Festive Season at The Surprise

Having been described by The Gentleman’s Journal as one of the cosiest pubs in London we’re ready to make your Christmas lunch or dinner a joyful, delicious and stress-free occasion.

Our head chef has created a delicious menu, with plenty of festive favourites using only the best seasonal, locally sourced produce from our fantastic suppliers. With drinks packages from award-winning wine merchants Jeroboams, from bubbles to espresso martinis, we’ve got everything covered for a treat to remember.

We are able to accommodate parties in the Hamilton Room with up to 35 guests seated. The Surprise is also available for private hire for larger groups, please do let us know if this would be of interest.
