Well well, the area around Maltby Street near Bermondsey has certainly levelled up since the last time we visited. Now christened The Ropewalk, it’s more like a mini food market, with the suppliers in the archways spilling onto the narrow lane to feed the through traffic. From wine bars to coffee, cocktails and local cheeses, it’s a great place to hang out on a sunny Saturday lunchtime.

The Kernel Brewery has relocated from around the corner into this bigger space, where you can bring a picnic to enjoy with your brew.

I was excited to find that the Lassco outpost here has become a proper showroom to display their salvaged flooring, lighting, bathroom fittings and more. There’s even a cute resident kitty!

Round the corner on Druid Street on the walk to London Bridge, the railway arches house a fantastic fruit & veg shop, St John bakery (get there early for the legendary doughnuts), Neal’s Yard Dairy and so on. Skip the Borough market crowds on Saturdays and head here instead!

  1. Looks like a very nice place to while away a few hours of a weekend, must add it to the ‘to visit’ list…

    p.s. I’ve always admired your photos but this new camera is especially good – the pictures really seem to ‘pop’.

  2. seems like you’re talking about the two different locations, right? The new one an the old? I only see photos of the old location, but then Monmouth is at the new one..bit confused. Though, beautiful photos!!

      Yeah, sorry I wasn’t clear – Ropewalk as a ‘destination’ is new to me (the top pics with the relocated Kernel, Lassco etc all fancied up with bunting and so on) but the fruit & veg etc on Druid St isn’t. Can’t find out much more about Ropewalk online though…
