Description

The Fentiman Arms is a gorgeous pub, with a simply fantastic Club Room, just a short stroll from the Oval and Vauxhall tubes.

With its own bar, large windows, comfy furniture and kitsch inspired decor, no-one else in the area has anything of this physique. It’s superb for long lunches on big sporting days, and equally perfect for drinks parties, intimate dinners and special occasions. Their Club Room is a flexible space, perfect for hiring out or watching sports and has two distinct sections - the bar area and the dining area (or even dance floor). The great garden, designed by award winning Stephen Woodhams, is also wonderful for BBQ parties and lazy summer lunches.

Serving up gastro style grub in a humble enviroment, dining guests can spoil their palate with dishes such as rainbow trout fillet and clam linguine, all served with a stellar selection of bottles, the likes of local real ale, international bottles of wine and favoured beers.

The Fentiman Arms Oval - London Pub Review

I bloody love a pub. The locals, the affordable grub and dogs; pubs love a dog and so do I. But did my new Oval local The Fentiman Arms live up to all that British boozing charm? The Venue Tales and rumours of The Fentiman Arms ring with...

Service was very sweet and attentive Food good Only 4 stars because of an open window in the back of the dining room. Should be fixed as it was quite cold! We expected nice, cozy and warm pub atmosphere instead. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2018-02-16

One person behind a bar during Valentines lunch time... not a very good idea. The club sandwich was massive and pretty dry, bread was nice and good quality but very thick. Burger was cold, but we were hungry so didn't complain to the staff who was not very friendly at the beginning. However she did smiled when we were leaving and did wished us a good day.

The Fentiman’s atmosphere, staff, food and service were all excellent. I have always enjoyed eating and drinking there but on this occasion the Fentiman hosted a family function for 28 in its upstairs room. It was a great success. The Fentiman team was accommodating, flexible and attentive and the food great. I’d heartily recommend it. A lovely and very well managed pub. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2018-02-10

Very disappointing. When I booked I explained that I needed to eat gluten free (this is not a fad - I have Coeliac disease). The booking conformation recognised that I had notified you of this. There was no gluten free menu. The menu does not show which dishes are gluten free. This leads to an embarrassing public discussion over the dinner table. There was no g-f bread - that's unnecessary when it is so easy to keep some g-f bread in a freezer and produce it when requested. A most disappointing experience. I shall not be rushing back.

Whist the interior of the Fentiman is delightful and the staff pleasant and efficient, the food has deteriorated massively. My roast chicken seemed boiled rather than roasted as were the potatoes that accompanied it. My husband's fish in batter was soggy and my daughter's sirloin steak a cheaper cut of meat. Very disappointing, especially as it is our local pub which we often frequent. please do something about the chef! Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2018-02-04

It was great to find a Gatsby Party near our home for New Year's Eve - and our dinner was excellent - possibly too much to eat but the quality as well as quantity actually exceeded expectations. Our usual visits to this pub are on Quiz nights with a group of friends when we eat fish and chips or burgers! The dining room wasn't as busy as we had expected but this did have the advantage of enabling conversation so we were perfectly happy, our waitress was delightful and we were overjoyed to find that when we returned to the bar area for "main event" we had a table reserved for us for the rest of the evening. Quality service, good food and being able to appreciate our own company in a calm environment - and then walking home...what could be nicer on a New Years Eve?

Unfortunately the experience wasn't what we had hoped for. The reservation process was extremely disorganized (I spoke to about 4 different people about the reservation and pre order). The starters and deserts were not particularly good (although we all enjoyed the main courses). Overall this was a rather expensive but average meal. I visit the Fentiman Arms often for a casual drink but this was my first, and unfortunately my last, group event with you. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-17

Lovely atmosphere and good service. Food was generally good but the "smashed" avocado was absolutely disgusting - a very sloppy, gloopy guacamole that tasted only of inferior mayonnaise instead of the expected chunks of avocado.

