Review: Flour & Grape, Bermondsey Street | FOOD

London is having a pasta party and I have to say, I’m absolutely loving it so I was excited to try out Flour & Grape, the no-frills Italian pasta and wine restaurant on Bermondsey Street.

I’ve never been to pasta restaurant, Padella in London Bridge (although I’m dying to go but the queues to get in are horrendous), but I imagine that this is a pretty good alternative and it’s only down the road from Padella.

Every time I’ve visited it’s always been really busy, with people queuing almost out of the door and I’ve even seen people being turned away so I’ve always felt really lucky that I’ve managed to get in! On this visit, we were seated at the bar because the restaurant was absolutely packed. The atmosphere is super cosy, with exposure brick walls, mirrors everywhere, wooden tables and candles dotted about the restaurant which give it an intimate feel. I can imagine Flour & Grape would be a good first date restaurant because its not too formal or stuffy, but nice and relaxed. On this occasion, I visited with my gal pal Amber.

Flour & Grape – What We Ordered

We started by ordering a bottle of Gavi (£30) to share while we pondered the menu and decided what we fancied to eat. The menu isn’t huge, in fact, it’s refreshingly simple, split up into a small plates section and a pasta section. They also recommend wine with each dish which you can buy by the glass, by a carafe or by the bottle. To start we ordered two dishes from the small plates menu; the bread selection which came with a little pot of balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil (£3.50) and we also chose the burrata (£6.50) which was really creamy and went perfectly with the bread and wine. The bread was really delicious and the olive oil was amazing and so flavourful. I could’ve quite happily just ordered a selection of the small plates for dinner!

For mains, we opted for a plate of pasta each and both chose the Taglierini (£12.50); a deliciously rich truffle pasta with butter emulsion and cured egg yolk. It really was out of this world! Be mindful that it’s a giant plate of pasta, the portion sizes definitely aren’t stingy and I think that we actually could’ve shared a plate of pasta between us, especially after our starters but we were a bit greedy! On a previous visit I’ve also tried the Fettuccine (£10.50) which comes with a beef short-rib ragu sauce and this was really tasty but the truffle pasta was the real winner for me.

We wanted to order dessert but after all that food we decided we were far too full to manage any pudding so I’ll have to try the desserts when I next go back!


Flour & Grape – 5/5

I’m a big fan, the food is delicious, the cosy and relaxed atmosphere is great and prices are reasonable. I will 100% be back!

Food – 5/5

Service – 4/5

Decor / Ambience – 5/5

The total cost for two people was £71.50 including service.
