Bermondsey Pub Co (Ei Group)

About the Pub

Just off Dorset Square, re-opened in mid-November 2014 and reverting to one of its former names, this pub features wood everywhere, plus quirky bric-a-brac such as clocks and very eclectic furniture. There is a gastro feel, but beer is not neglected. The kitchen offers a modern all-day pub menu with dishes such as half a beer-brined chicken with sweet potato fries.

The flagstoned Cellar Bar is available for hire – check out the framed newspapers featuring the famous 1975 Siege of Balcombe Street.

One of the first of a new-wave of Enterprise managed pubs. Introduced a discount for CAMRA members in the summer of 2016.
