The Dairy in Bermondsey is one of a handful of restaurants from acclaimed chef Robin Gill and is the reincarnation of the chef’s original brand – just in a different postcode.
Originally, The Dairy was found on Clapham Common, and opened in 2012 to critical acclaim with Gill bringing techniques and experience from world-famous Norma where he had previously worked. However, eight years later following lockdown in the UK, Gill was forced to close his first. Just weeks later the news of The Dairy Bermondsey was announced, offering an exciting new venue for the Irish chef and his team.
Gill is renowned for using seasonal and local produce to create fresh plates, something which continues at The Dairy Bermondsey. Despite the original concept remaining the same, there is a new menu to celebrate the change of address. Expect bold British flavours from the Irish chef, like mackerel with fresh gherkins, sea purslane and dash. Elsewhere guests will be able to select dishes like wood roasted lamb with ‘hayonnaise’ accompanied by charred lettuce and mint oil; Julie Girl skate with a pine nut sauce, fennel kimchi and sea vegetables or a vegetarian medley of bitter grilled radicchio with a broad bean puree and pickled Tropea onions. Sweet tooths can be satisfied by desserts like a malted barley ice cream with salted caramel and cacao or coffee butterscotch and rye tart.
With an atmosphere akin to its predecessor, Gill hopes The Dairy in Bermondsey will have a neighbourhood restaurant vibe while embracing his signature modern tasting menu style.
Finding its home at 153-157 Tower Bridge Road, The Dairy Bermondsey is within stone’s throw of the Tower of London, The Shard, Borough Market and a whole host of other top attractions – making it the ideal pitstop on a tour of London’s sites.
