The best restaurants in Borough are generally in and around Borough Market. Take, for instance, Tapas Brindisa. They use the finest Spanish ingredients to create tapas dishes that are at once familiar and surprising. Wright Brothers Oyster & Porter House combines super-speedy service with outstanding seafood. And don't forget the many stalls in the market itself, which offer little slices of food heaven to take away. But not all the best restaurants are in the market. A quick walk down Borough High Street will lead you to Hiba, a warm, lively Lebanese restaurant.

Tapas Brindisa

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 2/4

The upsurge in Spanish food quality in London since the 1990s can in part be dated from the arrival in Borough Market of food importers Brindisa.

Wright Brothers Oyster & Porter House

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4

Wright Brothers is very much an eat-and-run sort of place, with all seating at high-backed stools, and efficient waitresses operating at speed despite the cramped conditions.

As the hordes of Borough Marketeers stuff their faces while standing up, above them in the elegant mezzanine Floral Hall is the more refined eating option – the staunchly British Roast.

Applebee's Café

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4

This Borough Market stalwart, with a wet-fish counter at the front and a long narrow dining space behind, is a lively and convivial spot for some reliable fishy fare.

On weekday lunchtimes, this swanky glass pavilion overlooking Southwark Cathedral and Borough Market is full of suits and well-heeled tourists.
