    Fresh seafood & beer.: Brew Wharf

    by Steve-H Updated Jun 8, 2006

    There are restaurants at Borough, the highly acclaimed Roast has recently opened in the new floral hall above the market, but for me the best is the Brew Wharf. A new restaurant and part of the Vinopolis complex it has it's own micro brewery currently producing two great beers.
    The Borough area is steeped in history, Shakespeares Globe theatre stood here and it's recreation is also here, the yard at 50 Borough High Street has London's last remaining half-timbered house with an overhanging upper floor, a public pillory stood in the middle of the same street until 1620. The puritans closed the theatres in 1642 and the Bankside area became a centre of industry and commerce. In the 17th century the playwright Thomas Dakker described Borough High Street as `a continued ale house with not a shop to be seen between` ahh, those were the days.

    Favorite Dish: Brew Wharf is to be found under the massive Victorian arches by the Thames at Bankside, Southwark. It is the public restaurant in the wine attraction "Vinopolis".
    Created by award winning (Michelin, Carlton, timeout etc) restaurateurs Claudio Pulze and Trevor Gulliver. The food and service are paramount but with the wonderful opportunity to offer a great beers from around the world. The food is robust in places and very cosmopolitan, there are european influences and some great classics, shellfish feature prominently, imagine sitting on the terrace with a foaming pint of beer and a pint pint of prawns to tackle, i could easily pass a few hours this way.
