Situated as it is in the podium of a large 70's office block, this place certainly will not win any awards for character. Nevertheless, my visit on a recent Sunday afternoon was quite pleasant and the pub and clientele were perfectly civilised. I do accept however that pubs can be very different places at different times and I have heard reports of the pub being a focal point for local youth of an evening.
The front entrance leads to a wooden floored area with a few traditional four seater tables plus longer tables with bench seats. Up a couple of steps to the main room with the bar on the side wall. A plasma on the end wall was showing football. There are a couple of alcoves off the main area offering seclusion.
A surprising range, I felt, Jennings Cross Buttock (odd name!), Ringwood Porter, Wychwood Hobgoblin and Brakspears Bitter, discounted at £1.99.
It's part of the Marstons Taverns chain, and I did feel that a lot of the adverts around for cheap food and drink deals gave a bit of a 'Spoons feel to the place.
Despite any negativity I felt the place fine for an afternoon pint and I'd pop in again.

Ground floor of an office block outside the station doesn't sound much, but actually a nice, comfortable pub. Seemed to have some interesting beers, although mine was a bit past it so low score, but worth checking out again.

This has not been a pub for very long, having been an Indian restaurant until a few years ago. But although it has no pedigree as a pub, it always does some decent ales. On a recent visit it had on both Jennings Cumberland ale and Sneck Lifter. I had the Sneck Lifter which was excellent. This is not the sort of place you would want to seek out, but in my view it serves the best ale in New Malden, and is definitely worth dropping into if you happen to be passing and fancy a pint of something decent to drink.