Staff were really nice, but the food was unbelievably basic, even for pub grub. Definitely a good place to drink, but there was not a single person on our table of 11 who did not think the food was less than average. Poor show. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-14

I pre-booked a Xmas lunch for 9 people and was asked both to provide card details as collateral and to pre-order the lunch at a cost of £214 which I thought was overkill. Surely one or the other is sufficient to ensure the party shows up in the day? Then I received copious reminders about the booking, which is fine, but when we showed up on the day our table was not ready and the staff weren't aware of our arrival. The place was very busy, granted, but we had booked weeks in advance so it was shocking to find nothing was ready. However, once we did get a table the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Perhaps I would recommend going during a less busy period. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-12

Reply from The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns

We are trying to make the booking process as "painless" as possible. payment request is part of our booking policy, same as probably most pubs. I'm sorry to hear that your table wasn't ready. Despite all our efforts, it looks like we've failed in our organisation on the day. However, I'm glad that we made up for all the trouble as you seem like you've had a good experience in the end.

We were very disappointed with our experience. It took 45 mins for our starter to arrive and it was incomplete, no shallots or lemon with the salmon. It took a further half hour for the mains then the desert was a massive disappointment. The crumple resembled a soup with a few bred crumbs. Unfortunately we will not be dining their again after this experience. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-10

We were able to set and use the space as we liked. The staff was very responsive and the service was timely. But it was incomplete as at the time of the booking (which we made months ago), it was promised to us that we could use the TV and sound system to sync in with our karaoke software. However, on the day of the party, we were told that their systems are installed in a way which could either allow the graphics or sound- not both! We had to cancel the Karaoke plan (which was supposed to be the highlight of the party), and just decided to stick with songs, but the sound system had such poor quality that even with the highest of volume, the music was not loud enough! Absence of good sound system sort of ruined the essence of our Christmas party, but otherwise, everything was as decided. Thank you! Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-07

Reply from The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns

I do remember your party. I'm sorry our sound/video set up didn't allow you to organize your karaoke. It is a lesson to learn for us as we should have made sure we understood your expectations better. Please accept my sincere apologies Kind Regards Francois

We booked the room above the pub for a team meeting. As a charity, we always look for low room booking rates and theirs are really good. The staff onsite are very accommodating but getting our simple (and small - only 8 people) pre-booked food order correct turned into a bit of an ordeal..... but it all turned out ok in the end! Would definitely recommend using as a venue for small/medium sized meetings. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-11-14

Mediocre: this place has gone downhill rapidly. Used to be one of my favourite London pubs for Sunday lunch.

Many items were off the menu. Some were known to the waiter once we had asked, others only materialised when he tried to enter them on his tablet. None were advised when he handed us the menu. He seemed to find the whole thing amusing. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-11-20

I'm sorry that there was an issue with the menu. Some of our dishes such as pies have been proven very successful which caused stock issues as they are all made onsite.

Pretty disappointing. Having booked a table, I assumed it would be in a quiet dining area. The dining room was closed, however, which meant we had a very noisy meal and the four of us had great difficulty hearing each other over the loud music. The food was mostly okay, although my wife's fishcake was 95% potato and consequently flavourless. The service was good, considering the small number of staff working on a busy Friday night. We won't be returning any time soon. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-10-20

Unfortunately, my lunch at The Fentiman Arms was soured a little - which is a shame as I have had very good nights in the past. I'm sure this may be a break from the norm, but nevertheless, I did leave a little annoyed. The service was a little slow, however, Sunday lunch will always be that way. But, when the waitress took the order, we all ordered mains and I asked for a portion of the Mac and Cheese (which was a starter). She muttered something about it maybe coming out at different times, which I thought was odd seeing as it's only Mac and Cheese (a side dish in many restaurants). I clarified that I just wanted it for the table to share to which the, somewhat flustered, waitress looked up from her iPad (from which she was taking all the mains orders), gave me a rather indignant look and said, "You should have said before". I was annoyed by this, but didn't say anything. My friend brought his Mac with him to show us all a short video he'd made for our friend's 50th. It was funny. Very funny. To which we all laughed out loud, apparently too loud. A waiter came over and rather than saying, "Sorry guys, please would you mind keeping it down a touch" - a fair request - he "sssshhhh'ed" us and motioned with his hands to keep it down. Then just walked off, which I thought was pretty rude seeing as we're a table of 6, spending well over £200 and due a little common courtesy as, y'know, the customers? On a smaller note, the veg was wa-hay underdone. though the Veggie Wellington was tasty and others complimented their meals. Going to be a little more selective before heading there again, which is a shame. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-10-01

We had a fantastic time at the Fentiman Arms last Sunday. The Fentiman team did a great job of catering for a large group of 12, and all the pre-ordered starters and prosecco were waiting when we arrived.

