Favourite London Pub. Saturday is the time to come, as its very quiet. Mid week, I've rarely been able to get a seat.

Wonderful interior - island bar with snob screens, lots of wood. Youngs speacial in good condition.

ORIGINAL REVIEW Jan 2015

A revisit after at least 10 years,and glad to report that the interior is still unchanged ,unspoiled and a classic.The snob screens to either side of the horseshoe bar,the etched glass windows,the leather upholstered seating and the polyphon (will be played for a donation to charity) are all noteworth in an interior which is quite small.There is a square snug beyond the righthand side of the bar,and food is served these days which smelt good but not sampled on my Friday after work trip,a time when the pub is very busy with a wide age range of customers all drawn by it's charm.
Things have improved on the ale front,with only three Charles Wells brewed ales (Youngs Winter Warmer,London Gold and Special) and guests in the shape of Redemption Bloomsbury Blend (good nick),Sharps Cornish Coaster,Adnams Southwold Bitter and Old Ale (well kept).Maybe not the most exciting guest list on my trip,although a more regular customer and friend did say that often the guest list is much stronger.
Worth a visit for the interior alone,and now with decent real ale,this is somewhere to head for and enjoy.

UPDATE

A new team here have reduced the ale options.On my trip Youngs Original and Special were both doubled up,along with Sambrooks Junction and Wimbledon Copper Leaf leaving the only realistic decent option of St Austell Proper Job which quickly ran out on a Friday evening.So we ran out !
A classic pub interior badly let down by a poor ale choice.Downgrade.

Ah yes. One of London’s classic alehouses. A great interior, no doubt about that. And a great atmosphere too. But still I don’t feel like London takes care of its most special pubs quite as well as other cities. Then again, maybe the nature of the city these days makes that impossible. there was an awful stench in here, presumably caused by the cooked food (does a pub like this even need the gastro element, really?). And it’s another place where I was made to feel like a luddite dinosaur for paying with cash. Still a must visit though, but frustratingly short of the brilliance it should be.
