The Star and Garter


Sat right on the water’s edge, this laid-back, Victorian-era venue in Putney is a go-to riverside bar for afterwork groups, parties and weekend get-togethers. The menu is heavy on snacks and sharing platters, with the French cheese platters (selected from the walk-in cheese room) being of particular note. Expect a board heaving with Gallic big-hitters and biscuits, plum chutney, quince paste, grapes, figs and almonds. Otherwise, charcuterie boards, homemade Scotch eggs and three types of sausage roll keep hunger at bay during a drinking session. Choose from a list of 35 premium gins and tempting tonics (which are two-for-one Monday–Friday from 5–8pm), plus a decent wine list, all of which capably fuel Saturday’s DJ night.
