Working in Putney
We are pleased to bring you a new LentaSpace Location Guide, designed to give you a feel for what it’s like to work in Putney. We have included everything essential – how long it will take you travel to work, where to stop for coffee enroute, where to go for the best street food at lunch, where to buy that last minute birthday present and finally, where to gather with your work mates for post work drinks.
Transport links are great in the Putney area with the Putney mainline railway station taking you directly into London Waterloo in around 15 minutes and the East Putney District Line connecting the area to West London and Paddington Station.
Bus routes serving Putney include the 337 which enables easy commute from both Richmond and Clapham.
If you like to support local independent coffee places for your morning caffeine hit, you need to try out Arise Coffee Roasters, 2 Plaza Gardens, who – surprise surprise – roast their own beans on site to give you the perfect tasting cup. You can also enjoy their heathy light menu in their onsite café, have food and drinks delivered and buy ground coffee to drink at home.
Another local independent is Dropshot Coffee, at East Putney Station, who offer a great hot menu of sandwiches and bagels to start the day.
Places for lunch
There is a branch of the popular chain Tortilla at 95 Putney High St, offering all of the classic Mexican dishes which work perfectly to take away, including burritos, tacos and salad bowls, all custom made to your requirements.
If sushi is your lunch of choice, then head to Ohayu Sushi Putney, 3 Keswick Broadway, (or order online in advance) for an authentic menu, with some great lunchtime set menu options, including sashimi, tempura, nigiri etc.
You really are spoilt for choice for shopping options if you work around Putney. First stop has to be Putney Exchange, the shopping centre on Putney High St. The Exchange houses a mix of stores, including the regular brands such as Waitrose, L’Occitane and Oliver Bonas as well as independent boutiques like Aigoo, which offers a carefully curated collection of clothing, stationary and gifts.
If you are a vinyl fan, then you might while away a few lunchtimes in Soul Brother Records, 1 Keswick Rd, who stock thousands of collectors vintage records as well as new soul, jazz and funk releases.
Post work drinks
With its riverside location, The Boathouse, 32 Brewhouse Lane, owned by the Youngs Brewery, is also the perfect spot for post work drinks with great views from the 2nd floor open terrace.
If a proper London pub is more your style, East Putney Tavern, 94-98 Upper Richmond Rd, will not disappoint with its warm but modern wood interior, a courtyard beer garden and plenty of craft beers on tap and a good gin and cocktail menu.
