  • This location is shown only to members

The Gorringe Park pub is recently renovated and is a few yards from Tooting overground station and a short bus ride from Tooting Broadway tube station.

The plan: 

Meet at 6.30pm for drinks/dinner & a bit of socialising before the free movie at 8.30pm - which will be Behind the Candelabra.

Please add a comment when you RSVP as to whether you'll be joining from 6.30pm or if you'll be joining later on for just the film - so Rachel knows how many & who to expect & when.

The Film: Behind the Candelabra(2013)

Based on the autobiographical novel, the tempestuous 6-year relationship between Liberace and his (much younger) lover, Scott Thorson, is recounted.

Director: Steven SoderberghWriters: Richard LaGravenese (screenplay), Scott Thorson(book), 1 more credit »Stars: Matt DamonScott BakulaEric Zuckerman |See full cast and crew »


The Boutique Cinema:

Boutique artisan popcorn, saved cinema seats (the fab old ones), giant bean bags, a three piece suite, huge leg room, surround sound, high definition cinema projection, special cinema dinner trays,  “some like it tots” - mums (and dads) cinema club, home baked cookies, popping candy, it has to be one of the funkiest little cinema rooms in London!

The pub:



A relaxed & informative welcome awaits you at our pub. We have extensively refurbished the entire building from top to bottom (& lower) to create a fantastic pub for Tooting & London. 

Having been in London for just over a year with our amazing site in between London Euston & St Pancras train stations - The Somers Town Coffee House, we are hooked on ‘city life’. As boys from the sticks we bring all the ethics you would expect with us & the countryside way of doing things, like saying good morning to people on the street - we’ve certainly had a few strange looks! 

So, take a look around here, see what we are all about & then come & see us for yourself. We have 6 real ales on tap, a great wine list, extensive soft drinks, fab homemade & locally sourced food, a boutique cinema room & a library room for dining on the first floor, what more could you want?...oh, we have a secret garden with a fire pit as well. 

So come on in & enjoy yourself, Josh, Scott, Stevie & all the team
