About The Crabtree

The Crabtree iconic Victorian pub situated on a fine stretch of the Thames riverbank between Hammersmith & Putney bridges, this vast Victorian venue is within shouting distance of Craven Cottage.

Housed beneath the huge high-vaulted ceiling is the big lounge bar framed by weighty wooden tables, a smattering of stools, paintings, old photos and all the ornate accouterments you’d expect.

The locals love us and on a sunny day can be found in their droves enjoying some of the nicest waterside drinking in the city. The seats under the weeping willow are spectacular.

As well as a restaurant at the rear, there’s a gorgeous, gigantic beer garden with our outdoor BBQ, bedecked in wood and stylish shrubbery, which flows down to the riverfront. It’s really rather lovely, if truth be told.


At The Crabtree we love celebrating seasonal food and August is no exception.

Veggies – fennel, wild nettles, samphire, chillies, artichoke, kohlrabi, beets, broad beans, carrots, aubergine

Herbs – basil, mint, oregano, sorrel, tarragon, chives, thyme

Sea – dab, grey mullet, coley, crab, halibut, herring, langoustine, cod, pilchards, pollock, queen scallops, wild sea bass, squid, whelks

Fruit – apricot, bilberries, cherries, gooseberries, greengages, kiwi, melon, peach, strawberries

Meat – beef, lamb, rabbit, venison, wood pigeon


On a hot and sunny day why not enjoy an Aperol Spritz, a pitcher of Pimms, a nice bottle of fruit cider or a cold pint from Camden Town Brewery?
