Went for my second meal at this Bermondsey Italian with great anticipation. Had a quick dinner the other night which was excellent. Would Sunday lunch be as good or better? Well it was better.

Slow Cooked Pork & Juniper Ragu Pappardelle £14 (generous...more

For the price it was uninspiring.
The decor is lovely, very good...more
