Award-winning pub group Geronimo Inns offers fantastic British food and drink with excellent service, in quirky yet comfortable surroundings. Over Jubilee weekend The Oyster Shed has lots of fun events taking place. The Oyster Shed is a new pub in the City right on the river, on Oystergate Walk, with some of the most fantastic views over the Thames in London. There will be a street party on the Monday, offering a range of delicious ice creams, a special Jubilee Ale, chilled Champagne and rosé wine, alongside bunting, music and festivities both inside and outside spilling out onto the riverside. www.geronimo-inns.co.uk
The Oyster Shed serves an excellent selection of beverages including a wide range of Champagne and wine, Asahi, Aspall Cider, Oyster Shed Gold and Cornish Coaster ales, Japanese Whisky and sake, as well as suitably themed cocktails including Fish House Punch, Cuban Mojitos and Bloody Marys. A range of soft drinks and fresh fruit juices is also available. The food menu includes a whole host of British classics as well as an extensive range of bar snacks, and is in keeping with Geronimo Inns’ traditional approach, which is to create affordable food that is simply constructed and effectively delivered.
In addition, the gorgeous Prince Albert pub is right on the newly opened Albert Bridge in Battersea, so everyone watching the hundreds of boats going past on the Sunday from the bridge can walk just a few metres to enjoy excellent pub food and drink in the pub afterwards (and before!), and watch the rest of the activities on the big screen. Guests visiting The Prince Albert are greeted by two majestic stone dog statues, and can enjoy beautiful views towards the Peace Pagoda in Battersea Park. On the inside, the décor pays homage to its chic South London surroundings and traditional country house architecture in equal measure. Offering a range of real ales, an impressive wine list and a deliciously varied menu, The Prince Albert is a pub that has paid great attention to detail, while retaining a relaxed atmosphere, and is generously spread across 2 floors and a beer garden.
The distinctive food menu at The Prince Albert explores a range of different flavours and ingredients. The wine list, compiled by John Cleveley, Master of Wine, is a connoisseur’s choice of modern flavours- with 30 available by the glass and 15 by the bottle. Regular and rotating ales, including locally-sourced Hogs Back Summer Ale and Wandle Ale, alongside Sharps Doombar, Purity Mad Goose, Youngs Bitter and Adams East Green, accompany a range of bottled beers and lagers, including Anchor Steam Bitter and Meantime Wheat, Budvar and Coopers Sparkling.
