Malden man left this review about The Rylston

A flat roofed estate pub situated on Lillie Road, this place has had a bit of a shake up and seems to be trying to be something more than it originally was. An L-shaped interior, naturally with a fairly modern feel, there are lots of black and white photos of actors and musicians. To the front there is a terrace with awnings. A few TVs dotted about, the live football scores were showing on Saturday afternoon.
Mixed range of seating inside, there is an extensive wine list on a board and cocktails are offered. There is a steak night and through the week there is a pizza and drink deal for a tenner between 6 and 8.
Adnam's Bitter and Doom Bar on plus a cider from Orchard Pig. I had a half of the cider as my preference over those two.
This is by no means a destination pub but I quite liked my 15 minutes in here and I reckon they are trying to make something out of the place so good luck to them, best wishes.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Rylston

The former dire-looking Norman Arms has had something of a makeover, and no longer gives the appearance of a scary estate pub that you would cross the road to avoid, although nothing much can be done about the sheer ugliness of the building itself. Inside, it has been partly furbished to leave a 'L'-shaped layout, one branch of which has been optimistically set aside for dining. Limited decor, with a few large screens showing sport. Smartened-up patio beer garden. Just one of three handpumps was in operation, offering a rather indifferent pint of something unmemorable (possibly Doom Bar). Overall, it is obviously attempting to move upmarket - although almost anything would be an improvement - but the customer base doesn't seem to have changed that much (and it is still felt necessary to have door staff in the early evening).
