About the Pub

Small backstreet local close to the river, renamed in the 1990s after a lost cat who returned. Acquired and refurbished by Harvey's in 2012 and now parading Harvey’s windows and fascia, it is Harvey's second London pub (15 years after they took over the Royal Oak in Borough, SE1) and a good addition to Wandsworth. Under new management since June 2021. There’s a veranda along the back, and a function room upstairs.

All the bric-a-brac from a previous era has gone but it still retains its warm, intimate atmosphere with comfortable sofas to help ensure an enjoyable visit. Four real ales are available from Harvey's plus an occasional guest. The pub offers live music (mostly blues and folk) on the first Thursday of the month, film screenings every other Thursday, starting at 8pm, as well as a poker night each Wednesday. If the pub and beer were not enough, the food offering is excellent, especially Sunday lunch.
