Welcome to The Magdala
For history trail enthusiasts and ale appreciators alike, The Magdala provides a calm retreat in a location steeped in history. As with most historic landmarks, this pretty pub has a dark past - in 1955, tragedy set in when Ruth Ellis shot her lover outside. The only reminders are the bullet holes and plaque that remain as testimony to the incident.
Our philosophy is to offer wholesome, seasonal food from our daily changing menu, and excellent service. Our open, theatre-style kitchen allows you to see the chefs create all the dishes in front of your eyes. Our upstairs room creates a more intimate setting for diners or can also be hired out as a private function room. Whether you are looking for a meeting room, a private dining room or a party venue, The Magdala offers something for everyone.
One of the last remaining traditional watering holes, The Magdala boasts an old oak fireplace which provides a lovely backdrop; relax in front of its crackling flames with a tipple from the comprehensive supply of seasonal ales, great wines and craft beers.
