Lovely looking pub from outside and smartly done up inside. Plenty of empty tables at the rear of the pub but for diners only. Bad.Four handpumps in use inc Winter Warmer.My pint of Special was as it said special.Young,s pubs now have decent keg beer as well with 2 each from Meantime and Camden.

This is a Young’s house, which had on Bitter, Special and London Gold. The Bitter was a reasonable £3 a pint as I recall. I was in too late to see a lunch menu, but there was a bar snacks menu on the tables during my late afternoon visit, offering such delicacies as home made pork crackling (£3), scotch eggs (£3.50), and home baked foccacia pizza slabs (£9.95).
This is another magnificent Victorian edifice, complete with brown marble pillars outside, but which has been completely made over inside. There are numerous doors leading to the street, most not in use now, which tell us of its erstwhile multi room format. But in one corner there remains a large area of some magnificent original tiling, which Young’s must value as there are back lit photographs of the most impressive detail on the bar back. At one time this would have been a magnificent example of an extravagant Victorian “gin place”, but now (apart from the tiling) it’s really nothing very special. There are loads of tall tables/stools, although to be honest there are sufficient normal tables and chairs. It’s worth popping in to have a butcher’s at the tiling if you like that sort of thing, and although it’s an “OK” pub, otherwise not really worth going out of your way for.

I remember this pub from years ago when it was a traditional Young’s pub. On a recent visit I found that it still is, although it has gone a bit gastro. I suppose you have to in this area. Part of the pub is given over to a restaurant area. There is some attractive tiling behind the bar.

Refurbished Youngs' Pub on the New Kings Road, heavily food-orientated and quiet on a Tuesday afternoon when I dropped in. London Gold in good nick but expensive at £3.30. The decor in here is standard Young's modernisation; High tables & chairs, modern sofas 'n' benches and cream outdoor furniture. I left without it forming a lasting impression and perhaps this is due to its close proximity to the White Horse, which for my money is the best pub in London and outshines this place completely in terms of beer.
