I'm looking for somewhere I can drink some authentic ales - lots of pubs and bars near to where I work in London Bridge have a very limited selection. Can anyone recommend anywhere?

  • 214 Bermondsey: A popular gin joint that holds over 100 bottles of Gin with a mix of London and Californian Gins.  
  • Hop Burns & Black: In this well stocked bar, you will find 300 bottled beers, hot sauces and multiple vintage vinyl records. This is a tiny micropub which served bottled beers and beers by the keg. You will get beer from all parts of the UK here.
  • Balls brothers: Located close to the London Bridge station, this wine bar is located next to the Thame.
  • Bermondsey distillery:  This is the home of Jensen’s Gin in London and located next to Maltby Street Market. This distillery is open to the public for gin tastings and for other drinks. You can also book gin distillery tours for groups of 10-20 people.
  • Bermondsey Yard Cafe: This is a car park that has been converted into a restaurant and is a great spot.
