Two Spoons: Southeast's most exciting new bar.

A cosy little café by day, we’re here for the night: a showcase of its new list of 10 cocktails inspired by local landmarks and figures. Inside, you could be in Paris with the darkened, intimate atmosphere - almost enough to make you forget that just outside are London’s rainy streets and not a mild, leafy Parisian boulevard. Almost. The new menu is a definitively local affair with one important...

Behind The Names: London Borough of Southwark

Behind The Names: London Borough of Southwark

In the third installment of our series explaining the origins of the names of the areas of South London we will be focusing on the great London Borough of Southwark. Along with Lambeth, Lewisham and Greenwich it forms part of what we like to call the 'four shark teeth' of South London.

You'll see, you will all see. Anyway, less about fearsome fish and more about the reason behind the names of areas. Southwark is probably the installment we've looking forward to most because of some of the really curious names in the borough, like Denmark Hill or Elephant and Castle - frankly, we really cannot wait to explain it.

In this instance we're going to be talking about the Anglican Southwark Cathedral
