The Cat’s Back

About The Cat’s Back

The Cat's Back in Wandsworth is, frankly, a dream pub. Standing in elegant defiance among identikit 'riverside living' flats, it is one of London’s most wonderful locals; a proper boozer with it own unmistakable identity. Magical junk-shop décor, vintage soundtrack, occasional live music, corking real ales and ciders, massive Sunday lunches and down-to-earth punters create a moody haven for chain-pub haters who like to keep this special secret to themselves. We don't blame them. While bar snacks can be snuffled by the fire, bigger meals are reserved for upstairs where a gorgeous Pandora's Box of a dining room serves a beautifully British menu with a moreish Mediterranean angle, and a wine list to match. Be prepared to fall in love with The Cat's Back. Instantly.
