The Fentiman Arms


The Fentiman Arms is a buzzy local ideally positioned between Oval, Vauxhall and Kennington tube stations, close enough from the Oval Cricket Ground that you can just hear the roar of cricket fans on match days. The Fentiman Arms is a warm, homely pub with superb quality British food and friendly faces aplenty. Our back doors open up into a large garden, adorned with festoon lights! The comfortable chairs, snug lounging areas and upholstered bench seating make for a relaxing experience.

Serving up freshly prepared British pub classics as well as Sunday roast dinners with an array of seasonal trimmings, Yorkies and gravy as well as an excellent vegetarian roast. Perfectly paired with Bloody Marys, ales, craft beers, a wide wine selection and hot beverages.
