There’s an array of gleaming and somewhat questionable-looking bars within the vicinity of Deptford station. Because all bars part of glassy new build developments are questionable by virtue of looking like a shiny Be @ One you’d find at Terminal 5. In Buster Mantis, you’ll find a lower-key local spot under the arches that suits cocktails with a side of salt cod fritters. You’ll want to lean more on the booze than the bites, but, if you’re looking for somewhere dimly lit and open post-midnight on the weekend, it’s a decent shout.
