Beer House

Address: Waterloo Station Concourse, London SE1 7ND

Basement bar on the concourse at Waterloo (Main) railway station – it’s opposite platforms 1 – 4.

Beer House, Waterloo Station, London

Up until autumn 2012 this was a pub know as The Wellesley (review of Wellesley here) but it’s now been taken over by The Beer House company who also operate a small bar on Charing Cross station.

Unlike the Beer House at Charing Cross, the Waterloo pub is much larger. So far the red-branded decor of the interior hasn’t changed at all from when it was the Wellesley – maybe that will change in the future. The red pretend canopy has disappeared from the outside though.

Another difference from the Charing Cross Beer House is that the Waterloo one does carry some real ales as well as a selection of keg craft beers. The¬†selection¬†is unfortunately a bit staid with Fullers London Pride, Greene King IPA and Sharp’s Doom Bar on my first visit – all beers found widely across London. I am told though that the London Pride did taste good – so that’s a definite improvement on the Wellesley. Hopefully the Beer House will be moving towards a more interesting selection in the future – to go alongside their large selection of craft beers.

Food is available, but I haven’t eaten here. There is also free wi-fi.

Sad to say that I won’t be rushing back to the Beer House unless beer selection improves – I’ll be walking round to the nearby Kings Arms.

    I agree with the other reviewers, the Kings Arms is streets ahead of anywhere else around here. Beer House occasionally has something good, but I HATE their toilets with a passion.
