About Us

A short stroll from the heart of London’s Forest Hill, the Railway Telegraph is a classic Victorian pub popular with locals and visitors.

A great place to find respite and refreshment on the road, too, it enjoys a convenient location right on London's South Circular.

The smart, spacious interior mixes traditional charm with modern comfort - with wooden floors, a feature fireplace and a bright, elegant dining room contributing to the welcoming atmosphere. 

Excellent ales, wines and spirits are served at the bar, complemented by classic pub food from the kitchen. Buffets can be provided for group events too, with private parties and business meetings all catered for.
