Bermondsey Street is hardly lacking for places to eat, but locals have always felt that a solid restaurant offering artisan European fare would slot in perfectly in this corner of London. Now, on the corner of Bermondsey Street and Newham’s Row, wish-fulfilment has occurred in the friendly form of Via Bermondsey. The proprietors are long-time local artisan bakers, whose ovens are housed right across the road. Naturally, the bakery supplies Via Bermondsey with fresh bread and pastry, and the seriously good dough for their seriously proper pizzas, made according to time-honoured tradition the Neapolitan way. Many will dine here simply for the classic pizza, emerging from the oven with the charred, puffy crust that is the mark of the real Neapolitan pie. However, Via Bermondsey is more distinctly a continental European-influenced eatery with a wide ranging quality offering chalked up on the menu. Whether you’re indulging in Via Bermondsey’s already-renowned lunchtime specials or a full-on dinner, you should at least begin a meal at this Bermondsey Street European restaurant with some rustic antipasti. Perfect for casual group lunches, these platters are already a favourite in southeast London, served on wooden boards and offering a teaser for the artisan pan-European cuisine on offer. With menus that change regularly, according to the seasons and the whim of the skilled cheffing team, Via Bermondsey is family and celebration friendly, buggy and wheelchair accessible, and also houses a party room that can be booked out for up to 70 people. Via Bermondsey - we raise our perfectly mixed Negroni to you.
