The Oval Tavern

131 Oval Rd,

Hidden down a residential street a short walk away from East Croydon Station, The Oval’s brimming passion for live music puts it at the heart of Croydon’s cultural scene.

The Oval Tavern take great pride in fostering a warm and welcoming ambiance reminiscent of a traditional ‘local’—a place where forging new connections comes effortlessly. Our decor exudes an eclectic charm with vintage accents, boasting an array of quirky furniture pieces and hidden corners waiting to be discovered.

Presently, we delight in offering six handpulls featuring a dynamic rotation of premium ales, showcasing a strong preference for local brews, notably from The Cronx Brewery. Being featured in The Good Beer Guide for two consecutive years fills us with immense pride. Additionally, our extensive selection includes bottled beers, ciders, and the esteemed Gosnell’s Mead, crafted just a stone’s throw away in Peckham.

For wine enthusiasts, we offer a carefully curated selection, including two organic options. But perhaps the crowning jewel of our culinary offerings is our decadent roasts, crafted with love and best savoured alongside the soothing melodies of live jazz every Sunday afternoon.
