The Crane

The site of this Wandsworth pub might be known to some by its former name, The Armoury. It was recently taken over by a couple who have given it a new lick of paint – and its old name back. 

The menu goes big on burgers and pizzas. The beef burgers (all served medium-rare and with bacon and cheese) includes a 'firebrand', with grilled jalapenos, aioli and baby spinach, and a 'bravas', with paprika ketchup. Pizzas range from a margherita to a Mediterranean (tomato sauce, mozzarella, anchovy, olives, capers and rocket) and a pumpkin and feta, with pine nuts, rocket, and a classic tomato sauce. 

And to drink? Expect craft beer, ales on tap and a detailed wine list with options from worlds old and new.

The Crane says
We are a modern take on a local, run by Craig and Stephanie, and our aim is to provide a second home for our customers.

Built in 1738, The Crane is officially the oldest pub in Wandsworth. We specialise in gourmet dirty burgers and fat pizzas – all of which are handmade on site by our chef. All brioche buns are made from scratch in our kitchen, and our range of classic pizzas are handcrafted with your favourite toppings. We believe in using fresh local produce and our beef comes from a nearby butcher.

When we met our chef Simon Crabtree we knew instantly that he would be perfect for The Crane. His vision of how our food should taste and be presented mirrored ours completely. We want our customers to be excited when they see their food being brought out to them, and for them to do a little dance in their seat when they eat. That is what we have achieved. Simon spent years perfecting his signature bravas sauce which is used across the spectrum of the menu.

We have an eye-watering gin and whisky collection that is usually only found in specialist bars. For gin lovers we have favourites such as Tanqueray, Sipsmith and Gin Mare to enjoy. Those who are fans of single malt whisky will find it hard to choose between Talisker, Port Ruighe, 18-year-old Glenfiddich and 16-year-old Lagavulin. The end result is a friendly, homely and modern local that we are very proud of.
