  • Visitor Information

A pleasant chain bar with wooden floors and furniture, the Pitcher & Piano offers a decent range of wines, spirits and beers in a stylish yet comfortable environment. They also have a reasonable gastropub style food menu. The P & P (as its affectionately know by those who frequent it) has become something of a London institution since setting up the first of its bars in Fulham in 1986.
