The Surrey & South London Bar Mess covers Croydon, Isleworth, Guildford and Kingston Crown Courts. After a period of inactivity, we have resurrected the Mess, elected a new committee and increased the number of social events held.

We have now held two ‘Winter Warmers’, in December 2015 and November 2016, at the Winemakers Club in Farringdon. Both were extremely well-attended by Judges and members of the Bar.

In the summer of 2016, we held a Judges’ drinks at the gardens of Isleworth Crown Court, and we are holding a similar event in Kingston on 23rd February 2017.

Our Annual Dinner will take place on the spring of 2017 – further details to follow shortly.


All queries and applications for membership are dealt with by the Secretary.

It costs £20 per year to join the SSLBM.
