Hungry? There’s always something delicious to munch on while in Putney. The Boathouse is a beautiful building encompassed with glass and stands 3 stories tall. It has views of the Thames River, and a balcony and garden that can handle any weather that England may throw at us. With food inspired by the sea, The Boathouse is a must to visit.
If you’re not into seafood, that’s okay. There’s Bill’s, a contemporary European restaurant, and Coppa Club, a local restaurant offering igloos with unbeatable views . Both are pleasant restaurants overlooking the Thames River that serve many mouth-watering dishes other than seafood. Another top-notch restaurant is Home SW 15 who serves the best modern British food. Can’t take our word for it? Home SW 15 was 2019 Winner of London’s Best Local Restaurant. They offer genuine hospitality and have such a warm and welcoming staff; it is a home away from home. There’s also a lovely Indian restaurant on Richmond Road called the Holy Cow. Probably because that’s what the food will make you say! This local restaurant recognizes how important dining is and focuses on quality, creativity, and above all, taste. You can even design your own dish.
To drink, a common and historic pub is the Green Man. Here, they serve food all day long and have a special and seasonal menu just for British food. The pub is ideal if you’re looking to sit back and relax while eating delicious food. The bar is fully stocked with ales and wines and has a wide selection of spirits and cocktails. A bonus point? The pub is dog friendly; we don’t want your furry one missing out on the fun!
One pub that pulls out all the stops is The Spotted Horse. They have great food and drinks, with handcrafted cocktails, signature Sunday roasts, and plenty of other options that will keep you coming back for more. Located outside the maddening streets of Putney High Street, The Coat & Boat is one of the locals favourite pubs. The pub, found on Lacy Road, offers a homey environment and is a phenomenal setting for people watching, munching on fabulous food, or watching some sports on the big screen.
Putney is also home to a bunch of celebrities. Jack Whitehall, fellow comedian, grew up in Putney and his parents still live here today. Then there’s the athletes who have previously trained in Putney: Former decathlete Daley Thompson, gold medal winner in the 2012 olympics for double sculls Sophie Hosking, Mark Aldred who competed in the 2016 olympics for rowing, and Jess Eddie who won silver in the 2016 olympics for rowing. Famous actor Pierce Brosnan as well as musician Simon Le Bon, also lived in Putney. Today, actor Jason Flemygn lives in Putney.
With plenty to offer, Putney makes for an optimal place to live or to visit.
