A much improved pub from what it used to be,a single large open roomed pub with nowdays a choice of twelve ales,my pint of Twickenham Naked Ladies was in decent shape.There is something about the pub that doesn't quite click with me,although I'm not sure what. I would visit again but wouldn't go out of my way.

This place has really changed since the new manager Ian took over before Christmas
Food is excellent, and an excellent range of drinks including a brilliant Sauvignon Blanc
Less postie based now, seems to be heading down the gastro pub route quality wise, but the prices haven't changed
Burger is amazing

A large single room, wrapped around the bar. All hard surfaces, wood floors etc plus music and a busy environment make for a noisy space, but its ok. Three plasmas showing cricket on my visit competed with the music and chatter for attention.
This pub is directly opposite Mount Pleasant sorting office so plenty of posties in, welcoming to all though, and a pleasant lady behind the bar who expertly served three seperate orders at once!
There are two banks of four pumps,serving at the time, Sharp's Doombar(x2), Cornish Coaster, Adnams Broadside, GK IPA, Hogs Back TEA, and Jennings World Biggest Liar(x2). Certainly a good range and my Coaster was an acceptable £2.75.
Long opening hours to accommodate the postal workers shifts. Dispensers sell sweets........I've never quite got that in a pub.
Beware the confusing steps on the way out of the gents!
