Description
Situated on the edge of Wimbledon Common, The award winning Hand in Hand offers a feel of a village life in the heart of London. Originally a bakery ( you can still dine in the old oven area) and dating back to 1835, it has continually offered a good honest selection of beer and food in plentiful portions! Hair of the Dog ? Here at The Hand in Hand we more than encourage you to bring along your four legged friends, complementary Dog biscuits and the chance to be our coveted Dog of the Day make it the perfect pit stop for owners and pampered pooches alike. Join us for a summer of sport as we screen all the World Cup and Wimbledon Championship matches live from the Hand.
