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.
