Come down to experience some fantastic fringe theatre, spectacular live music gigs, monthly blues jams, the Clapham Comedy Club, writing groups and social clubs, or just to sample one of our many real ales.
We decided to buy our own pub back in 1995 to give us a permanent base and licence. After some searching we bought the Bowyer Arms, a Grade 2 listed building designed by Thomas Cubitt. The following year the Bread and Roses opened its doors and won CAMRA best pub refurbishment of the year.
The pub’s name is inspired by a poem associated with the 1912 US textile workers’ strike that makes the point ‘Hearts starve as well as bodies, give us bread but give us roses!’
