Pubs

As Londoners, we cherish our local pubs. East Sheen has some great go-to spots. From smaller, more family run chains to larger pubs like WeatherSpoons, there is a pub for everyone in the area.

Pub name Name Address Description
Hare & Hounds 2014-216 Upper Richmond Road West East Sheen SW14 8AH A large, wood panelled former coaching inn substantially modified over the years with a large rear garden, this has been East Sheen’s landmark pub on the main South Circular since 1776.
Pig & Whistle 86 Sheen Lane East Sheen SW14 8LP A modern 1988 pub on part of the site of the former Bull – originally East Sheen’s landmark pub. Since its recent refurbishment and ‘new look’, this is now a comfortable pub, with Sky TV. Outside seating at the rear.
Plough 42 Christchurch Road East Sheen SW14 7AF A traditional and very popular 18th century pub on the edge of the Royal Richmond park in what is known locally as Sheen Village. This picturesque, white-washed gastropub has a historic heritage. The ancient plough hanging outside the entrance is a relic of the time when the inn itself was a collection of farmers’ cottages, circa 1530. The ambiance is enhanced by Oak flooring, wall panels, polished oak bar and ideal lighting. An interesting feature is a little side room called ‘The Snug’ that is just big enough for four people around a table. The menu is gourmet pub grub. The pub is surrounded by a white fenced paved beer garden area with plenty of seating.
Stags Head 24 Priests Bridge East Sheen SW14 8TA A family run pub has stood on this site since at least 1863, the present building dates from 1938. The building was renovated in 2005 to give a modern, relaxed feel to the interior while maintaining its homely and traditional atmosphere. The only public house on the Beverly Brook (a minor urban river) walk, and just a short distance from rugby’s Rosslyn Park. Recently renovated in keeping with the pub’s traditional appearance and atmosphere. Now under new ownership. The Stags Head has been recently reopened (2023) after receiving an extensive refurbishment with new furniture, fixtures and fittings. New HD TV screens installed, all with Sky and BT Sports. The pub’s current name replaced the previous one ‘Halfway House’ in 2017.
Victoria 10 West Temple Sheen East Sheen SW14 7RT Hidden away in what is known locally as Sheen Village and five minutes walk from Richmond Park, this large picturesque pub was probably built sometime between 1845 and 1855 and is now run by chef Paul Merrett and restaurateur Greg Bellamy. As expected most of the pub is taken over to eating. There is a large conservatory which is the main dining area that also overlooks a patio and garden at the rear of the pub. Quiz night takes place last Wednesday of the month from 7.30pm (teams no larger than 6). NB. This is a ‘card only’ pub and opening hours are subject to change.
Jolly Gardeners 36 Lower Richmond Road Mortlake SW14 7EX A traditional pub with a good sized beer garden. It was Rebuilt in 1922 replacing a pub stood since 1794. It is almost surrounded by the old Watney’s brewery, now sold and site to be redeveloped. It was previously called the Three Tuns in 1720 and the present name appeared in 1796 as a possible reference to the expanding market gardens of the area. Originally a two-bar pub, the separating screen was removed in 1987. The pub has a Pool table in the back room, two dartboards, Jukebox & fruit machines. Now an ex Young’s house and owned by Punch Pubs & Co after Young’s disposal of 56 of their tenanted pubs in August 2021.
Ship 10 Thames Bank Mortlake SW14 7QR Built in 1781, the Ship is without doubt most famous for its location on the finishing line of the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race. This ex Taylor Walker pub now has external Greene King branding. Located at the end of Ship Lane off the Lower Richmond Road in Mortlake, to the rear of what was the old Watney’s Brewery, the Ship is set back off the river.
