Blackthorn _ left this review about Bianca Road Brewery & Taproom

One of many similar establishments forming part of the famous Bermondsey Beer Mile, like many of the others this is located in the arches under the railway track, and is of course a brewery tap rather than a pub, and this is reflected in the somewhat industrial style décor, if one could go so far as calling it that.

The flooring was some type of concrete screed, whilst the usual white corrugated iron of these establishments was cladding the ceiling and walls in order to channel the continually dripping water from the tunnel roof away from the punters underneath. That said, they had made a bit of an effort to soften it a little with a couple of strings of lights strung across the front and a limited amount of artwork on the walls, as well as some foliage and pot plants. Although the rear of the pub contained a couple of brewing vessels and so on, somehow here it managed to feel more like an interesting feature instead of being sat in the middle of a factory. There was also various cycling paraphernalia dotted about, including chains, wheels and caps. An arch through to another adjacent tunnel to the left was adorned with fairly lights and led in to more of a storage area, although there was also some additional seating here. A decent mix of background music was playing.

Beers on tap appeared to be keg rather than cask, and on our visit included Longplay IPA, Hay-Z Pale, Black IPA, Salt Lake Shake, Tropical IPA and an American Pale Ale. Ciders meanwhile were both from the local Hawkes with their Mixed Berry and Apple. I opted for the Salt Lake Shake though which was described as a Cinnamon & Ginger Milkshake, and whilst quite unusual I found it pleasant enough. Overall I quite liked this one, having a slightly less industrial feel than some of it’s nearby competitors.
