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

Traditional-looking 'L'-shaped bar - obviously opened out from its original layout as there are two front doors - with some unusual bench seats under the front windows. Dining area in a rear conservatory which connects to a separate little building housing another room featuring the kitchen servery. Small covered smoking area to one side. Loud rumble of tube trains. Now has six handpumps, five of which were on, featuring an improved selection of Ringwood Best (£3.60), Cumberland, Wandle, Twickenham Naked Ladies and Brains SA. Overall, although service was a bit slow on this visit (but at least an apology was given), it remains a friendly place with a reasonable atmosphere.

aleand hearty left this review about The Raven

Essentially, a medium sized three-roomer, that belies its small exterior frontage. The main square shaped room is white walled and quite plainly decorated, with bare floorboards, traditional tables and chairs, plus pews use to make several booth type areas. However, this being west London, there are the almost obligatory large candles gracing the tables. Leading off the main room, is a furnished corridor / conservatory, used as a drinking area in its own right, connecting to a dining area to the rear. There is also a partially covered courtyard to the side of the pub.

Four hand pumps at the bar were serving safe choices in Spitfire, Hobgoblin and Tribute, plus the new to me Manns ‘St George & the Dragon’, which I understand to be a re-badged Wadworth beer. However, the quality of the latter two was perfectly acceptable, if not quite the best. Service from the young female bar staff was very friendly and I’m sure they contributed to the relaxed feel of the place. A good early evening atmosphere when I called, with some classic rock playing in the background and the inevitable commuters clearing the Underground dust from their throats, with a swifty on the way home. It’s a solid rather than inspirational sort of pub, but overall, I rather liked the place and would call again if in the area.

Across the road from stamford brook underground station. A larger pub than you initially think with a bar area, dining area and courtyard. 4 real ales and food served. Live music, quiz and poker nights advertised.
