NFT London Bermondsey

Bermondsey

With its mixed bag of winding cobbled streets, council estates, and posh new builds, you can imagine the awkwardness when the new-to-the-neighbourhood clean shirt steps into the the adamantly local Bermondsey boozer. The old-timers are sticking to their guns, and there is a definite dirty side to this on-the-cusp part of town. For quaint Japanese try Poppy Hana on Jamaica Road.

Old Justice
The Old Justice by Fountain Square is a great pub which doesn't quite make sense. It's an oak wood paneled pub with great wooden floors. It has great games and a feel of the country pub about it. A proper inn. During the day locals sit at the outside tables, but I've never seen anyone in there at night except for me, my drinking partner neighbour, and the owners. There is something brilliantly ramshackle about it--you ask for wine, they have to run off and find a bottle, then it gets served in a brandy glass. The Old Justice is slap bang in the middle of white working class Bermondsey, but it's run by Koreans. Who live there. Who seem to have come to Bermondsey just to run the pub. They brought the games in, scrubbed up the wood, forgot the wine and the wine glasses, and they put in a Korean restaurant. It's London in a micrcosm, this bricolage pub.
