I came across this promotional blurb about The Garrison (aka The York in an earlier life).
“Oh how we wish we lived in Bermondsey, then we could call this gem of a pub our local. We’d stop in for a regular drink at least once a week and treat ourselves to a slap up meal every month. It’s the kind of place that we’d like to claim as a second home with a convivial atmosphere, plenty of drinks variety and great food – though the prices would prevent us from making this a daily ritual. They even have their own cinema in the basement, available to book for private parties. With eateries like this, along with nearby Village East, The Bermondsey Kitchen and the Delfina Studio Cafe, soon to be joined by The Hide Bar… oh how we wish we lived in Bermondsey.”
Some of the old regulars must be spinning in their graves!
I added this photo on 3 Novermber 2008. It was sent to me by a relative of the former publicans, Ron and Cyril Daniel.
