Gastro type pub? The food is cooked in full view of the customers. Prices are a bit high, Guinness £3.35 a pint. No real ale. Boring grey interior. May be worth a visit. Update, has had a makeover, food now cooked out of sight. Looks too clinical now. Character gone completely and prices goneout f my price range.

Gastropubby Fuller's Pub adjacent to Battersea Park station. Tastefully if genereically furnished; Has lots of sketches of old cars hung on the walls, perhaps harking back to a previous incarnation as a mechanic's workshop.

Unusually for a Fuller's pub, the ale selection is limited to just two handpumps, dispensing Pride (obviously) and a guest, in this case Gales' Spring Sprinter. The latter was tasty, albeit at an eye-watering £3.99. I suppose I should be grateful - a fortnight ago it would have been £4. Lots of tables had 'reserved' notices on them with a football club appearing to have block booked. There is an open plan layout with the kitchen partially exposed to the bar area.

Overall it is average, clearly aimed at the local upmarket demographic but no great shakes as a drinker's hangout.

This is essentially a restaurant, or perhaps more accurately a gastro-pub as I was able to purchase just a drink and sit at one of the tables – but a waitress did ask me if I wanted a lunch menu. There is an open plan kitchen, table service for diners, bare-boarded floor, and thick, solid, scrubbed tables. The smell of food pervades the place – how could it not do so with an open plan kitchen? It’s like any other gastro-pub you’ve been in.

There were two ales on; London Pride and Fuller’s Jack Frost. I had the latter, at the gastro-pub price of £3.50 a pint. The trouble with these high-ceilinged, bare-boarded places with solid wooden furniture is that they can get too noisy with all the sounds bouncing off everything. The food might be good – I don’t know, I didn’t try it – but it’s not really my type of place.
