Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Hammersmith Ram

Just what you would expect from a Youngs town-centre pub - nothing too exciting, but a well-maintained establishment with reasonable beer. However, the bar staff aren't always too clued-up about who to serve next and which sort of glass to use for each drink. Although it is a reasonably-sized pub, the layout is a bit cramped because the narrow frontage leads to a long, thin building with two main rooms joined by a narrow-ish opening located just where everybody needs to stand to get served. A few small tables can also be found at the front. Four handpumps in each half of the bar, typically offering Ordinary and Special plus one or two others, e.g. Proper Job and Twickenham Grandstand (£5.15, ouch!) on my latest visit.

The structure of the pub is pretty much as described by the previous reviewer, but it sounds as if the decor has changed quite dramatically since then. The interior has nothing of heritage value in it now that I saw. It's clearly been extended to the rear, with a smallish outside drinking, and presumably smoking, area to the side of the building. The furnishings are a mix of sofas, banquettes with cushions, and some cheap looking tables with metal framed chairs. There's also a tall table at the centre of the room at the front wrapped round some pillars, with a pile of games at its centre. There were eight tall stools accompanying it.

The dark wood panelling and false ceiling beams appear to have been given the heave-ho. Everything is distressed looking, including the floorboards and window frames - although the bay windows on the left facing Angel Walk are still an attractive feature. Of course there's plenty of exposed brickwork of the appearance suggesting that it was never intended to be seen by human eye. There was also a new one on me - a chipboard ceiling in the front room. I've never even seen that even in an Antic pub.

This is still a Young's pub apparently, which is a good thing bearing in mind the ancient Young's signage on the exterior. Predictably the beers included Young's Bitter and Special, with a couple of guests in Wimbledon Pitbull, some rugby themed 4.5% ale, and St Austell Proper Job at £2.50 a half. I thought that I had misheard the barmaid at first, but she confirmed that I hadn't. Being a Young's pub they do food at weekday lunchtimes. The "Venison and apple burger, Peri Las blue cheese, mayo, tomato, little gem lettuce, fries" is 13.50, and the steal & Young's ale pie, seasonal veg and gravy is 15 (or £15.00 presumably).

I didn't take to this place much. I didn't like the prices (I know, I am in London), nor the modernist decor. I suspect that it might have cost a fortune to make a place look like this.

This is a very long and deep pub, presumably extended to the rear. Due to this and despite windows to the side as well as each end, the interior is rather dark, areas of the walls have dark wood panelling and there are a number of fake blackened ceiling beams. The pub is basically one continuous space but is partially separated into what feels like three distinct sections with the bar running between the front and middle areas. I did a bit of tooing and froing between the front and middle attempting to understand the best spot for getting served as the barmaid appeared to randomly select people and go from one spot to another but I did get there in the end. The beers are from Youngs, nothing to excite, just Ordinary Bitter, Special, London Gold and Bombardier on during my visit.
There is an extensive food menu which never suggests freshly prepared, "Wee Bites", "Sarnies", wraps, baked spuds, mains, separate burger menu etc. Bangers and mash £8.45, BLT £5.50. Wines are listed on a chalkboard over the bar.
Decor includes various old portraits, cartoons and caricatures. Various tools and a stepladder were lying around too but I doubt this was some sort of modern art exhibition. Flooring is wooden of differing types and the seating is mixed with standard issue, plain wooden benches and sofas being the main options.
At the far rear doors lead to a small patio area with seating and some cover.
I didn't really take to this pub but I struggle to describe why as there is no one thing I can point too and blame, it just felt a bit below standard in many areas. When I lived not too far away in the 80s this was a solid if unspectacular Young's house called The Builder's Arms, I think I preferred it back then.