After a long day at the cricket we were looking forward to a nice dinner. We didn't get one! They say the amount of people in a restaurant is a reflection of how good it is and that was definitely true in this case- there were just 2 other people eating. Overpriced with half of the food available, we only had 4 dishes to choose from. We gave up and went to the Riverside instead which was much better and just a 10 minute walk away.

Extremely limited menu due to cricket, and almost no beers available at the bar. And to top it off after waiting 45 minutes some of our food was sent to another table. You'd think a pub next to Oval would maybe know the cricket schedule and be able to plan stock in advance. Seems like a basic requirement of running a pub in that location.

The food was great - when it eventually came. It was a busy International cricket day but despite pre-ordering, the main course took over 1 1/2 hrs to arrive. In fairness to the manager the food was free as compensation for the wait - but sadly it did mean we missed most of the afternoon session. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-07-27

Not good on a test match day: 1. Struggled to find where our booked table was on arrival – directed to wrong side of crowded bar. Only one waitress knew the table plan. Useful to have this info near the door. 2. It turned out you didn’t have a table for us and had to have one made up for us upstairs 3. You didn’t know our food order despite us emailing this through. We showed you our email. 4. We didn’t order a starter as we wanted a quick lunch so as not to miss much cricket – despite arriving before 1 pm, we waited until 2 pm for our main course. During this time everyone else got starters but it seems you couldn’t accelerate our mains. 5. We then said we would have our desserts only if they were quick and were told they would be two minutes. 15 minutes later we left without dessert! 6. All your staff were very polite and friendly and apologetic etc. 7. The food was delicious. 8. You didn’t charge us for the drinks we ordered with the food as the food was slow – thank you. I appreciate that you are keen to serve food of a high standard but as cricket fans what we want on these days is a quick in and out and are happy to compromise on the food. We would happily pay a similar price for something that you could serve quickly. We have eaten with you over many years and would like to do again but we are bringing clients who want to watch the cricket. We probably won’t come again unless you can show us there is a quick lunch option. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-07-27

I lived in Vauxhall for over 20 years, spent many a convivial weekend in this pub and even held my 10th Anniversary party in the garden nearly 13 years ago (spending two grand in the process). Sadly, the Fentimen of Sunday 2nd July 2017 was not the same due to one simple error - insufficient staff. It was a glorious Sunday afternoon and (easily predictable) the place was packed, but there was only one poor individual (run ragged) serving the entire garden (so he could not take food or drink orders). Consequently, the two guys and one gal behind the bar were faced with queues three-deep and customers getting increasingly irate despite their very best efforts (and these too were run ragged). To add insult to delay, I was presented with a bill for £227ish when the actual amount was £186.07 - poor, poor, poor. Never again I fear since the Latchmere in Battersea is much better value with amazing Sunday roasts and, more importantly, without the "fall-of-Saigon" atmosphere at the bar....*shudder* Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-07-02

Bland bland bland, and over priced for what it really is.... Service is so lack lustre that you would feel more special getting your own ketchup, cutlery and napkins at a Nandos. And i'm saying this as one paying for what use to be my "local" the menu is boring burgers and salmon it use to be seasonal and exciting but the new staff is rude and un-interested bordering on rude to be kind. Spare yourself the time and visit something more exciting on the riverside by Vauxhall or Clapham...

I think more care and attention to the garden plants& trees should be undertaken. They looked lovely after the refurbishment but have been allowed to die. Dirty tables outside and glasses drinks were served in were grubb and in-uniform i.e. Gin & tonic sometimes in nice big round glasses, the in short stubby too small glasses.. Needs someone with a keen eye to keep overall smartness of the place up to scratch Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-06-25

Poor service, food took nearly an hour to serve, drinks again seemed to be a complex operation that took time. I was asked if thee were any special conditions and on the booking form said it was my. birthday. The acknowledgement was, after we had waited long enough for the food order, I asked how long it would be and the floor manager asked if it WAS my birthday and gave me a sweaty handshake. My steak was ok but the fish cake was stodgy, underseasoned and the two orders of fish and chips were ordinary. Apart from that I had a lovely day.

