"the Garrison comes Michelin recommended and its menu sparkles"Review Rating: Reviewed by T.A.O
Who knew what the residents in this area did before the Garrison turned up on their doorstep to bless them with a local that feels like something off a movie set. Actually, they probably went to one of the other two pubs nearby, but hey ho.
If you’re into pubs that take their style seriously then the Garrison is for you, its stained wood conjures the look of chic beach huts and in contrast you have the emerald tiles that add a built in gleam to the whole. It’s relaxed and informal and attracts the type of crowd that you’d expect to appreciate its look, whether that’s the hip locals, foodies or workers from nearby London Bridge and Borough. Speaking of foodies, the Garrison comes Michelin recommended and its menu sparkles with alternative concoctions that take in the likes of squid ink gnocchi, wild venison haunch steak and the famous Garrison steak sandwich. Prices are restaurant high, however the quality doesn’t disappoint. There are also duck and goose roasts on Sundays.
In terms of entertainment, the music’s carefully picked to float about and there’s the cinema lounge below that screens films and hosts overspill from above as well the occasional private event.
The only shame about the Garrison is that it can’t be everyone’s local, but then again it might be all the sweeter after a journey.
