A buzzy busy local with an unmissable menu, close enough from the Oval that you can just hear the roar of the cricket fans on match day but far enough away to use the gorgeous garden without danger of being hit by an errant cover drive.

It’s location around the corner from the Oval Cricket Ground, makes The Fentiman Arms the perfect destination for a pre or post-match pint in South London. With only a short walk to both the Oval Grounds itself and Oval Tube Station, you can hear the roar of cricket fans from the comfort of their beautiful garden. During the Cricket World Cup, enjoy an amazing match day pub atmosphere, along with food served all day and plenty of drinks on tap.

Ideally positioned between Oval, Vauxhall and Kennington tube stations, the Fentiman Arms is a warm, homely pub with superb quality British food and friendly faces aplenty. During summer, the back doors open up onto a wild country beer garden where delicious BBQ food is offered up, alongside with an outside bar serving an exciting range of drinks! The comfortable chairs, snug lounging areas and upholstered bench seating make for a relaxing experience, while the rows of bookcases, a log fire and creative lighting creates the perfect atmosphere for Sunday lunch on a crisp wintry afternoon.

Our upstairs Refectory Room is perfect for all events from business meetings to private function or large dining parties.

We also host numerous events along the year including Burns Night, 6 Nations, Valentine’s Day, supplier tastings, themed parties in the garden… So keep an eye on the What’s On page!!

Our garden is now boasting an amazing stretch tent which links from our pergola to the burger shack. With that in mind, we are creating a new Winter Garden experience with extra heaters, lighting and decoration... We will also have our burger shack and bar open every Thursday to Saturday from 5pm till 9pm serving a great range of winter hot drinks and our very own Hot Dog menu. We are now able to organise parties up to 150 (terms and conditions apply). So talk to us or just pop in with your friends!


Sunday roasts, bar snacks, BBQ menu and oh so much more.
