Coming Soon: The Fat Walrus

The Fat Walrus has taken over The Old Haberdasher pub (44 Lewisham Way), strengthening ties between the great families of South East London and Odobenidae. The team have been in touch to let us know that they are aiming to reopen in January 2016.

The use of a jolly, eccentric anthropomorphic figurehead is promising, as is the fact that they're moving quickly to get the pub back open, after it was sold earlier this year. They've already managed to garner some positive coverage via a blog called Enough About Me, which says:

"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."
