The Britannia

44 Kipling Street
London SE1 3RU

Whisky lovers willing to travel to south London simply must set a date to peruse The Britannia's ludicrously long list of Scotches at the very soonest opportunity. I have written elsewhere about the happy hours I spent exploring a good few of this pub's many malts during my first visit, last November, and on my return T and I somehow managed to restrain ourselves to a single dram each - he a 10-year-old Ardbeg (tasting note: seawater) and myself a 12-year-old Bunnahabhain (sweetish peat). Twelve down, 88 to go.


  1. Apparently, the owner of the Kipling has permission to turn it into flats. So probably best to move rather quickly.

  2. The above post should read that the the owner of the Britannia, not the Kipling, has development plans. Having said that, a pub called the Kipling sounds like a lovely place to have a gin and tonic.
