José Tapas Bar was my first solo venture: a tapas and sherry bar on Bermondsey Street in London. It’s small and cosy, inspired by the bustling tapas bars around La Boquería market in Barcelona and the traditional tapas bars in the hot, dusty towns and villages of Andalucía. The daily menu depends on what looks good at the market on the day. You’ll see a mix of new dishes as well as old favourites. We maintain a diverse wine and sherry list from both established and small producers of Spain. You will find wines and sherries here that you won’t see anywhere else. Come on down and have a pincho!
José tapas and sherry bar is intimate, cosy but always busy, which you’d expect from a traditional Spanish tapas bar. Owned by chef, José Pizarro, the menu clearly has influence from his experience working in some of London’s most prestigious Spanish restaurants, which is why it’s become so popular, so quickly. The menu is often adding new additions along with old favourites (which are some of the best on this list). These include the seabream, duck egg and Ibérico Pork Fillet, along with an impressive wine and sherry list. Unfortunately they don’t take bookings but you can enjoy snacks at the bar while you wait.
