Old Sergeant (Pub)

Old Sergeant (Pub)

= History =

The Old Sergeant is a small public house, typical of the 'local' in many poorer parts of London. It is situated on Garratt Lane in Wandsworth, which in the 18th and 19 centuries was an exit road to the south. It is known to have existed under the same name (Old Sergeant) in 1785, when a John Nash held the licence. Later, it was owned by Earl Spencer and was purchased by Henry Young in 1857 and became tied to the Young's Brewery. The frontage has changed little over the years. The doors of the old coach-house can be still seen at the right of the building.
