Definitely not dry January

Fizz On

Ah January. You’re given a hard time. It’s not your fault that it’s your turn to shine just after a month of epic partying. We’re big fans of January here.

In fact, January has many perks of it’s own – like a free swig from the Village Fountain (our house carbonated cocktails for the uninitiated) with your dinner bookings from Sunday to Wednesday. Not so bad, eh? Or even better if you round up a group of 12 friends and book into the bar, we’ll make sure you’re greeted by a magnum of prosecco on ice.

Fizz On is available from Sunday to Wednesday all throughout January, just mention when booking

HOPPY HOUR

When you have to make tough calls, like choosing between a beer or a cocktail, we try to help you out. In fact, we’ve addressed that particular problem full on with our Hoppy Hour menu – a different sort of happy hour for pint-lovers.

Five refreshing beery cocktails made with fine produce from local Bermondsey breweries, plus other temptations from the tap, bottle and fizz departments.

JANE LONG

Costica Acsinte was a documentary photographer during World War 1, and when he returned to Slobozia in his home country of Romania, he took photos of the local residents.

Fast forward nearly a century, to Australia, where artist Jane Long has discovered Acsinte’s archive of glass plate photographs, and has reimagined and digitalised them in colour.

The results are playful and often surreal scenes that extend around classic looking subjects.

See Jane Long’s images.

DRIVERS IN THE 1980S

Chris Dorley-Brown had the foresight to take quite ordinary photographs in the 1980’s of people driving around London – perhaps knowing that a few decades later they’d be brilliant relics of urban nostalgia.

In fact, his original intention was to document the privatisation of Rolls Royce, but his preoccupation with people meant he captured so much more than just the automotive changes of the time.

Available as a book via Hoxton Mini Press

MICHELLE KINGDOM

Michelle Kingdom uses embroidery to bring memories, literary snippets and mythologies to life. She calls them psychological landscapes – her persistent inner voices made real.

Each piece is pretty small in scale, but they all pack a lot of intricate stitches. She uses a needle more expressively than tradition dictates – as more of a sketching tool.

Kingdom explores relationships, domesticity, self-perception with subtlety through her beautiful needlework.

  • BEAUTY OF BERMONDSEY FILM COMPETITION

    Once, not so long ago, our little wedge of London was a scrapbook of slums, rundown factories and destitution.  In fact, Bermondsey has pretty much always been a hotbed of disrepute – home to the most undesirable industries of industrial Britain, with the unfortunate folk to staff them. Anyhow. Now it’s not. There’s something, however, […] Read More
