Situated in an area on the South Bank historically known as the ‘Larder of London’, Hornimans at Hays serves tasty British food in a warm, homely environment, and boasts an al fresco terrace for riverside summer dining. The pub sits on the site of a tea warehouse owned by Frederick Horniman, a famous tea dealer, and the décor features friezes depicting his travels to Africa, India and the Americas.
Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, the Hornimans At Hays menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.
The Hornimans At Hays bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.
Hornimans at The Hays in Southwark is a 7-minute walk from London Bridge Tube Station.

The food was grate, the serving was good. Inconvenient that they didn't give us a menu for drinks with the reason that finished most of them. We didn't have too many choices.
