The Leather Uppers at The Leather Exchange on Urbanspoon

Square Meal

The area around Bermondsey street is littered with some exceptional restaurants. From the famous Jose, Pizarro and Zucca to the lesser known but equally good 40 Maltby St, Magdalen and Elliot’s. For those looking to enjoy a gastropub experience, most would think The Garrisson in the obvious choice. However,  the Leather Exchange is around the corner and offer some proper gastropub grub as well and is certainly worth a try.

We live around the area and have been to the Leather Exchange several times. The other day,while strolling past, I read on the sign outside that they had a pulled pork burger on the menu. Given that I’m having some serious burger cravings of late and have had good experiences at the  the Leather Exchange before, it was an easy decision….we had to visit soon :)
