Restaurant Story


Chef Tom Sellers has transformed an old toilet block in Bermondsey into a wood-clad restaurant with an adventurous menu. Restaurant Story's signature dish is bread and dripping served as an edible candle, which is lit at the table and served with bread to mop up the melted "wax".

Once upon a time, on a not-so-faraway island between three A roads near Tower Bridge, there used to be a public toilet. One day, along came a great and powerful wizard (Tom Sellers), who used his powers to turn the loos into a nice, cosy, wood-panelled building with lots of lovely bookshelves, and send foodies all over London into a hyped frenzy until they managed to get a booking here to try...more
