Amazing find and delicious Indian street food!
The staff were super friendly and helpful looking for a table for us when it was busy.
Great choice of ales on tap too. The pub had a really nice vibe about it and I would
definitely go back!

Found by accident, but now we will be back. 17 taps of amazing beers, plus super-cozy Sunday Indian-inspired roasts on Sunday. Also amazing plates menu available. Super secret gem. Friendly.stagg, highly recommended.

Don’t rely on the restaurant to honour your booking. We booked our table well in advance for our trip to London and received an automated email reply a few days before our arrival to say the Gladstone Arms had cancelled our reservation. No explanation as to why and our time slot is now showing as booked on their website! We are now left trying to find a Saturday evening booking elsewhere with most places fully booked. Thanks Gladstone!

I came here a few years ago and the Indo-Japanese fried chicken dish has always lingered in my memory. I think if you remember food for years it must be pretty special.
I was finally in the area again tonight and went back for the chicken. The staff were super friendly too, the building and decor were charming, music was good, prices weren't bad for the location, and we took part in a pub quiz and somehow came second and won a free round. Ticked all the boxes and more.

Surely this will now be one of my regular haunts in the area?! (Working around here I’ve been to them all!)
Service was just blinding, like I genuinely can’t remember the last time I received service like that.

From the owner to the chef.

Quirky and good selection of drinks.
Food was yummy, only had nibbles but will report back on more as will definitely be returning for mains etc.

Cute little rooftop patio place for a couple of tables, and peaceful there too!

Just had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon here and couldn’t get over how much they went out of their way so you can carry on, enjoy and have fun.

Top top banana.

The Gladstone Arms is a cute and tiny pub closer to Southwark and it is a small gem among the vastity of pubs in London.
A good gem.
It proposes interesting beers on tap and an interesting menu with an indian touch and all dishes come as either small - for a person whom is not very hungry - or large if you want to share the meal with some friends.
I was there with 3 friends and we took 1 large Avocado Papri Chaat and 1 Veggie Sliders and they were enough.
A huge PLUS and a great surprise it is the live music! Thursday, Saturday and Sunday there is live music with several bands or singers.
The place is a real treat and the staff and owners were very friendly too.

We booked the top room of the Glad for a hen party last month and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. I knew from past visits that the food was amazing and as we were celebrating on a Saturday night, there was likely to be entertainment downstairs. The room we booked was perfect for our party of twelve - good sound system and lighting, food was fantastic and arrived all on time and piping hot. There was live music on the ground floor later on which made it just perfect for the last part of the evening when we all gravitated downstairrs to the bar.
Thanks to the landlord and landlady for a fantastic evening - highly recommended for a party!

Popped into the Glad on a trip down memory lane with some friends who used to live in this area. The staff are really friendly and the pub is quirky. There is extra seating upstairs. They were serving food whilst we were there which looked nice (we had already eaten). Mixed ages.

Fantastic to see a pub brought back from the brink of destruction by developers. The Glad is now a proper pub with an excellent range of beers and gins, plus cocktails including a lethal espresso Martini, and a menu of excellent food. The only tiny gripe is that they have a small kitchen, so if you visit at a busy lunchtime, you’ll need to be prepared for a wait for your food. But on the plus side, this means a few more trips to the bar to try the range of beers. And the food really is excellent. An absolute gem.
