St Christopher’s Inn – genuinely welcomes Tastecard

My sister-in-law and niece are visiting this weekend so – along with K – we visited the Design Museum at London Bridge this afternoon, followed by food and drinks at St Christopher’s Inn on Borough High Street (well, after a cheeky winter warmer or two at The Draft House).

There are many traditional pubs serving real ales and gastro-style, British food around London Bridge, SE1. St Christopher’s Inn sets itself apart with competitive prices and by genuinely welcoming Tastecard (ie. 50% discount given off food to Tastecard holders, and you don’t have to book weeks in advance to benefit but can arrange pretty much on the spot).

The menu features traditional British favourites like fish and chips (filleted fish in beer batter with mushy peas and tartare sauce), bangers and mash (Lincolnshire sausages from the Boston Sausage Company at Borough Market) and Sunday roasts, all around the £8.00 price mark.

Close to both London Bridge station and Borough Market, the dining room at St Christopher’s Inn is furnished with basic, wooden floors and tables, and candle-lit – when it’s dark – giving it a cosy, homely feel. Serving staff are friendly and helpful and at Tastecard prices (about £4 a main course) you can’t go wrong.
