This building has been keeping people refreshed since 1856. In its everlasting pursuit to serving drinks, this indestructible piece of architecture survived two bombings in the Blitz in WWII. Two aspiring publicans have now bought the premises and are closing it for a short while before reopening it as the Spit and Sawdust. With a nod to the past and a look to the future, Spit and Sawdust will bring back this cornerstone of the community with a new lease of life.

The Story so far...

 

This building has been keeping people refreshed since 1856.  In its everlasting pursuit to serve drinks, this indestructible piece of architecture survived two bombings in the Blitz of WWII.

 

In August 2016 Ron Howard lookalike (Matt), speccy little git (Andy) and Jesus impersonator (Sean) got the keys to the premises and closed up shop for a refurb.  Like an ugly caterpillar metamorphosing into a beautiful butterfly the pub reopened in September as the Spit and Sawdust, a traditional London Boozer with a contemporary twist.  A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this refurb; I might add.  We did everything ourselves, me (Matt), Andy, Sean and a building enigma known only as Huggy.  Me and Andy lost about five stone between us, Huggy almost had a melt down and Sean…  well Sean actually managed to remain pretty cool throughout, tosser.  Anyways we opened, just, and have been building blocks ever since.

 

Our Beer selection kicks the s**t out of most, boasting the biggest in Elephant and Castle with 20 lines in total and a heavy focus on the Craft Beer market.  Keeping things craft and independent we also offer different Street Food Pop Ups at the weekend, as well as Pie Minister - who are now here permanently (with a wide selection of delicious pies:-)!
