Established in 1868.

Josephine and Peter McFarlane bought The Park Tavern from Bass Charrington thirty one years ago, and it remains a family-run pub to this day. When circumstances allow, we will be having a small celebration to mark the anniversary.

It was first licensed on

4th  March 1868, whilst Queen Victoria and Benjamin Disraeli were having tea and a nice piece of cake.

The President of the USA was being impeached.

Plus ça change . . .

Come for the beer.

. . . plus c'est la même.

We have 6 ales on the bar. Young's ordinary and Fuller's London Pride are residents.


There are a few regular visitors, and many surprises. Our beautiful little cellar (and very experienced staff) keep them all in prime condition.

Guinness, lager, cider - well, naturally.

Our wines and spirits might well surprise you in their quality and variety, if you are easily surprised of course.

Come for the sport.

When things normalise a bit, we love a game. Rugby - fab. Soccer, D'oh! Cricket - batty. Gee-gees - giddy up!


We subscribe to Sky and BT Sports. We can show two games at once on the big screens, and smaller ones around the bar.

We are not a big pub, so the bigger the event, the earlier you should get a wiggle on


Did we mention rugby?

Come for a chat.

As a family owned and run pub, we have family values - don't come for a drink, have a drink while you're here.

Dr. Samuel Johnson said;

"There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn." Clever chap.

He would have moaned about the face covering rule of course, but it wouldn't get him anywhere

Well-behaved children, with their well-behaved grownups are welcome until 6.00pm.

Good dogs, on a lead of course, get a pat and a biscuit.

Call 07561 690835 for reservations


We are closed at present, hoping to open on 12th April.  For the time being we will open from 12.00 - 10.00pm every day.


To make this work,  we will be temporarily opening our private garden. Even so, we won't have very much room. So - reservations and wrapping-up warm will probably be good ideas.


Getting the NHS Covid app will save us a load of faff too.