The pub & terrace are lovely, the staff really nice, efficient & friendly but sadly the food is poor to mediocre. The menu reads well but I have eaten here on five different occasions & had something different from the main course menu each time & without fail it had been very disappointing. Unfortunately the people I was with all said the same thing without fail. Someone needs to take a serious & professional look at the what is coming out of the kitchen. Overall I would say there is a distinct lack of flavour. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-04-08

I had a great Engagement drinks on Saturday night. We reserved an area, I bought balloons and it was lovely. The staff were really friendly and once they knew what we wanted they took great care of us. There was no minimum spend so we didn't feel under pressure and could just enjoy ourselves. I might suggest that in future the Fentiman Arms might want to put one waiter with the party so that they could stay on top of clearing, pouring drinks (as we did buy bottles) but if you're looking for a no frills, yet fun place I would recommend it!

Fentiman is a local and I love the atmosphere and it's got a good selection of drinks. However the food is really poor value for money - portion size is totally out of touch with the price point compared to similar pubs nearby. One friend had the fish cake as a main and had to then order additional sides afterwards because it was not at all filling but the price suggested it would be a full main course. This is disappointing because otherwise it's a great place to meet. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2017-03-24

I dine at The Fentiman Arms and it's always been great and I'll be back again soon. But booking in for lunch for the Christmas menu was the most almighty palaver. I swear this is true: it was easier to apply for my credit card earlier this year than to book a Christmas meal at the Fentiman Arms. The IT isn't robust or reliable, and there were so many hoops to jump through. I tried calling in to do it face to face but that wasn't possible either. The food wasn't up to scratch either - sour soup, dry turkey and indifferent vegetables. Go for Sunday lunch or a mid-week dinner and you'll have a great time. But until you know they've got a grip on the situation think twice about taking a colleague out for lunch in the run-up to Christmas. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-12-20

The starters and main were excellent and there were no disappointed comments, the puddings however were a real let down. The crumble was bland and the apples were quite powdery. There were also comments around the figgy pudding not being anything at all really. This is where people felt it really fell down. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-12-01

Nice looking pub with great outdoor area for the summer. Well appointed inside. Charming staff. However, food very disappointing indeed. No quince chutney for the game terrine; told apple instead. None of that either. Then they had run out of custard - despite spotted dick and jam roly poly on the menu. Disappointing presentation of food. And all this for £40 a head. Will go elsewhere another time. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-13

Nice pub with not so nice staff. Our waitress was lovely but the two male waiters/barmen we all found to be cold and dismissive. Don't work in the service industry if you don't want to interact with people. When people make comments about the food tell them you're sorry and you'll inform the chef rather than muttering 'ok'.

We really enjoyed the evening and the food. Think the dining area upstairs a really good idea. Very nice staff and good atmosphere all round. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-05

Food took a long time to come which didn't really matter but one person had to wait for his main course so long that the rest of us had finished by the time it came. We preferred the old decor in the front area. But we still love the Fentiman Arms, and will still be frequently visitors. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-02

We are regulars at the fenti and this was the first time we had eaten there since the re opening. We were very disappointed at both the time it took to get our food and the quality. Our starters were substituted without discussion and the quality of the main was poor. It's a shame as we had always previously enjoyed the food, we also thought it was very expensive for the standard, you can get much better and cheaper even in Covent Garden or soho ! Sorry to say that we won't be eating with you again. Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-01

I lunched with 11 friends on Nov 1st. The main course took a very long time (more than an hour) to arrive, and then not all at the same time. Many of the dishes were dry and almost inedible. We were told that the kitchen was having trouble with an "Agency Chef". On the bright side, our waitress was engaging and sympathetic, and other staff were helpful. By way of recompense we were not charged for our wine - of which we drank a generous quantity. And the ambience is good. Hence the two star marking, I shall go again and hope the kitchen is under better control then . Visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-01

Really lovely, and chilled out pub. Was pretty much packed on a Wednesday which is rare to see, but good pubs in Oval are few and far between so it makes sense. Brilliant bottles of Malbec for under £20 too, will be heading back!
