London’s Riverside Drinking

We’ve been keeping an avid eye on the weather forecast and it looks like some delightful summer evenings are on the horizon! We think there’s no better way to spend an warm summers evening than sitting but the banks of the Thames or one of London’s many canals sipping on an ice cold drink.

Here are the teams favourite waterside watering holes!

 

Crate Brewery, E9

This venue has been a Mask favourite for some time, especially with recent addition of the canal boat as a floating bar. What more could you ask for.

The Ship, SW18

A south London favourite, this pub has a relaxing terrace and garden overlooking Wandsworth Bridge.

The Prospect Of Whitby, E1

Spend the day walking along the Thames Path and finish up here, lounging beneath a weeping willow and looking out across the Thames to the London Skyline. Opened in 1520 you can’t get much more authentically London than this pub which has even featured in an episode of Only Fools and Horses.

The Oyster Shed, EC4

A city favourite, this modern venue boasts stunning views of of the Shard and South London. The interior is bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows and a clean-cut Scandinavian design.

The Bell and Crown, W4

The perfect spot while away a Sunday afternoon believing that you’ve headed out to the country when actually you’re only in Chiswick.

The Mayflower, SE16

Another of the oldest pub on the Thames and this small but perfectly formed gem nestled on the south side of the river is one best locations to watch the sun set over the city.

The Towpath Café, N1

If you’re lucky enough to nab a canal-side table on a sunny day we guarantee you’ll end up staying for hours.

Pavilion Café, E8

Although this is technically Riverside we can’t resit a quiet afternoon sitting by the boating lake in Victoria Park enjoying a Bloody Mary.
