The Circle Store and the Shop at the end of Dockhead are fine for every day items including fruit and veg.
Lovely little Chemist too. The Pont Shop veg and fruit are expensive, but the deli is nice for the odd treat. Staff are usually helpfull too.
Deptford High Street, especially on Market Days is an amazing Place. The 47 or 188 bus will take you there from the Stop by the R.C. Church at Dockhead. The market is on weds. and Saturdays, with stalls spilling out from the shops and everything that makes up a traditional market including stalls full of junk to browse through.
Welcome to s.e.1 by the way.
There are normally at least two fruit and veg stalls at the Bermondsey Square market on a Saturday morning. Along with various butchers, bakers etc.
As for restaurants: Chophouse, Village East, The Garrison, Bermondsey Kitchen, Zucca, Delfina, Constancia, Magdalen, Applebees Fish plus many others all within 15 minutes walk. Prepare for some serious credit card bashing.
Welcome to SE1. I have to say HIBA on Borough High Street is a very good lebanese restaurant. Friendly staff and delicious food. It has become our local take away!
I also recommend Feng Sushi in the market or at RFH. Champor Champor is another good one. Joe's Kitchen on Marshalsea Road is perfect for breakfast and brunch.
I have recently moved here as well and can recommend Aberdeen sea products on Toulmin st for fresh fish, , and apparently they have a company nearby calle dthe sushichef which does sushi, i will report when I have tried it, around the corner is a good small butcher and fruit and veg is a bit ropey!
