Restaurant Story


Restaurant Story is a Bermondsey hotspot using farm-to-fork ingredients, independent wine producers and local craft ales. 

Chef Patron Tom Sellers tells his story and the story of British food through an ever-evolving tasting menu of seasonal dishes. The restaurant gained its Michelin star after five months of opening in 2013 and has retained it ever since.

As a guest at Story, you will not be presented with a menu on arrival. They will build your meal around your preferences and will typically include a mixture of Story classic dishes alongside new and seasonally inspired creations. They can cater for vegans without making us feel different. 

The ambiance is minimalist and modern, the tables intimate and well prepared with a book, freshly starched linen and a menu the likes of which we have never seen. It's also been listed as one of the most romantic restaurants in London. This young chef has re-invented the whole experience of eating, creating his own version of everything, which is fresh, creative, imaginative and completely memorable in every detail.

It is so refreshing to be served a completely new menu, every course arrived with serenade and an explanation of what was being set down.
