Overview

LASSCO Ropewalk consists of seven Victorian railway arches that range along an enclosed and private yard in Bermondsey, South East London. Equidistant from London Bridge and Bermondsey Underground stations and sited on an old Rope Walk, the yard has grown over the last twenty years to include an iconic street market and three restaurants.

The three restaurants that call Ropewalk home include Bar Tozino a Spanish bodega and jamoneria, Little Bird Gin‘s pop up cocktail bar and most recent addition, Boru, a Japanese restaurant and cocktail bar. All three were designed, built, decorated and are endorsed by LASSCO.

Maltby Street Market

Maltby Street Market is the weekly street food and provisions market stretching the length of our narrow Ropewalk site in Bermondsey, South East London.

From a modest start the market has grown somewhat haphazardly into inhabiting the role of both laboratory and proving ground for London’s burgeoning street food movement. Stalls are arranged along one side of a narrow private yard while bars and eateries are nestled within the seven Victorian Railway Arches that run the length of the site.

A true original, the quality and diversity of our traders is a source of particular pride to us while through a gently rotating roster of visiting stall-holders we work hard to maintain freshness and novelty.

Bar Tozino

Bar Tozino Bermondsey is a hidden gem for those who love jamon and good wine, you can expect to be in for a night to remember at this Spanish-inspired restaurant and bar. With jamon literally hanging from the roof, then carved in front you, this is the place to gather your crew, order several rounds of small plates and wine and settle in for some seriously delicious fare.

The space itself features wooden furnishings, low hanging lights and an outdoor dining area which matches the menu perfectly. Speaking of, keep an eye out for Cocido de la Casa chorizo and chickpea stew; Gambas of king prawns cooked in garlic, chilli & lime and the classic tapas dishes of Patatas Bravas roasted potatoes with spicy tomato sauce & ali-oli. Located under the railway arches of Maltby Street in Bermondsey, Bar Tozino is a firm favourite for very good reason.

Little Bird Gin

After much taste testing, feedback, fun and frivolity, Team Little Bird Gin and friends hit upon the recipe for a new London Dry Gin. Pink-grapefruit, sweet orange peel and ginger, plus seven more botanicals all contribute to our smooth citrusy taste.

Those three little words on your bottle tell you that the botanicals are natural and distilled along with the spirit to give a purer and high quality spirit. London Dry Gin means that no artificial flavourings or colourings are allowed before or after distillation.

While that term London Dry is a nod to the style of your gin, strangely, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s actually made in London too. But rest assured, Little Bird is, of course, south London born and bred in our very own distillery in Peckham Rye, London.

About Lassco

Established in London’s East End, LASSCO has dealt in reclamation and salvage since 1979. Bridging the gap between the demolition trade and architectural design, we connect customers with rescued relics that make for fascinating interiors.

Boru

Boru is Ropewalk’s newest addition. This fiercely independent restaurant is a Japanese-inspired oasis in the middle of what can be, at times a frantic and imposing food market. Manager Amo and his team have miraculously created a calm and inviting space that is far more intimate than any of his Maltby Street neighbours. The light, airy open plan kitchen and well stacked bar frame Head Chef Tenzin, the centre of attention. Born and raised in Tibet, he grew up home cooking with chilli bases, soy, turmeric and nettles. This diffusion of ingredients marry with flavours that are quintessentially Japanese and others that will remind you of East Asian cookery. When combined Boru produces food that is fresh and new but unmistakably Japanese.    

It’s first come first served and with only 30 intimate covers available. The menu is fortified by an extensive cocktail and wine list, however it’s the Ramen that takes centre stage.
