Review on Southwark Rooms
This cool, fashionable Southwark Rooms rose from the ashes of a down-at-heel Borough Market boozer and is now one of the top local choices for cocktails, private parties and late-night frivolity. Food is also a popular draw in the airy ground-floor room, which has been stylishly designed with retro wallpaper, exposed brickwork and sofas.
The menu promises an eclectic mix of small bites and finger food (tortillas, Middle Eastern dips, Caribbean-style chicken satay, Chinese duck pancakes, spring rolls and the like), plus salads (grilled vegetable and goats' cheese with pesto dressing), pasta and more filling options such as slow-roast lamb shank with cabbage and spring onion mash.
The dimly lit basement, which has been done out in lush quasi-oriental style, comes into its own during the evening; it's an ideal venue for all manner of corporate functions and personal bashes.
