The Oval Tavern

131 Oval Rd,

The Oval Tavern is a cosy, family-friendly venue, with a real community atmosphere. Both traditional and quirky, The Oval is also a vibrant part of the Croydon scene: we are passionate about live music.

We pride ourselves on our relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a proper ‘local’ – it is easy to make new friends here! Our décor is eclectic with a vintage touch, full of quirky pieces of furniture and many nooks and crannies.

We can now boast six handpulls dispensing an ever-changing range of quality ales, with an emphasis on local brews; partic ularly The Cronx Brewery. We are proud to be in The Good Beer Guide for two years running! We have a full selection of bottled beers and ciders, and are proud to stock Gosnell’s Mead made just up the road in Peckham. A fine range of wines await you – two of which are organic, we’re pleased to say.

Made with love, our roasts are immense and best enjoyed washed down with some quality live jazz every Sunday lunchtime.
