The Grenadier in SW1

As mentioned, this place is difficult to find, not least because of the off-putting sign which informs the visitor that the mews is private.
With a drinking patio to the right side, the exterior is well described by BF, however the interior looks to have been modified in some way, not looking anywhere near as rustic as the photos on CAMRA’s site, for this has an interior of Regional Importance; really?
It’s as described below, but is the metal bar gantry really original? Likewise, the bar front which looks modern and certainly the modern dark boarded floor, which doesn’t appear on CAMRA’s site. Otherwise, it’s a small pub, with two rear rooms, the one to the left with tables laid for dining, topped with wine bottles with a ‘reserved’ tab fixed to their necks. There are bottle green velvet curtains and dark wood wainscotting, above which are drinking ledges. Lighting comes from attractive hanging lamps with fluted glass shades, along with modest brass chandeliers and there’s a log burning stove, which looks decorative rather than functional. The main talking point in here is the glass cabinet displaying a uniform of the Grenadier Guards. There were two tables up front with groups of tourists, thereafter two groups of jolly young northern hipsters. There’s a carpeted snug to the rear right, with a group of jolly older northerners, less hipster, more hip replacement.
Three ales were on: GK IPA, Cedric’s Debt(?) ‘coming soon’ and Landlord at £5.40 a pint and good, 30p cheaper than the Little Driver, a down-at-heel pub in Bow, so Belgravia, one of the world’s most expensive areas is cheaper than an East End boozer?
I wasn’t so enamoured of this place. It’s ok, but I wonder if it has been messed about a bit and recently too. I doubt I’d make a return visit, but this is miles better than the awful Walton Arms, but no match for the Nag’s Head.

Handsome stone building, named for the owners of nearby Althorp, that was once a coaching inn, well, so it is said, there are lots of places that claim to have been coaching inns in places where it's difficult to believe coaches aver ran. It's now a GK Chef and Brewer and any history inside has long since been ripped out.

Most of it is, as usual for this format, laid up for eating. There is a non-eating bit to the right clustered around a fireplace, with, as is usual for this format, furnished so that you have to perch a metre or more above the floor. We declined to perch a metre or more above the floor and unlaid one of the many unoccupied tables. There's a terrace commanding views of the huge car park.

Anyway you know the form, nothing to see here, but a couple of plus points: tip top TT Landlord (the other choice was GKIPA); and thankfully they're resisted the temptation to indulge in Lady Di nonsense.

In a time of raw material shortages, the need to supply the Wehrmacht with beer put extra strain on Dutch brewers. Especially as they mostly insisted on getting Pilsner, that is beer of the highest gravity. Dutch brewers were afraid that, if they had to deliver exclusively stronger beer to the ....
