What they say?


Bought to you by 2012 winners of the UK Street Food Festival, Laughingstock, this year's E4 Underbelly watering hole comes in the form of The Magners Pasture; a 1000+ capacity beer garden with table service, organic food, and pub games. With everything from giant Jenga, numerous cold beers and ciders as well as plasma screens showing the summer's hottest sporting action, The Magners Pasture has all bases covered for a great Central London outdoor bar. Open from midday everyday, The outdoor bar offers a truly beautiful and unique place perfect for socialising, meeting friends or enjoying a drink after one of the festival's cracking acts at the heart of the city.

What we say?


Proudly nestled next to Underbelly's cow, The Magners Pasture will undoubtably become this summer's after work and weekend pitstop for alfresco eating and drinking. As the name suggests, the outdoor bar serves a variety of Magners ciders including Magners Golden Draught- a new crispier and lighter coloured cider crafter using Dabinett apples. If you're not a fan however all the usual bar classics are available and will ensure you keep 'hydrated'. Apart from drinks, the bar serves a variety of organic foods and considering the venue's creators are food festival winners we think the grub will go down a treat too! 

Undoubtably a hot spot when the sun is out, you can opt out of the pushing and shoving by the main bar and book the Golden Barrel VIP bar. Complete with self-service Golden Draught taps and table football, it is the perfect spot for a lazy afternoon with friends.

With free entrance, The Magners Pasture will be at the South Bank until 17th July so make sure you pop down and get your summer underway! 

Opening Hours:

Sunday - Wednesday Midday to 11pm

Thursday - Saturday Midday to 12am
