Star & Garter
Located along the banks of River Thames overlooking Putney Bridge, the Star & Garter has been gratifying guests for over 140 years. This could be down to the favourable service, feel-good vibe, great location or excellent range of drinks, all of which draw people back time and again.
The bar staff are devotees of the perfect gin and tonic, as indicated in the gin menu, which is split into spicy, floral, citrus and herbaceous gins. There are over 45 different varieties to work your way through – with The Putney Gin Club created last year members also benefit from extended happy hours and two-for-one gin and tonics. If this is your tipple of choice, look out for the gin events taking place every month.
Sophisticated yet unpretentious cheese and charcuterie boards are served in the main bar until 10pm every day, and there’s a larger selection of menus for private functions. Artisan cheese and charcuterie platters, featuring meats from Italy, Spain and France, go hand in hand with a glass of wine.
Corporate events and weddings are the friendly team’s forte; make sure you chat to them about private hire of the ballroom, which boasts lovely views across the water. With attention to detail and a passion for quality, the Star & Garter really shines.
