Bermondsey restaurateurs Angela Hartnett and Jose Pizarro have teamed up to launch a new community initiative, which will see local businesses offer Eat Out To Help Out-style discounts during September.
The “Shop, Eat & Drink” scheme aims to boost and maintain business in Bermondsey Street, a local hospitality hub where both Hartnett and Pizarro run restaurants. Over the next month, a collection of restaurants, bars, shops and services based on the high street will offer a series of discounts on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. “Bermondsey Street has been a hub of activity for many months, with locals loyally supporting all the Bermondsey restaurants and independent businesses via takeaway and more recently through the Eat Out scheme. We’re proud to be a part of this community spirit and hope that by all joining together during September, we can keep momentum going and the street buzzing,” said Hartnett. “Community is very important for me and nowhere is it more profound than on Bermondsey Street. I am so happy to have all businesses coming together to support one another” said Pizarro, who also lives nearby.
