The Cats Back - London, London



The owner of the Pub lost his cat for a whole month and ended up naming the place after that happy day when he strolled back. A brief history of the place would have to go back to 1865 when the pub was first built. As a terraced lightermans pub It was called \\\"Ye olde house and home\\\" and presumably provided those facilities to roughneck Thames and Wandle river workers. At one stage in the late 1700\\\'s the river Wandle was the most densely industrialised river in Europe and though the area has changed more recently the last vestiges of industry have only in the last few years been replaced by Luxury residential riverside flat developments. Most certainly the pub would have been flattened had it not been for the dogged insistence of the owner that the London pub needs preserving. The 80\\\'s and 90\\\'s ripped traditional London pub culture to pieces. The pubs that haven\\\'t been knocked down and redeveloped as flats have been bought up by international corporations. The Cats back team some of whom have worked at the place for over ten years enjoy a local community position that some may say has no place in our new homogenised and corporate world. The pubs great atmosphere and warm and friendly welcome makes it a fantastic place for everyone to be. The beer garden is a lovely place to relax with a refreshing drink during the summer months. Disabled access and friendly staff are on hand throughout the premises, making this pub easily accessible for all.
