Hot new London restaurant openings

Bob’s Lobster Wine & Kitchen

Lobster lovers rejoice! Crustacean shack Bob’s Lobster has gone permanent, having set up shop under the arches at the recently revamped London Bridge station. Starting life selling lobster rolls all over London from an adorable red and white vintage VW campervan, Bob’s is the first of many restaurants to open under the arches at London Bridge.

In addition to their divine lobby rolls you’ll find the likes of smoked trout with salmon roe and ginger; lobster mac ‘n’ cheese; Dorset crab tortellini; smoked River Exe mussels; and charred cauliflower with ancho chilli and pickled mushrooms on the menu. Borough Wines are behind the drinks offering, which includes 100 wines by the bottle and 15 by the glass, with a special focus on vintage Rieslings.

Fans of the original camper van will be happy to hear that the 1957 beauty will be given pride of place inside the restaurant where chefs will be serving oysters for £1 each during happy hour.
