In the 18th and 19th Centuries Bermondsey was a bustling industrial centre due to the growth of the leather trade. The tanning pits of Bermondsey had a supply of water from the tidal Thames and were used as a motive power by tanners.
50 Bermondsey Street housed a tannery for many years but following World War II and the collapse of the river trade in the 1960s the building sat derelict for many years. In the 1980s the area was extensively redeveloped. 50 Bermondsey Street became a chocolate factory until it was taken over by Delfina Studios in 1992 and turned into a restaurant and gallery space. Camm and Hooper took over the space in 2013. The white box space of Delfina Studios was extensively refurbished by Russell Sage Studios into a quirky old-fashioned gymnasium inspired restaurant, bar and event space.
Open 7 days a week, Tanner and Co is open for every occasion, be it breakfast to fuel your working day, a business lunch, celebratory dinner, wind down drinks or to kick back at the weekend.
