Simon The Tanner


Simon the Tanner is a new kind of local pub by pop-up pioneers, Disappearing Dining Club, open and evolving now.

This cosy local pub, tucked away between Borough tube station and Bermondsey High Street has been reimagined as a home for great food, fantastic beer, great wines, spirits, and Hi-Fi sound.

Vibes are light and airy by day, dark and candlelit by night. There's table service, seasonal dining and tasty bar bites, friendly staff, and an audiophile sound system playing an eclectic mix of sounds throughout. 

You can book for dinner, book for drinks, or book for lunch at the weekends. They do a fab Sunday roast, and there's a quiz every Tuesday.

They'll be launching Simon the Tanner in March 2023, but it is trading now.
