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, Two Tribes, Hackney and Mondo. 

Fantastic pub grub is the order of the day, from our very own Chuck & Flank beef burger through to the vegan friendly Sausage & Mash. 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 re-hydrated.
