Hubby and I came across this tapas bar purely by chance. After spending most of the day in the Southwark Area visiting sights such as Tate Modern ,Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Golden Hinde, we headed for the Fashion & Textile Museum in Bermondsey Street on a miserably cold and rainy day. Without notice, the Museum was closed. Feeling totally disappointed after such a long walk, we saw what we thought was a pub in the street corner and as it was late afternoon, we needed a coffee to warm up.
The place was quite busy but we found two bar stools along the window in a cosy corner. A friendly waitress saw us struggling with our coats on our laps and informed us that we could hang our heavy coats on these handy hooks under the high bench (which was quite a novelty for us folks from a hot climate). We then noticed the scrumptious-looking tapas that were being served to everyone around us and having scanned the blackboard offerings, we decided to stay for early dinner.
Our charming waitress gave us some fabulous recommendations . Food was uncomplicated but made with the best ingredients and all tasted divine! We ended up tasting quite a selection of tapas and sampled quite a few glasses of red wine!! Service was attentive despite being so busy and the atmosphere had such a buzz. We had a wonderful time there and it was like being transported to La Boqueria in Barcelona for a couple of hours whilst resting our weary feet in South London.
The bill was not the cheapest but this place was such a special and accidental find for us, it really didn't matter so much at the end of our last day in London Town.
