Edwins is a brilliant, low-key gem of a restaurant, with great food and a cosy ambience that hits the right spots. The discrete entrance is hidden up a flight of stairs by Borough station, and inside, there’s a townhouse-meets-country manor vibe going on. As for food, you’ll find some very tasty and slightly fancy bistro-style dishes on the menu, and great drinks to match - get the braised lamb shank and fish stew. They make a good negroni, and it’s also great for groups and low-key meals for when you want something nice without trying too hard.

El Pastor serves Mexico City-style tacos in a former railway arch near Borough Market. While it can be very good, it can also be a disappointment.
Padella serves brilliant, freshly made pasta at very good prices. If you’re in London Bridge or Borough Market, make this a part of your plan.
