‘Perfect when nearby José is packed like sardines’, Señor Pizarro’s larger and smarter gaff offers a calmer atmosphere and more elbow room with its bar, communal table and semi-circular booths. Plates of accomplished Spanish food can be ordered in conventional three-course order or mixed and matched as the mood takes you. Either way, expect an array of bold, bright flavours from a frequently changing menu that might list Jerusalem artichokes with goats’ curd and hazelnut, deep-fried sweetbreads with mustard mayo or duck breast with pears, spinach and orange. Sundays see brunch till 2pm and roasts until they run out – attracting lazy locals and culinary tourists feeling the pull of Bermondsey’s growing gastronomic reputation. Meanwhile, informed staff take drinkers on an oenophile journey through Spain’s wine-growing regions as they suggest ‘great and unusual’ tipples by the glass. Bookings at lunchtime only.
