Beer Guide London Visits – 06/07/2024

By admin

7000 Jars Of Beer (1 / 191)

Bottle shop in the heart of Kingston that also offers 6 quality beers on tap. Expect to find a range of a couple of hundred packaged beers from the UK and beyond. Comfortable space with plenty of seating inside and a couple of tables in the alley outside. The stipulation placed on them when they first opened that they could only serve beer to people who were eating has, thankfully, long been dropped.

Tartarus – Rainbow Serpent – 5.8% (Draft) – £2.30 1/3 pint

The Albion (2 / 192)

Large corner pub opposite a park in the suburbs of Kingston. Part of the Big Smoke “family” it has a number of their beers available, plus numerous guests, across the 20 taps and 15 handpulls. Very traditional pub layout with plenty of seating and a beer garden to the rear. Extensive food menu is available.

360º – London Fog – 6.0% (Draft) – £3.50 1/2 pint

The Park Brewery Tap Room (3 / 193)

First floor tap room above the brewery close to Kingsmeadow Stadium. They have 2 cask beers available and 7 taps, mostly their own but may have an occasional guest beer. A small fridge on the bar offers a selection of their packaged beers.

Park – Sugar Moon – 4.3% (Draft) – £2.50 1/2 pint

The Antelope (Surbiton) (4 / 194)

Original home of Big Smoke brewery where you can still see the original brewhouse in the beer garden. Their beers dominate the 14 taps and 12 handpulls, but there are some guest beers available. Seating on a couple of levels plus in the beer garden. Food is served.

Big Smoke – Light Lager – 3.4% (Draft) – £2.65 1/2 pint

Abercorn Arms (5 / 195)

Corner pub in the back streets of Teddington that is now part of the Big Smoke family. 14 taps and up to 6 on cask. Multi room layout with a beer garden to the rear. Nice, cosy, locals pub. Food is available.

Northern Monk – Eternal – 4.1% (Draft) – £3.45 1/2 pint

Masons Arms (Teddington) (6 / 196)

Classic back street boozer just behind the main drag of Teddington. 4 handpumps serve well kept cask ales, and the pump clips that adorn the walls testify to the range offered. There is often something of interest on keg too, but this is definitely cask led. Cosy bar filled with locals and quiet conversations. Unusually they prefer cash to card. Food is limited to classic bar snacks.

Lakedown – Kicking Donkey – 4.1% (Cask) – £2.00 1/2 pint
