The Garrison is a gastro pub on Bermondsey street, a street bristling with gastro pubs. The Garrison is decorated in what can only be described as shabby chic style, with the emphasis on chic, tassled lampshades, wall paper and distressed wooden tables with mismatched chairs. Perfect for city dwellers who want a country pub but can’t be bothered to go to the country. The food is good and hearty but not cheap (about £10 for a main course) with good vegetarian options. Service is friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. It is always busy and tables are nearly always reserved but you can often occupy a table before its reservation time so the earlier you go the better. Recommended, but only if you like the whole gastro pub thing.
