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 the current (2021) local CAMRA South West London branch Pub of the Year, as it was in 2019.

The large front bar is comfortably furnished with tables and chairs for drinkers and diners. Sunday lunch roasts are very popular. The airy back bar is open from noon to 5pm Monday to Saturday as the 'Railway Tea Room' for coffee, cake and brunch. In the evening it can be hired as a function room when it is often used for meetings by local community groups and others. The walled garden is especially popular when the weather is fine.

Cask beers are now exclusively from London brewers with brews from By The Horns, ELB, Portobello, Sambrook's, Southwark and Three Sods often available. These are complemented by a good selection of bottled and canned beers from LocAle brewers.

Daily special offers include Fridge Thursday where any bottle or standard sized can of beer is £3.50 from 5pm.

Tuesday is Quiz Night.

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