Find the best restaurants and cafés in London Bridge

Eating out in London Bridge is all about knowing where to look. Magdalen, which is easy to miss on the busy Tooley Street, serves outstanding British food that shows a real attention to detail.

Magdalen

Magdalen is low-key enough to feel like a well-kept secret, but it’s also a favourite with clued-up City diners who know their gribiche from their gravlax.
