This was my first visit since James Blunt's takeover, and the refurbishment seems to have been fairly sympathetic. It's now more food-centric than the old fashioned boozer it used to be, as well as more expensive. Main courses are around £16 - £17, with sirloin steak at £24. The real ales are at top of the range prices as well, with three on - Truman's Swift (£4.70); Old Speckled Hen (£4.80); and St Austell Tribute (£4.90). My pint of Tribute was served quite short in a dimpled mug, but was in good condition.

The pub still retains the two separate rooms that earned it its place on CAMRA's National Inventory of pubs with historic interiors. Unfortunately all the inter-war antique furniture has been replaced with a mish-mash of stuff - a couple of armchairs and new fixed bench seating in the old public bar on the left, and normal tables and chairs in the room on the right. They've added a conservatory at the back, but this doesn't impinge on the heritage features in the pub proper. The room on the left has a dartboard, a rack with newspapers in it, and a fox on the mantlepiece with a gun, presumably off to bag a pheasant in a less than traditional way for a fox to hunt a pheasant. The room on the right had menus on all the tables, so I guess might be regarded as the dining room.

On the plus side, they have removed some of the paint from the exterior to reveal the original green brewery tiling. This is still a delightful little pub, despite the top of the range prices, and is my favourite of the Fulham Broadway pubs.

Tidy enough pub with GKIPA and Abbot on hand pump. We liked this place.

Two room cobbled side street (mews, almost) boozer with some good historical touches in the small interior (CAMRA heritage listed), with lots of dark wood and glass. Otherwise, fairly uncomplicated. Basic rear courtyard from which you can hear the roar of the crowd in Stamford Bridge. Popular with the Chelsea fans and our arrival was in the aftermath of the pre-match drinking before the Bradford game, so just GK Abbot available in a plastic cup and we were asked to be quick as they were shutting the pub for an hour to tidy up. Mentioned elsewhere that Leonard Rossiter used to live next door. Best summed up by Rex below; “It's worth a visit, but probably only one visit unless you are a fan of Greene King”.

This is a low-ceilinged two-room pub with plenty of dark wood, located in a small terraced road just off the Fulham Road, just a few minutes' walk from Stamford Bridge. Only GKIPA and Abbott Ale on – the GKIPA at £3.00 a pint is a tad overpriced in my view. As you enter the pub you are faced with the side of the smallish central bar, which would undoubtedly have been used for off sales at some stage. The TV was on in the left hand (public) bar showing (of course!) the Villa v Chelsea game, watched by a handful of locals. The saloon bar on the right seems a bit more comfortable, although retaining the feel of a real pub.
This pub has the feel of a backstreet local to me, with comfortable seating and friendly bar staff. It's worth a visit, but probably only one visit unless you are a fan of Greene King ales.
