“We pride ourselves on being the friendliest pub in New Cross which I feel is the most important thing about a local pub, so many have lost personality over the years from being bought by big chains, being an independent local is hugely important!”
David, Owner of the Fat Walrus
Elected best pub in New Cross by Timeout readers
Opened in 2016, The Fat Walrus has been voted best pub in New Cross by Timeout readers every year since. The kitchen is open 7 days a week to enjoy treats such as a pan-fried seabass fillet or Swaledale onglet steak. Alternatively, grab a booth and enjoy one of the many beers on tap. Attracting numerous students due its proximity to Goldsmiths University, The Fat Walrus welcomes the young and the old. Hand built seating by the staff is an odd but comfortable pub quirk.
New Cross’s best pub, welcoming the young and the old
The loveable resident dog, Trouble, will make the pub feel like it's been your local for years.
