Bermondsey’s Grange Road is suffused with the history of London, so it’s heartening to see evidence of sensitive rather than rampant redevelopment when it comes to the area’s many heritage pubs. Grange Pub, named for the ward and the famous Grange Road upon which it finds itself is one such charmer. The proprietors have taken on what they describe as a fallen star of a pub and brought it back to life – adding a few contemporary necessities (wood-fired pizza oven, burgers and international fare as well as British classics) – and creating a cosy atmosphere that’ll have you calling the Grange your home away from home.
The menu at Grange Pub changes regularly, but you can rely on finding a wide variety of British classics rubbing shoulders with international dishes put together by head chef Lisa. Naturally, this sensitively refurbished Bermondsey boozer does a good Sunday roast and line-caught haddock and chips, but you can also get your sticky fingers on house burgers, European and international starters and mains, and pizza fresh from the wood-fired oven built out in the garden. The garden itself doubles as a gorgeous all-weather beer garden that’s ideal for sipping on a pint or one of the Grange’s wines when London lets the sun in.
Come the weekend, Grange Pub opens up its all-day menu for late breakfasts, lazy brunches and lunches, ranging from simple fodder like the house-made granola right through to refined surprises like the ratatouille and duck egg with grilled veggies and manchego cheese. Grange Pub takes dinner bookings seven nights a week, bookings for lunch on Fridays, and its flexible Grange Road premises are also sought after in Bermondsey as a venue for hosting large groups and private parties. Ultimately, the Grange is a fantastic example of a new breed of London pub – confidently marrying tradition and innovation.
Lovely little local pub to us. The menu is surprisingly varied and the home-cooked pizzas are delicious. They also have a great selection of beers on tap. Definitely a local favourite. Well recommended.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Food was excellent, especially the chips! the fish curry was pretty good too. So good we're going again this evening!
Fantastic and welcoming staff who have the time to chat and have a giggle. Great food, good value and ambiance. Will definitely return to try the rest of the menu
Great location, the service was excellent and the food was great and good quality. The pub dog was very friendly. I would definitely recommend a visit.
We did a last minute booking for four and were very pleased to be able to have a garden table. The service was excellent, waiters were friendly, efficient and knowledgable. The portions were good, menu had a wide selection, prices were reasonable, atmoshphere was relaxed. A good night had by all. Can certainly recommend it, from the garden area, you wouldn't guess the restaurant was on a horrifically noisy street.
Great place with friendly and professional staff. I live in the area and this is a place we go very often to enjoy a lovely meal or just a beer. The food is fresh and always delicious. Agreeable environment with a garden for the warm evenings. The staff's attention to detail is much appreciated.
The decor inside is quite nice and the selection of beer is very good. On the night we dined the service was incredibly poor and we had to wait a long time to put in our order and receive our food. We have only dined here once so I am not sure if this was a one off due to staff issues. The food was ok but in terms of price/value there are a lot better options in the area. All in all it is a nice place for a drink but there are better options for food.
Bright and spacious pub on Grange Road in the heart of Bermondsey. Superior menu to most neighbourhood pubs. Wood fired pizza oven in the garden another fine attraction. High ceiling with large scale, striking artwork on interior wall adds interest. Table service. Recommended.
Unfortunately, the food was not good for half of the table and the device was a little sloppy. Which. Was a shame. The waiter was new but to be honest that is no excuse. At a minimum he should ask if we want drinks and if there are six at the table he should have six lunch orders. Well come back again to see if this was a one off. Hope this helps. Dan
We were a group of five and had a great time at the Grange. Delicious food (pizzas, baked camembert, curry, pies...), good beer selection and, super-efficient friendly staff and decent prices. We'll definitely come back
