A lovely Saturday afternoon spot!

Stumbled into this place, after fleeing the hordes of people at the Maltby Street market on a cold windy saturday afternoon. Great big burgers (a bit large to be honest, but delicious) fantastic gnudi in truffle butter, big perfect triple cooked chips, food for the vegan among us and macaroni and... read more

Went with friends and on our arrival the staff found us a table pretty quickly, despite the place being busy. The staff were helpful, friendly and didn't forget about us! We all thought that our tempranillo wine was over-priced and rather average in taste. There was plenty of choice on the menu, but overall the quality was average.

We had just arrived at London that day on the Sunday, and were looking for somewhere to eat. The Garrison was reasonably busy and was right across our apartment so it sounded like a good choice. When we came in we were told that we would have come back in 20 minutes as they were closed, even though they had... More

Amazing food all round. I tried the ox tongue, roast beef, parsnip and goats cheese tart - all were amazing and well priced. Great vibes and a great hang out place with friends!

Sadly the food didn't live up to the lively atmosphere. Fish and chips was well below par. Batter was overly salty to the point of being barely edible and I was served 9, yes 9, chips! More were ordered, for no extra cost, after my complaint. The salad on the parsnip and goat's cheese salad was drowned in vinegar and... More

Where you go in Bermondsey Street when everywhere else is full and argue with your partner about paying the 'optional' service charge.

Reasonable food, but only reasonable and priced as if it was better. Nice location on Bermondsey St. That 'deliberately a bit shabby' look that is fashionable I guess but not my favourite. Service was average too. So there was nothing wrong with my meal, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go here.

Popped in here for lunch and generally was very happy with the food and atmosphere. This place is apparently always very busy, so we were a bit surprised that they were not geared up to handle the amount of customers promptly. They made a mistake with our wine and eventually we got the bottle having finished our food. Shame because... More

The garrison is essentially a funky gastropub - with a screening room downstairs for movie nights. The tables are all squeezed in together and it does feel a little cramped - which also results in it being quite noisy. The staff here are a real asset to this place - friendly, fun and really helpful.

Service, food, atmosphere all absolutely brilliant. Lovely Canadian waiter who was very polite and helpful. Went for hen night so room was booked downstairs where one could take DVD and have it projected while eating. Quite shabby chic and a lovely atmosphere
