The Truscott Arms
The Truscott Arms is a beautiful space, with natural light flooding through the huge windows, ceiling roses and solid wood floors. The pub is a huge supporter of local independent businesses, so you’ll only find London’s best craft beers on tap. And if cocktails are more your things, then you should definitely taste one of their exotic-tea infused cocktail. Our choice would certainly be The Mews Breakfast, containing Hayman’s Old Tom, cointreau and clementine marmalade.
