The Table

SquareMeal Review of The Table

This casual brunch and lunch spot capitalises on its location in prime office-worker territory by serving a crowd-pleasing menu in a bustling, bright open-plan dining room. The Table started as a staff canteen, but after a decade, it keeps with the times by balancing mountainous burgers and all-day brunch choices with healthier ‘small plates’. Indulge in a well-priced classic cocktail before tackling snacks of confit pig’s cheek rillettes or polenta chips, then dive into ‘the stack’, a towering tribute to breakfast consisting of toasted bagel, chorizo, smoked ham hock, baked beans and poached eggs. We also enjoyed a refreshing plate of beetroot, blood orange and horseradish yoghurt, while spiced cauliflower with harissa was a steal at £5. Finish with blueberry and double-cream waffles and be thankful they’re available through the day. Pricing is in keeping with the area, and staff offer a friendly welcome. Bread arrives by bike from Bermondsey’s Little Bread Pedlar bakery, and herbs are plucked nearby in association with homeless charity St Mungo’s – you’ll leave The Table happy to have contributed to the local community.

Fairtrade, organic, locally sourced, environmentally friendly, sustainable, carbon neutral, biodegradable & recyclable. The Table Café at Southwark promises all of these things. I found the summary of greenie credentials on the biodegradable menu at this ‘award winning restaurant’ about as captivating as the food. It was bland, uninteresting and looked like it had been prepared by a student. Take your carbon footprint elsewhere.

We found this fabulous little spot to relax while enjoying a spectacular brunch – “The Table” is just a hop, skip and jump down the road from us in Southwark. With the weather being a tad on the chilly side last Sunday, we were lucky enough to find two bar stools at the end of a communal table inside. The Table's decor is trendy, stylish and sophisticated, while the menu offers a combination of both sweet and savoury, including classics like Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon with scrambled eggs or yummy Buttermilk Pancakes – guaranteed to please any breakfast junkie! My husband ordered Eggs Benedict “two poached eggs served on toasted organic muffin with smoked streaky bacon, and the best hollandaise sauce on Southwark Street”. They weren't lying about that. The eggs arrived with soft runny bright yellow yolks and the hollandaise sauce was satiny, smooth textured, fluffy & light, in other words, flawless! (Trust me, I am very finicky!) I opted to try the sweetcorn fritter stack – “sweetcorn fritters with char-grilled tomato compote, baby-leaf spinach and two poached eggs with hollandaise”. A stack full of yumminess indeed! The combination of flavours was sensational, the tomatoes were sweet and bursting with intense flavour and the eggs were poached to perfection. The side orders were too tempting to resist (as if we didn't have enough on our plates already) – we decided to go with the trio package of hand-made pork and leek sausages, home-made ham-hock-infused baked beans & lastly, char-grilled San Marzano tomatoes. Comfort food indeed… to help get your tastebuds dancing!!! We loved our brunch at The Table and will definately go back there sometime soon, perhaps even to try out their lunch, or dinner menu. The service was good and we enjoyed the bustling vibe. This is the ultimate weekend brunch spot!
