the Hartley and certainly don't see TBR/Grange Road
as the frontier town to the riches of Bermondsey Street
that you suggest.
I'm a big fan of the Garrison, the Woolpack and Village East
(not so much Bermondsey Kitchen
which always feels a bit over-priced to me) but of all the gastro pubs in the immediate area, the Hartley just feels to me like the one most patronised by locals, which can only be a good thing.
Indeed, dined at the Hartley last week and was happy as always.
