Parched Pubs

About the Pub

Close to Streatham Common Station, this spacious, welcoming, family friendly, community orientated two bar pub, is owned and managed by Parched Pub Co and is a regular in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide and was the local CAMRA South West London branch Pub of the Year in 2019 and 2021.

The large front bar is comfortably furnished with tables and chairs for drinkers and diners. Saturday Brunch and Sunday lunch roasts are especially popular.

The airy back bar can be hired as a function room and is often used for meetings by local community groups and others.

The walled garden is especially popular when the weather is fine. If not large umbrellas and an undercover area protect patrons from the rain.

Cask beers are usually from London brewers with brews from By The Horns, ELB, Portobello, Sambrook's, Southwark and Three Sods often available. Sometimes an interesting guest ale or cider is available. The cask offerings are complemented by a good selection of bottled and canned beers from LocAle brewers.

There is a very popular Bring Your Baby Pub Quiz from 12 - 2:30pm on every 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month. Advanced booking is advisable.

Tuesday is Quiz Night.

Comedy nights on the last Sunday of the month are a popular attraction.
