Bunch of Grapes
Address: 2 St Thomas Street, London SE1 9RS
Telephone: 020 7403 2070
Traditional Young’s pub close to London Bridge stations, Borough Market and Southwark Cathedral.
The building has obviously been there for some time and the pub has a traditional feel with old tables and the wooden floor. The lively downstairs bar area has a number of partitions which break the pub up into sections. Upstairs there is a spacious lounge area that is more relaxed. Out the back there is a tiny courtyard garden.
Since the Bunch of Grapes is a Young’s pub you’ve got to expect a predominantly Young’s and Wells real ale selection with the odd guest and seasonal. You may even find Winter Warmer here during appropriate months – one of my favourite beers. There are usually 3 or 4 beers available and they seem well-kept.
Food is available every day from 12:00 until 9:00pm (7:00pm Sundays) but I’ve never eaten here. Children are allowed in the upstairs rooms and child-sized portions are available from the menu.
The London Bridge area is blessed with many good real ale pubs – eg the Market porter, the Rake, etc – but the Bunch of Grapes is worth a look.
