The nearest pub to To Do List HQ is under new management, with a new name and a new look! The team behind The Fat Walrus have been working 24/7 preparing to open, and Wednesday looks set to be the big day.

We can’t wait to pop in for a pint or three and to try the food which, from the pictures shared on social media, looks pretty damn good!

Amazing blogger Sophia Hinton-Lever said in her blog Enough About Me here:

The new place to watch out for in 2016 is the new pub ‘The Fat Walrus’. The brain child of David Mitchell and Gareth Knight previous managers of the New Cross House (now under Greene King management) is set to take the place of New Cross’s favourite pub. Located in the old Haberdasher’s spot right next to Goldsmiths University, the vibrant, friendly vibe accompanied by a good selection of beers and ales is not something you should miss. It is scheduled to open in early January, so keep a ear out for The Fat Walrus, it’s got a ring to it.


The Fat Walrus is the latest excuse – as if you need one – to hop on the Overground down to New Cross!
