JOSÉ SHERRY & TAPAS BAR
Situated on a corner of the now trendy area of Bermondsey Street this cosy little tapas bar serves up excellent authentic tapas. Opened by José Pizarro with his eponymous restaurant, Pizarro, further up the street.
José is a buzzing spot for an atmospheric lunch or dinner.
This is not a sit down restaurant, but a Spanish bar, where you go to have a drink and some tapas, standing or sitting on stools with a barrel for a table. There are also window stools looking out onto the street.
