I’d walked past the Southwark Playhouse a few times before and been sufficiently intrigued but never ventured in. I’m so glad I was finally brought here on a date the other week as it’s a real find. It’s recently been refurbished and so offers a new bar with that trendy urban feel to it and a beautifully intimate theatre.
This beautiful little place brings a touch of French flair to an otherwise unloved and rather bleak corner of London between Elephant and Castle and Kennington.
I was brought here on a date a not so long ago and I have to admit, I was very sceptical on the walk there but I couldn’t have been more wrong. We hadn’t thought to make a reservation, thinking that it wouldn’t be necessary but alas, the place was completely packed. This converted pub oozes French eccentricity and is wonderfully warm and cosy. Loving the atmosphere, we decided to set ourselves up in the bar and take advantage of the live jazz music on offer.
