That place gets better. If that's possible. They now have half bottles of Innocente on the wine list which is delicious. But avoid the Tunisian wine which gave rise to a thick head, and was just too sweet and too alcoholic to be much fun.

Last night I had the most delicious pork chop I have ever eaten in my life, and that is really saying something. And it's ridiculously cheap too.

Go there, they had empty tables.

I was there too last night and had that same delicious pork chop! The wine we had, a 1999 St Emilion was very good. Very nice restaurant but very smoky whereas we asked for a non smoking table.

I've only been once but I was quite disappointed with the food - I took my mum there and the salad that came with her fish was really awful. One leaf of wilting boring lettuce, a tomato cut in half and no dressing. Sort of thing you'd expect in a motorway service station.
I'd be willing to give it a second try but I think I might stick with the Garrison.

I had a delicious meal at the Bermondsey Kitchen the other night; I recommend it.

One complaint: that bottled tap water for bottled water is a complete rip-off.

Otherwise it was excellent.

We are regulars and like the food, but they still have not got the customer service sorted out. Reception is poor - there doesn't seem to be any one person in charge, so staff are not sure whether you have been attended to and are waiting for a table, having a drink or waiting for a drink at the bar. Sometimes it takes several minutes to be noticed. Billing and payment is terribly slow. Drives my French partner with industry experience mad. They need a front of house manager.
