“Pasta and wine lovers can enjoy a reasonably priced, top quality meal at this wonderful restaurant on beautiful Bermondsey Street,” Homegirl London.

We moved just around the corner from Bermondsey Street two years ago in February and have meant to visit Flour and Grape since then. Because we usually go for a walk in the evenings, we tend to eat a bit further afield. Now the weather is dull and dreary, we’ve decided to try all the eateries closer to home. We’re lucky to have such great restaurants close to our home!

Flour and Grape Restaurant Menu

On our visit, the menu featured a selection of small plates, including Nocellara Olives, Bread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Green Leaf Salad, Burrata, Smoked Salmon and Salumi. I tried the Radish Salad, which featured crunchy Radishes, Pickled Apple, and a delightful Crème Fraiche Dressing with a sprinkling of chives.

Homeboy opted for the Grilled Cheese Sandwich as a starter with Fontina and Parmesan. This was white sliced bread toasted with the cheese melted inside.

This restaurant focuses on homemade pasta paired with wines. You’ll see them making the fresh pasta in the window on Bermondsey Street, a great way to entice you. We shared two pasta types, including the simple yet delicious Ravioli with Ricotta, Pumpkin, Almond, Parmesan, Sage, and Butter.

The other dish was Fazzoletti (handkerchief pasta) with Spinach, Mascarpone, and Nutmeg, another beautiful plate of fresh pasta. Some other vegetarian options included Bucatini with Tomato Sauce, Linguine with Roasted Beetroot and Ricotta or Taglierini with Preserved Truffle. Roasted Pork Shoulder, Beef Short Rib Ragu, and Monkfish with Tomato were other sauce options paired with fresh pasta.

The pasta dishes weren’t huge, so we had room for dessert. We shared the Chocolate and Hazelnut Budino with Sea Salt. I loved this glass pot of velvety, smooth, rich chocolate mousse; wow, what a treat. The Lemon Tart with Crème Fraiche was refreshing with the perfect citrus tang. Other desserts included Tiramisu Gelato, Strawberry Sorbet and a selection of Cheese with Crab Apple Jelly and Crackers.

To give you an idea of price points, Small Plates are £2-9, Pasta Mains are £7.50-12.50, and Desserts £5-6. The prices are very reasonable given the interiors and quality of the food. The menu recommends wine pairings for each pasta dish. As you’d expect, they have plenty of Italian wine to sample. The website highlights which region the wine is from on a map. Ask a staff member for recommendations if you want some assistance or recommendations. I ordered myself the Bermondsey Gin and Tonic, which was excellent.

Flour and Grape Restaurant Interiors

The interiors have an industrial vibe. The dining space has a wooden floor, vintage-style tin tile ceiling, exposed brick walls, and industrial light fittings. The seating is comfy, thanks to the button-back leather banquettes. Some of the seating is in the form of high counter tables with stools. There is a large bar running along one wall clad in reclaimed wood. It’s a buzzy place perfect for a business lunch, catching up with your best friend or a date night dinner.
