Hawthorn Leisure

About the Pub

Opened in 1913 as a cinema, it was a Wetherspoon till 8/5/16;and has been in the GBG for many years. Hawthorn Leisure took over four days later and the beer offering is very similar. They aim to have at least one and maybe 2 London brews along with other popular National beers.

The spacious hall maintains architectural features on the walls and ceiling, but the main feature is behind the bar; fabulous murals of Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. There is an outdoor patio area. Silent TVs are on all the time, and a huge screen drops down to show major sporting events. LocAle is provided by London micro-breweries.

The pub is open for breakfast from 9am; you can also enjoy a beer from 9am.
