The Telegraph was named after Admiralty Telegraph, a shutter station which stood at the site from 1796-1848 to convey messages between London and Portsmouth at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. We would describe it as a country pub in the heart of London, enjoying beautiful views across Putney Heath, which was once itself described as ‘a wide expanse of open ground, uncultivated, where large crowds could assemble, horses could be raced, troops could be exercised and reviewed, duels could be fought and where highwaymen preyed on the increasing traffic along the Portsmouth Road’. Thankfully things are a little calmer nowadays.
We plan to carry out our refurbishment works through the winter and hope to open in April 2020 offering a beautiful Brunning and Price set in a lovely pub garden.

Being foodies at heart, our menu, is something of an eclectic mix, striking a balance of hearty pub classics, complemented by more exotic influences from around the world. It changes regularly and reflects the seasons but always offers a mix of traditional British dishes alongside something a little different.

With the help of the AllTrails App, we are planning to create a circular walk from the pub and through the surrounding area, to help you work up that thirst/appetite. You will be able to view the walk details via a number of ways (varying levels of tech savyness required -Ed)
