Unless you live nearby, it’s a ‘bit of a mission’ to get to The Spencer Arms, on the edge of Putney Heath. But locals count themselves lucky. Drinks as well as the food are good here; the wine list has plenty to offer the curious, though most punters stick to the ‘very decent’ house wines or one of the beers on tap. The reasonably priced menu of ‘gutsy’, ‘tasty’ food changes regularly, but quality & lack of pretension are watchwords. Select several tapas-sized dishes to share – devilled whitebait, grilled asparagus, & Cornish yarg with pickled onion all might feature – or eat more formally by ordering pies, sausages, risottos or Sunday roasts. The normally efficient & friendly service can slow down under pressure on summer evenings & at weekends, so arrive early.
