Best place for a date
Try the Toy Shop Bar for distinctive cocktails- our favourite is a Slinky Margarita, a twist on the original margarita, it contains bee-pollen infused tequila and grapefruit oils.
Their vegetarian menu also comes highly recommended.
It’s common to see runners and cyclists making the most of the local parks such as Putney Heath, Wandsworth Park and the famous Richmond Park, to name just a few. Along the river, walkers can enjoy the Putney to Richmond Thames Path walk, an 8 mile meander that follows the course of the Oxford and Cambridge boat race.
For those who love being on (or in) the water, Putney has both a canoeing club and a diving club.
The Putney Sub Aqua Club holds diving sessions both in the UK and abroad, as well as local social events. The Putney Bridge Canoe Club offers training and open water sessions for all levels of canoeists and kayakers, on the Thames and further afield.
Putney has a lot to offer in terms of cafes, bars and restaurants. Of course, there are many traditional British pubs to choose from too, some located right on the river bank itself.
We've selected a few of our favourite places that help make Putney unique:

Best place for a coffee
If you’re a bit of a coffee fiend, Artisan may be of interest to you. After spending a year working in the coffee regions of Uganda, owners Edwin and Magda decided to open a café in Putney following the growing trend of independently owned coffee shops across the capital.
