The White Bear

306 user reviews 4

South London is definitely not short of great beer gardens, but the White Bear's garden certainly has to feature high on the list. Having been created in 1780, just as the British lost their grip on the American colonies, the venue is full of vintage antiques, and the walls are covered in grainy photographs and satirical newspaper cartoons. As you'd expect to find in a modern pub, the venue's chef plates up a range of traditional British recipes, including gravy drenched roast dinners and piping hot catch-of-the-day dishes.
