London Launch: There’s a new pub in town!

Get ready south Londoners; there’s a new pub in town! Elephant & Castle’s shiny new drinking spot, The Elephant & Castle, is getting ready to open its doors and it’s making us thirsty just thinking about it.

 The SE1 pub, which will open on Thursday July 14, will be the newest member of the Antic pub collective, which means it’s sure to combine old charm with new design. The quirky décor is said to be inspired by the sixties tower block it rests under, so will have loads of character. Its furniture, lighting and features will also be original to the period – we hear burnt oranges, patterned wallpaper and banquette seating will be in abundance. It’s going to be cosy!

Although many of the details are still under wraps, we know they’ll have all the pub favourites on offer, along with Antic’s own George Arthur cider and Volden beer making an appearance. Local Bermondsey brewers Orbit and Four Pure will also have a sumptuous selection of beers available.

We can’t wait to hear more about what they have to offer, and of course get on down to try various tipples on the menu.
