About the restaurant

Located right in the middle of Southwark, Bermondsey and London Bridge stations, Lupins is one of a long line of understated Bermondsey restaurants preparing great food in small but smart spaces. The dining room’s breezy, pastel interiors mean it’s a great spot for a long lunch when the sun’s shining.

Co-founders Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke met while working at Medlar in Chelsea. They focus on pan-European sharing plates alongside a great wine list mainly sourced by importer Smashing Wines, which showcases eco-friendly and forward-thinking producers.

The restaurant describes its food ethos as “seasonal British tasting plates with a sunshine influence”, meaning a supply chain of high-quality British ingredients but with an eye on the flavours and flourishes of further afield.

Critic reviews

The Guardian

The menu changes frequently; there are always lighter dishes, many starring vegetables


This fresh, bright and eminently reasonable place comes from Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke, a pair who moved on from the highly thought-of Medlar in Chelsea to start The Cooking Collective.

Time Out

At Lupins, a seasonal British small plates restaurant just outside SE1’s Flat Iron Square, each dish that comes is just as stunning at the last.

The Nudge

Right from the outset you can see the neat little twists hitting the more traditional British dishes, which are all served as sharing-style small plates
