  • The Chelsea Pig will be furniture designer Timothy Oulton's first pub

    the chelsea pig

    He has stores worldwide from Miami to Moscow, but now interior designer Timothy Oulton has returned back to the UK to open his first pub.

    The Chelsea Pig is a bit of an SW3 landmark, having been around since the 1890s. Now for the 2020s it's getting a new lease of life. Obviously, design is to the fore with a moonstone bar, vintage furniture from Timothy's own collection and lots of leather.

    The food will be

    22/7/21 - updated with pics and opening dates

    We'd been hearing for quite some time that Kitchen Table's James Knappett was getting involved with a pub, and then it was confirmed as a Chelsea classic - The Cadogan Arms.

    The pub had been closed for renovation since back in 2019 and is getting ready to unveil its new look. It's all a collaboration

  • MEATliquor take over The Dartmouth Arms in Forest Hill

    Updated 7/7/21 with new opening date

    It's strange how things come full circle, isn't it? Way back in 2009 MEATliquor burst on to the London food scene in a truck located in a New Cross pub car park. They didn't open their first actual restaurant until 2011.

    Now, ten years later, their latest London opening is going to see them move back into pub life, taking over a pub in Forest

  • The White Horse in Mayfair's Shepherd Market is Hedonism Wine's first wine-led pub

    white horse mayfair shepherd market

    As of last week, Mayfair had a new pub. But this isn't any old pub, it's a Hedonism Wines pub. The White Horse has taken over the old Hatchett's site on White Horse Street and is the high end wine merchants first public house.

    What will you find in a wine-led pub? Well, for starters things like a 1974 Blandy’s Verdelho Madeira, and a Lagavulin distiller’s edition 2005 on the optics.

    Seeing any shuttered pub reopen its doors is a good news story, but the team behind this Catford pub have triumphed with their neighbourhood opening.

  • Ex-Harwood Arms chef takes on Westminster's Blue Boar Pub

    As former Head Chef of London's only Michelin-starred pub, it's fair to say that Sally Abé knows how to construct a winning pub menu. So it's perhaps no surprise that she's been brought into the Conrad London St James to work her magic there with the hotel's pub (with more to come).

    In the past, The Blue Boar had gone down the American smokehouse route and then the trad British one. And it's the British

    Update 28/4/21 - looks like good things do happen to nice people, as we've just heard that Westminster Council has approved the pub's reopening. "We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the tremendous support you have given us while campaigning to ‘Save The Cow’," says owner Tom Conran. 


    Our hearts go out to The Cow pub in Westbourne Grove. Not only are they having to deal with the

    Updated 23/4/21 with opening date

    Highgate is about to get a new Irish pub and the people behind it have an interesting background. Called Brendan the Navigator, it's going to open on Highgate Hill, taking over the prominent building that used to be The Tourian Lounge, and before that the Old Crown Inn.

  • Surprise! The Guinea Grill is opening for alfresco dining in its Mayfair mews

    oisin rogers guinea grill alfresco

    Fans of Mayfair pub the Guinea Grill, who were perhaps disappointed when it didn't reopen for outside drinking or dining this month, will be happy at the news that landlord Oisin Rogers has changed his mind.

    Having originally decided not to opt for an alfresco experience, he's decided to open the pub's outside terrace earlier than planned. To that end, they'll be putting out tables on Bruton Place from next

  • The Perry Hill Pub gets a new lease of life in Catford

    perry hill pub catford reopens

    Back before Christmas, there was a distinct frisson of excitement in South London when it was revealed that local pub the Perry Hill was being taken over by new company, Doghouse Pubs. The pub's been closed for quite a while, so this was great news for locals. Even more so when it turned out that Doghouse Pubs was run by Phil Sutton (previously at the Florence in Herne Hill) and his wife Oonagh McCormack.

    Now, in

  • Enderby House is a new riverside pub for Greenwich serving up seafood

    enderby house greenwich pub

    Greenwich locals will be pleased to hear that a historical building, which has been closed to the public for years, is about to reopen in its new guise as a pub. Enderby House is a Grade II listed building on the riverfront that is pretty much all that remains of a wharf built back in the 1800s. Next month it opens its doors (or at least its outside terraces) as a Young's pub.

    The three-floored building will begin by

  • Leyton's Filly Brook pub crowdfunds its way to a new alfresco space

    Having an outside space matters more than ever for hospitality businesses. Anywhere in London that can do alfresco will have a clear month's extra trading before inside dining resumes in May.

    One East London pub's solution to the problem has been to seek help from its customers -
