Back in the summer, I joined the Ben & Jerry's team as a Flavour Roadie in Waterloo to celebrate the launch of their new Cookie Core flavours. Looking for bars and restaurants for after their shift, the team asked me if I had any recommendations. Here's what I suggested:
1. GONG, The Shard
Located next to London Bridge station, The Shard has an amazing view of the city. GONG, on level 52, is the highest bar in London and offers a peaceful escape from the city's bustle — perfect for sunset cocktails and late-night drinks.
2. The Table, Southwark Street
With a focus on sourcing quality British ingredients, The Table on Southwark Street is THE place for breakfast. With an all-day brunch menu including waffles, corn fritters and Eggs Benedict, I couldn't think of a better place for breakfast.
3. Hixter Bankside, Great Guildford Street
For those working nearby, Hixter Bankside (Mark Hix's chicken and steak restaurant), offers an amazing early bird menu from £9.95 including steak tartar and steak sandwiches — don't skimp on the fries, they're the best bit!
4. Laithwaites Wine, Stoney Street
Looking for a tipple to take home? Laithwaites Wine, a stones throw from London's Borough Market, stocks a huge range of wines, spirits and whiskies. Ask about the white port they stock — you'll be blown away.
5. Cafe 171, Southwark
Located on Union Street, Cafe 171 is a hidden gem. Serving fresh, seasonal food from the heart of the Jerwood Space, a leading rehearsal venue for theatre and dance, the space is a sanctuary on rainy days.
