Southwark is home to In Horto, the latest restaurant venture from the tvg hospitality group. Inspired by nature and fuelled by fire, this evergreen oasis is a gastronomic bolthole for those in the know.
In Horto has removed their wooden shutters surrounding the four walls to create a bright and open-plan space that’s filled with natural lighting. Translated from the Latin ‘in the garden’, In Horto is an ode to the wild where diners can tuck into rustic wood-fired cooking and botanical alchemies amongst a verdant setting.

Guests paying a visit to Southwark Quarter over the bank holiday weekend will be in luck as In Horto will be open on 28th of May. Diners can soak up the sunshine whist sipping a Mezcal Breeze or Pepino Picante in their sun-filled haven each weekend.
