The White Hart, Cornwall Road, Waterloo, SE1

Visited: Wednesday 3 February by JB & JC


A welcome corner of old fashioned charm in Waterloo. Tucked away on a side street, but still very close to the station, the White Hart is excellent for a pre-train pint.

This is a warm and inviting one-room pub with plenty of wood (if you giggled at that then you’re immature, I’m just saying there is a lot of wooden furniture, ok?) and menus, events, special offers and the like displayed on big chalkboards on the walls.

The beer selection is excellent: it’s one of those bars where the entire length is taken up with taps, and you need about five minutes to decide what to drink. There are plenty of guest ales to keep things interesting, and a really solid selection of lagers too. We went for the All Day IPA which was a little over a fiver.

If you’re in Waterloo, there’s a good chance that you’re either about to get on a train, or have just got off a train. In other words, you will need a bloody drink. You’d be really missing out if it wasn’t at the White Hart.
