Welcome to Southwark Quarter. Bankside’s home for the joyfully eclectic. Nestled in the heart of London’s Bankside, our curated selection of restaurants, bars, street food, and live music brings the best of it all to one historic location – ready for you to discover the eclectic in the everyday.

From fast casual to fine dining

Our community of independent street food traders and culinary experiences have you covered. For a sit-down occasion, look beyond the cornerstones to In Horto for some authentic rustic dining, go Portuguese at Bar Douro, or head over to Lupins on Union Street for award-winning seasonal plates.

If it’s instant gratification you’re after, you’ll find some of London’s finest street food between Tuesday and Sunday, from Breddos Tacos to Gamekeeper Burgers and more. Then there’s our all-day go-to’s: Where the Pancakes Are and Audrey’s.

If you know what to drink, we know where

The much-loved Flat Iron Square has the best crop of beers in SE1, including a wide selection of Lagers, IPAs, Pale Ales, and more. If fine wines are more your thing, look no further than Tap & Bottle, a specialist biodynamic wine bar with a cosy vibe and cosmopolitan wine list to match.

For cocktails, it’s got to be Carrubo, bringing Balearic vibes along with some mixed bites for your Mai Tais. But it’s not all booze – with its modern take on the classic British café-diner, Audrey’s has the speciality coffee flowing as much as the spirits.
