Teddington Town is delighted to announce the reopening of one of Teddington’s favourite community pubs, The Waldegrave Arms in Waldegrave Road – a regular and favourite watering hole for thousands of students at St Mary’s University as well as the local community.

The pub, rebranded as the Waldegrave Arms and the Siyansh Cocktail Bar has undergone a massive facelift and will offer a wide range of traditional English dishes such as fish and chips and burgers as well as an Indian fusion range with favourite choices such as curries, tandoori dishes and a kids menu with fish fingers and pizzas.

It will open its doors this weekend with a restricted menu and ‘soft launch’ as a ‘test’ with a full grand opening planned for next week.

The pub, known affectionately as The Waldy, has been closed since the end of COVID and has now been taken over by Daxesh Patel, who has business interests in Wembley and Chiswick but is a big fan of Teddington and the local area.

“I fell in love with the area a long time ago when I used to visit the David Lloyd centre and friends of mine kept encouraging me to start a business in the area and I am really excited that we have been able to revive and relaunch the Waldegrave Arms, which has such a great history,” said Daxesh.

The pub, which will be open from 11am until 11pm, is  looking for extra staff including waiters, bartenders, cleaners and chefs and is keen to offer local people job opportunities.

There is a downstairs function room available for private hire and parties with a capacity of 25 people and 78 covers available in the main pub area, which also has massive screens for significant sporting events.

With the local student population specifically in mind the new look pub includes the Siyansh Cocktail bar ( named after the first name of his daughter Siya and his partner’s son Kiyans) which will offer a colourful array of cocktails and mocktails.

Daxesh added: “We want to be at the heart of the community in Teddington, sharing our common interests as well as providing food for everyone and retaining the atmosphere of a decent lively pub and meeting place.”
