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...

The night was wonderful as usual. However since the new menu has come out there seem to be less options for gluten intolerant people. The staff were helpful in trying to find an option, however it would be nice if there were provisions in place for dietary requirements. visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 31 Jan 2017

About 20 of us met for a pre lunch drink on Christmas Day and the pub entered into the spirit of it and gave us an area to congregate in. It was a hoot. Lovely to have such a great local. visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 25 Dec 2016

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 20 Dec 2016

We had a Christmas lunch for 23 people in the private room, and the whole system at the Fentiman was brilliant. Very easy to organise, easy and relaxed on the day, and great food/drink/decorations/music etc. Thank you very much to Elena for all your help - we had a great afternoon! visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 10 Dec 2016

This pub is in such a great location, the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. We had a large booking for a festive dinner on a Friday night. We were waited on hand and foot by the amazing bar staff, the food came out really quickly and was good quality. I literally can not recommend this place enough, whether its for a quick drink after work or a great place to start a big night out with a large group of friends. visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 09 Dec 2016

Top notch service from very attentive and considerate staff. Food tasty and delivered hot and on time. Only slight quibble would be that it was a little overpriced, especially the wine list. visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 08 Dec 2016

We were very disappointed with our meal here. The food took almost an hour to arrive and when it did arrive it was not hot. The food itself was not great, the Tart in particular was small and not sufficient as a main dish. we will not be going back visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 07 Dec 2016

Hi. Despite an initial problem at the booking stage, our lunch for 17 people on Sunday 4th was a huge success in great part due to the good organization by the events team and mostly due to the great food, very helpful and pleasant staff and the lovely environment. Thank you very much. Best wishes Mark visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 04 Dec 2016

Three of us were allocated table 117 which is clearly supposed to be used for two guests. I was continuously being brushed past. It was like eating in a corridor. Such a shame that it overshadowed excellent food visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 04 Dec 2016

Everone really enjoyed the overall experience. The room was nicely decorated and the staff nice and friendly. 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 01 Dec 2016

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 13 Nov 2016

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'. visited The Fentiman Arms - Geronimo Inns on 12 Nov 2016

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 02 Nov 2016

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 01 Nov 2016

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 01 Nov 2016

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!

What a great pub in oval. This is perfectly hidden away on the back streets and is such a cosy yet modern pub to hang out in for drinks or food. Love it
