It was still a relatively new venue when we visited for a friend's birthday on a Thursday. She had managed to reserve a section of the bar. Since it wasn't too crowded or noisy, it was a relaxed affair. We loved the canapés on offer, especially the goat's cheese. The staff were friendly and the measures of wine were generous. During office party season, I am confident more people will make a path for this charming venue set in a Victorian viaduct.


I hadn't really thought about this venue for a night out but I ended up having an amazing Saturday night, stayed till 3am dancing and having a great time.


Cute and quirky venue by Southwark station. Good service, lovely atmosphere and even a beer pong table!

A little hard to find at first, but once you know where it is, you’re bound to keep going back.

I had the best night here a couple of weeks ago drinks with friends but what made it really stand out was the artwork, simply amazing! Must come back!


My girlfriend and I had a TimeOut deal here to try out the newly opened SAMA with two courses and a glass of prosecco. It was a great deal for around £12; however I felt the food was very average. The starters were stronger that the main in general although they don’t win any points for presentation. The squid was okay; lightly battered and fried but lacked any real flavour. The jerk wings were better - two pieces of chicken wings that had good charcoaling however again, lacked much of the jerk flavour and could have been spicier. The seafood linguini was disappointing as it’s such a simple dish but the pasta was overcooked - but one thing you couldn’t fault was the portion size of this main. Service here is attentive in such a big big space and given the space, i think it would be best suited for an event of some sort whether it be for a work function or an opening.

What we had:

  • Salt and Pepper Squid - aioli mayo
  • Jerk Wings - sour cream
  • Seafood Linguini - prawns, mussels, squid, cherry tomatoes

Tip: come for a few casual work drinks and check out some of the interesting art on the walls

Good For: casual work drinks, business event, large groups


Launch party at the new bar/restaurant opening in Bankside.

Good atmosphere and the canapés were a sample of the menu to be served there. May have to go back to try the food as they weren't bad at all!

Wheelchair access: The entrance is up a bit of a hill and the road is cobbled. There is a smooth path on the left if you can get up the kerb, but once you're in, accessible toilets are on the same level so it's fine.
