Decent enough boozer on the edge of Ham Common,the interior is L shaped with a fine brick fireplace to the left,traditional furniture throughout and much wood panelling.The bar mirrors the internal shape and has 6 handpumps offering on my visit Adnams Broadside,CW Youngs Bitter,Fullers London Pride and Southern Star (ok condition) with two pumps unused.Food looks firmly pub grub,although there are daily specials on a board.There is a very decent walled beer garden at the rear and a few benches by the entrance giving pleasant views over the common.
Solid pub,proper atmosphere but a rather mundane ale selection lessens the appeal of a revisit.

A traditional pub, one room with a central bar, carpeted and wallpapered walls, plenty of seating with food in mind. Six hand pumps with a fairly basic selection of four on,Robinsons Trooper, London Pride, Adnams Broadside and Youngs bitter, the Youngs beer was served in very good condition and was the best I've tasted it in a long while.
A nice enough pub for a passing pint but no more than that.

The New inn on Ham common is very much a traditional pub. No music or television blasting out here so one can eat and drink in peace. 4 real ales are served here although the prices of drinks are a shade higher than the local competition. There is a daily specials board and a printed menu. The food is a high quality with good portions but again the cost of the meals are in our opinion about 20% overpriced.The staff are first rate and despite the higher costs we thoroughly enjoy visiting this pub.For more comfort eat in the conservatory area It does tend to be very dog friendly so if you hate Dogs then this might be negative for you. thankfully never many kids in here. Recommended.

This is quite a large pub situated on the edge of Ham Common. The original building on the site was known as The White Hart, with the name changing to The New Inn when the current pub was built in 1756 although it did have a spell as The Hobart Arms named after a local dignitary.
Nowadays the pub is one large area with a central bar, the room winding on beyond the bar to the right, ultimately leading to the rear garden. Carpeted and the walls decorated with hunting scenes, copper artifacts and the usual B&W local scenes, the pub has a comfortable homely feel. A TV in one corner was showing some routine documentary. Food is expensive going by the specials board and the paper menu sheets laid out on the tables.
Five handpumps dispensing a frankly mundane selection of four, London Pride, Youngs Ordinary x2, Adnams Broadside and Courage Directors. The Pride and Directors were branded as guest beers which to me shows a distinct lack of imagination.
The pub itself is clean and tidy, comfortable and probably a nice spot for a bit of lunch but the ale selection won't have me rushing back.

There were three or four mainstream ales on, including Young’s Bitter, London Pride, and Courage Directors. The Young’s Bitter was £1.65 a half, so something like £3.30 a pint, and while not cheap has regrettably become the going rate for a session ale in London. On my midweek lunchtime visit the lunchtime specials were listed on a chalkboard above the fireplace, ranging from £9.25 for a veggie stuffed pepper dish to £16.95 for a sirloin steak plus trimmings. The printed menus on the tables were similarly priced, and included a range of sandwiches from £5 to £6. Homemade desserts were advertised at £4.95.
The pub itself is OK, in a prominent position sited on a bend in the road right by Ham Common. Inside it’s traditionally furnished – carpeted, with some banquette seating round the sides, but otherwise essentially dark varnished normal tables and chairs. Wall decor is nothing special, seemingly old hunting prints and black and white photographs, but with shelves high on the walls bearing numerous copper jugs, pots and the like. I particularly liked the brick built fireplace on the left with the chimney breast sporting more copper implements – but no horse brasses. There are a handful of picnic tables at the front. There were no children in there during my visit, but it must be child friendly as there is a disabled/baby changing toilet.
I got a nice welcome from the chatty barmaid (about the weather of course). This is a clean, comfortable, well- maintained pub in one of the nicer parts of SW London, with a reasonable, if not exciting, ale selection. I would be happy to visit again.

As you approach the New Inn your first impression is highly favourable. Situated facing Ham Common in a semi rural location and it look like an old fashioned traditional English inn. Once inside we were not disappointed. Oak beams, a open log fire and low key decoration. the seating is comfortable and we found the staff to be friendly and efficient although they did not look smart. Rough casual best described their dress sense. The drinks included some cask ales are properly presented albeit slightly more expensive than other local hostelries. Their is a printed menu and a special board. The food is only average and only real gripe was the price of the food was inflated and poor value for money. A small neat beer garden at the rear. Certainly recommended for a visit especially if you enjoy a reasonably quiet drink no loud music or television here.
