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

Formerly the Egerton (and various other things before that), this place retains some of the original Irish decor despite yet another partial refurbishment. With menus and wine lists on the tables, it looks like a further effort is being made to take the place a bit upmarket (but the sports TVs, pool table and dart board are still there, as is much of the previous customer base if accents are anything to go by). The brewer's Tudor façade houses a 'L'-shaped bar, with various seating areas (some up a step) and the lounge area at the back in full use again. Patio beer garden. Now has two banks of four handpumps, but just Pride (£3.50) was available on this visit (with reversed Doom Bar clips also visible). The board outside proclaims 'craft beers', and I did note Meantime London Pale and London Lager on offer, along with Guinness Dublin Porter.

Now called Flynns with a sign advertising real ale and craft beer.Had a make over but the same as described by last reviewer.Doombar and Rocking Rudolph (I think)on cask.My definition of craft beer is at odds with the management.Had a font for the new Guinness -porter but sadly not yet available.

You can see from the photographs that this pub has a classic brewer's Tudor exterior. The same falseness prevails inside, with false beams and a couple of large fireplaces with stone cladding facings. There's more exposed brickwork around the place, plus masses of light coloured varnished woodwork. As far as I could see there is nothing original left in this pub.

But, having said that, it's not a bad pub. Furnishings are mainly solid wood tables, some banquettes, stools, and a few sofas here and there. At the front where the bar counter's located is a pool table and some seating. Around to the right and rear of the servery is another large room (clearly available for use although no-one was in there during my noon visit) with more sofas. I didn't spot much in the way of decor, although there is an abundance of framed QPR shirts, which I suppose is to be expected in this part of the world.

There were a couple of ales on - GKIPA and Twickenham Grandstand. I saw no sign of food or menus. This pub has clearly improved considerably since its days as Flanagan's and The Prince of Wales. Although it's certainly not a must visit pub, it's OK for a pint or two.
