The Water Poet is a multi-tasking backstreet boozer with an array of spaces including a dining room, an enormous beer garden (with a barn!), a pool room and a downstairs cinema.

Proper pub grub, done well - served from 12pm until 930pm Monday to Saturday. Our irresistible and critically acclaimed roasts are served on Sundays between midday and 8pm, with booking advisable.

Best Sunday lunch I’ve ever had. Local produce and the meat was cooked to perfection. All the staff were really on the ball, the pub was full to the rafters, but didn’t feel like it. This was my 2nd visit, it won’t be the last.

Great service from the staff and very helpful, although I thought I had booked a dining area they were full but they found us a table to eat at so all worked out well.

I feel very lucky to have this on my doorstep. Been for beer and a burger. Also a Sunday lunch. Casual, busy but great service. The food was good too. Great pub food, super Sunday lunch. Good selection of beers and a good value wine list. I left full, happy and saying I'll go back as soon as I can.

We usually go for Friday lunch. Great value menu and the fish and chips are brilliant! Some of the best in London, always get served quickly and attentively.

Love this place and the Sunday Roasts are amazing... though you leave feeling very very full! Worth the money.

Usually a delicious Sunday roast venue. Although on this occasion the roast potatoes may have been reheated. Hard to cut and a bit...meh. Always a delicious Yorkshire pudding though.
