The name changed from The Dairy to Bermondsey Larder just weeks after opening; according to the website, nothing else has changed.
Harden's survey result
With a “taster menu that’s second to none”, Robin and Sarah Gill’s crack kitchen team have settled in well to their new home in a Bermondsey ‘aparthotel’. They moved over from Clapham’s The Dairy, which did not survive the pandemic, but a taste of the latter’s “imaginative, skillful small-plate cooking” using carefully sourced seasonal ingredients is still available here.
“A great team and food ethos” won praise for The Dairy in Clapham (RIP), and when the pandemic forced its closure, Robin and Sarah Gill found their crew a new Bermondsey berth within a recently opened ‘aparthotel’ called Bermonds Locke. Otherwise, the aim was to maintain its hip style and “skilful small-plate cooking”, and they seem to be on the way to succeeding: in an October 2020 review, Jimi Famurewa found that “something born from frantic necessity can still be a vessel for pure, boundless joy” that “blazes with a rare confidence and immense likeability”. Our early reporters were a bit more measured but still upbeat: “ate outside on a bit of a windswept patio: but the food and service were great!”.
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
