One Over The Ait F


or a pub, opened recently by Fuller’s Brewery, this should more rightly be


known as “One Over The Eight”, an old term meaning having had one too many. The Ait is actually a small cluster of nearby islands in the middle of the Thames, near to this riverside boozer. The design, by Simple Simon Design, takes its cue from the history of this part of the River Thames making extensive use of reclaimed materials. The interiors eclectic furniture creates a unique space with intriguing design features such as a circular internal fire pit, old column radiators used as beer fonts, copper-clad bars and a bespoke spiral staircase – all echoing traditional features of wharf warehouses found on this side of the Thames. It has unique lighting elements including an original 15-foot wooden rowing skiff above the bar on the ground floor, reclaimed marine lights and an antique copper gin still above the top floor bar. This is a great fun pub. A wharf-style, two-floor brick building with a first-floor terrace and extensive outside seating areas with good views over the river. One Over The Ait, 8 Kew Bridge Road, Mddx. TW8. Tel: +44 (0)20 3581 5700 www.oneovertheait.co.uk
