Stillwater is Wandsworth Common’s only cocktail bar and we’re pretty serious about the quality of our drinks.
Right now, Dan Priseman, owner and bartener, is working on our full cocktail list – ready in August; in the meantime our cocktail list comprises a selection of our own creations, a few classics and simple twists on well-known drinks; and don’t be shy to name your drink or opt for ‘bartender’s choice’, if you want to go off-menu.
Additionally we have a small, but well considered wine list has been carefully chosen by TV’s Joe Wadsack and accompanies a well represented Champagne selection and a trio of enjoyable beers.
The original recipe for Southern Comfort, faithfully recreated. Fresh peaches, vanilla, cloves and cinnamon macerated in Four Roses bourbon. Sweetened with organic honey and lengthened with a splash of ginger ale. A true taste of the Southern States. £9

Dick Bradsell is known for his Espresso Martini, but this creation is a close second. Beefeater Gin, homemade lemon sherbet, and a splash of Merlet Creme de Mure combined to create a true thirst quencher. Served over crushed ice. £9

Piña Colada Old Fashioned
