40 Maltby Street
An old, dimly lit Bermondsey railway arch may sound like John Luther’s idea of a good time, but it should really be yours. 40 Maltby Street is easily (and seemingly effortlessly), one of London’s most consistently lovely wine bars and restaurants. Inside, its changing small plates and laidback atmosphere makes it a guaranteed good time, whether you’re lazily eating plums and green beans or a terrine alongside a low-intervention bottle of something or other. They also dole out takeaway sandwiches on weekends that are, without doubt, worth travelling far and wide for.
