A delightful restaurant with a social mission - training unemployed young people for a profession. The food is excellent (try the aubergine lasagne!) and the service attentive, courteous and prompt. Very reasonably priced and located close to London Bridge.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
