The Devonshire in SW12

This is a 19th century pub with a fantastic end of the century gin palace interior, largely intact, garnering a CAMRA * rating, visible on their website.
The finery is rather spectacular, especially the lobby (see photo) which probably explains why Young’s hasn’t ravaged it in the way that a grizzly bear mauls a hiker. The rear has been altered somewhat – proof that Young’s just doesn’t know when to stop – furnished with some modern hotel bar-style furniture such as an intimate small lounge-style mini booth for two. Customers were professional local types, one with an annoying barking dog and many eating, all to a banal backing track.
There’s Special and London Original of course, the preferred Proper Job option ‘coming soon’ (but not soon enough), a bit lame for a Thursday evening, so it was more Neck Oil at £3.70 a half.
This place is worth a sniff for the interior – hence the score – and one to include on a crawl, certainly better than the Bedford and Regent, but for a prolonged stay, the Balham Bowls Club is the one to beat.

April 2024. Plovdiv. For a city the size of Nottingham or Newcastle, Plovdiv seemed remarkably compact, bar the slog of a walk to the outer bus station in unseasonably hot weather. Back in Kapana from the museum-heavy Old Town, we spent our lone night ticking the craft, because it’s what ....

Looks like we'll be missing this one as well if the 21st June gets the vote (currently leading). We're in Budva in Montenegro drinking who knows what.:p
