The Water Poet’s famous St Patrick’s Day party returns in full Friday night form this year. Widely acknowledged to be one of London’s best pubs for Paddy’s Day, the Irish-owned Water Poet goes all out every 17th March, and this year is set to be the best ever with a whole week of events rounding up with St Paddy’s day itself and of course, the finals of the Six Nations at the weekend.
From Monday onwards the menu will feature all the best dishes from the Emerald Isle available throughout the week including potato veloute, Dublin Bay prawns, spiced silverside of Irish beef, Gur cake, and of course a traditional Irish Stew!
The craic kicks off in full fashion on Wednesday with Irish comedy downstairs and a free Meet the Brewer event with Irish craft beer masters Bru in the garden barn. Come down and try Bru’s eclectic range of beers, sup on a free pint and test your tastebuds with a chance to win prizes in a blind tasting challenge.

If drowning yourself in Guinness isn’t your thing, the Water Poet is hosting a beer, whiskey and food matching evening in their Dining Room. With five courses celebrating Ireland’s diverse larder of fantastic ingredients and artisan products paired with a range of cocktails, beers and whiskeys, this event will showcase the unsung heroes of Irish food and drink.
Thursday 16th MARCH, 7.30 for 8pm.
£25 per person (food and drink included), booking essential.
St. Patrick’s Day itself sees the return of London’s favourite St. Patrick’s Day party. Water Poet favourites Black Velvet Band, return to captivate the garden and play the best Irish tunes live on Friday night from 6pm with all bars, including our garden bar serving oceans of Guinness. With an Irish menu available all day and night, the drinks flowing non-stop and Irish singalongs aplenty inside and out, the craic will be mighty.
