Southwark Guide

This is a guide compiled by Chelgate, introducing you to the Bermondsey area, our favourite restaurants and bars, and some places to avoid!

Chelgate in Bermondsey

Chelgate moved into our current headquarters at 1 Tanner Street in 1990s, Bermondsey was beginning its transformation into the fashionable, attractive area it is today. We’ve seen it change, and as we’ve watched it mutate, we’ve kept notes on its progress in the form of our Southwark Guide, below, giving curious outsiders an insider’s guide to the good food, gastropubs and dive bars of this innovative quarter of the city.

If you want to learn more about the area, you could do worse than following SE1 on Twitter and on Facebook – they’ll keep you updated on local gossip, news, redevelopments, events and more, from the Bermondsey Bomb to the latest ship to come sailing under Tower Bridge.
