Watson's General Telegraph


Huge selection of constantly rotating craft beers on our impressive tap wall. We choose the best beers from the coolest and most interesting breweries in London right now. We have exclusive access to small batch beers from your favourite breweries, including Beavertown, Brick and Wild. 

Music comes solely from vinyl, no digital files or CDs. Classic sounds and obscure sounds from our crate digging go head to head. Customers are welcome to bring their own records along on Sundays, or come down on Friday and Saturday nights to hear our DJs raid their massive collections of 12"s and LPs. 

Fantastic pub grub is the order of the day, from our very own chorizo and pork burger through to the vegan friendly pea and mint risotto. All ingredients are locally sourced and everything is, of course, cooked to order. 

Our garden has three things going for it. One, it's absolutely huge, plus it keeps the sun all day. It also has it's own bar so you don't even need to break your tanning to get rehydrated.
