Welcome to The Cavendish Arms.

(scroll down for details of our massive comedy competition happening this week and next week!!)

Hello, welcome to the official website of The Cavendish Arms. We like to think of oursleves as the hidden gem of Stockwell, an 'arts' pub tucked away on a quiet residential street only five minutes walk from Stockwell tube station. We strive to bring you live entertainment seven days a week and we specialise in live music, comedy and cabaret and our intimate events rival any others in town.

Our pub (pictured above) has the cozy feel of living room, only it comes complete with a fully stocked bar. Relax and put your feet up on our comfy chesterfield sofas whilst listening to our great playlist and tucking into one of our stonebaked pizzas! And of course, sipping on a drink from our wide selection of beers, wines and spirits. 

Our backroom (pictured below) is the perfect setting for intimate live events. Our weekly comedy nights run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and are some of the most popular nights on the London circuit. We run live music events most Fridays and Saturdays and showcase some of the best bands and solo artists from London and beyond.

The venue is also available to hire and is frequently used for private parties, band rehearsals, photo shoots and video shoots. So why not hold your next event with us?
