Square Meal Review of The Garrison ?

Turn up to this sunny gastropub, with its shabby-chic interior and quirky styling, and you might be treated to crispy pork-cheek fritters with butternut-squash purée and salsa verde followed by cod from the daily specials board, delicately spiced and sitting atop an earthy lentil stew – army rations were never this good. This foodie billet also feeds allcomers with breakfasts of kedgeree and muesli – although waiting ‘50 minutes’ for (partially cooked) poached eggs on toast demands a severe reprimand. Lunch brings salads and sarnies, pub snacks fill the gaps and there are proper roasts at the weekend – plus excellent gingerbread cake with ginger ice cream and butterscotch sauce for dessert. Staff are young, willing and cheerful (if a tad lax), but the laid-back vibe generally wins everyone over – helped along by an accomplished wine list.

  1. The Garrison is a pub-cum-restaurant on Bermondsey Street and it’s owned by the same people as Riding House Café and Village East. After a not-so-successful lunch at the latter, I was hoping the Garrison would be a good choice for a relaxing Sunday roast on Father’s Day – but sadly it wasn’t quite so.

    It’s a really charming space with a bustling atmosphere which is helped by the fact the place is constantly busy. It’s all very reclaimed wooden tables, mis-matched chairs and random, old fashioned lamp shades...
