I paid my first visit to this pub since the SW Pub Company took it over from Antic. It's obviously now less shabby than it was, with most of the knick-knacks around the place having been given the heave-ho, though I did spot some sort of bagatelle type game on the wall near the fireplace on the left. There's a bit of outside seating at the front.

However, there are some massive pluses. The only furnishings are normal tables and chairs, and the ale choices were excellent. There were five real ales on - Whitstable Pearl of Kent; Rooster's Franklin; Liquid Mistress Red IPA; something called Little Hopster; and ELB Foundation (£4.20 a pint). There was also Newton Court Gaping Goose cider on handpump. I was told that they do food, but I didn't see a menu as I was in too early (around 4.0 PM) to see the evening menu.

This is easily the best pub in this part of Clapham. It's certainly worth a re-visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The King & Co

Reopened in its present form for just under a year, this is a modern-style alehouse with mostly basic canteen-type furniture around the reversed 'J'-shape bar. Has a open kitchen at one end, with the cuisine seeming to change at intervals (currently a "Vinn Goute Seychelles" pop-up, whatever that means...). Also has a few tables out on the front patio terrace. A total of six handpumps on the counter, dispensing two real ales from Bad Co - Love over Gold and Wild Gravity, Little Hopster (£3.80), Cloudwater Pale, Marble Bitter and a cider. Several less-common imported keg offerings too (e.g. Schremser Hausbier and Founders All Day IPA). NB - Bottled beers, ciders and wines available to take away at a 25% discount).

They had on three ales when I visited on Saturday afternoon – Bateman’s Rosey Nosey; A black IPA called Loki or something similar, and Purple Moose Madog’s Ale (£3.50 a pint), plus a draught cider, with a couple of handpumps unused. This is not particularly good by Antic standards, but I wasn’t complaining as the Madog’s Ale was a super drop of beer. No sign of food, but Antic pubs usually do food so perhaps we hit this pub between food times.

But everything else about the pub was pure Antic. There were all kinds of odd things about the place – a sideboard covered with plasticine models (kids’ playthings perhaps?), old clocks, a lemon yellow stepladder hung on a wall (presumably a decorative feature, but you can never be entirely sure in an Antic pub), a shelf bearing old vinyl 45s, and a couple of old bagatelle boards hung above a fireplace. There were a few more traditional things, such as a (Welsh?) dresser, a piano, and a bar billiards table. Old pump clips are displayed all over the place – presumably of beers available at one time – and the bus ticket themed wallpaper was a new one on me. The trademark mismatched furniture is here as well. It’s quite small by Antic standards, with just the one room surrounding the central horseshoe bar.

I usually (but not always) like Antic pubs, and this is one of the nicer ones that I’ve visited. It didn’t have the random look that several of them have. It almost looks as if someone planned what it should look like! I would be very happy to visit again.

Philip Carter left this review about The Grey Goose

Used to be called the 100 Pub. The outside colour scheme has changed. Will update later. Changed names again, now called The Grey Goose. Food served all day. Has a mix of chairs, no real ale as far as I could tell, but 1/2 pint of Guinness £1.95.
