The Southwark place to be for gigs

Known locally as ‘The Glad’, this independent family-run pub is affectionately named after four-time former prime minister William Gladstone. Located a stone's throw away from Borough tube station, expect Anglo-Indian dishes including favourites such as curry pies and Indian Sunday roasts. Accompanying the spice is a strong selection of British craft beer, wine and cocktails. An array of entertainment can also be found. Gigs, comedy, quizzes and open mic nights all feature weekly.


A pub that sheds a gentle melancholy upon the soul.

Steeped in over 200 years of history, The Glad was mentioned by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers as somewhere that “sheds a gentle melancholy upon the soul”. However, you’d be forgiven for mistaking melancholy for celebration now, as The Glad is now very much somewhere to have fun!


“When people come to our pub, they usually feel very welcomed and a little bit like walking into a living room,  it feels like a place where you could spend hours chatting with friends."
