Taking its name from a Lewis Carroll poem in Through the Looking Glass, the Walrus and the Carpenter sites on the north bank of the River Thames. Nearby, you’ll find iconic London locations like both London Bridge and Tower Bridge, The Shard, the Tower of London and Southwark Cathedral. It’s also a short walk from the nearby London Bridge tube station.

Inside, you’ll be spoiled for choice about where to sit, with the pub boasting both a main bar, a secondary underground cellar bar, and a dining room – all of which are available for your exclusive use and private hire: perfect for parties.

On the menu, as you’d expect in such an iconic London location, there’s the best of British on the menu, with classic pub dishes available. What’s more, you can choose from a wide range of cask ales, beers and spirits to find the perfect accompaniment to your meal.
