Checked out The Garrison the other night- very promising...bit weird getting your bearings with the new layout, but essentially understated cool, some comfy green seats, kitchen on show (delicious, if the snacks were anything to go by), Friendly if slightly overheating staff, white wooden panels and a new space downstairs which could be used for film screenings (we like!).
It was one of the warmest nights of the year, so spent most of it outside. Scotia Bar punters looked a bit peeved at the throng- but there's room for both of them, surely.
Well done Jaime and team to managing to get it together when it looked more like a building site a few days previous!
Sat outside on Friday - it felt slightly surreal, not at all like Bermondsey, more like Clapham. Hurrah! At last the sort of drinkery we've been waiting for - wasn't sure if it was open last night, but glad to hear it was. Look forward to going back and trying out the food.
I didn't mean Hurrah it's like Clapham, I meant Hurrah what a great place! - wouldn't want to live in Clapham (full of Claphamites), I just think that we could do with a few more independent, funky bars in Bermondsey.
well I now know where my man will be each evening with his two fav beers on tap....me thinks a little visit ce soir is in line........pity we're leaving the country shortly and will miss this gem of a place after six happy years.....
