I first came here about 30 years ago and pop in occasionally, the last time being three years ago and it hasn’t changed one bit. This is a Grade II-listed pub which dates from the 1820s but is home to a very charming CAMRA Nationally Important Historic Interior, remodelled in 1933, as does probably the rough stucco and fake quoins - the pub was originally bare brick. No prizes for guessing that this was a former Charrington’s pub, as evinced by the ‘Sherry Bar’, ‘Private Bar’ and ‘Campden Bar’ window writing in the brewer’s classic red lettering.
As mentioned, it has a quirky sloping bare boarded or red lino floor and stalls, accessed through narrow doorways, just like the ones in the Prince Alfred (W9) and Angel (SE16). Low ceilings, of course and much charm, there’s plenty of wood and seating in the form of some settles, affording a little privacy in cosy nooks; the glass 'barrel' hanging lamps are very novel.
However, what’s not so attractive is the incredible number of CCTV hemispheres - it’s like having a drink in HMP Belmarsh. There are other problems which seem to dog the pub: it’s frequently very crowded and finding a seat is a lottery. In addition, it seems to take staff an age to clear up when diners leave, with cutlery, plates and used napkins littering tables. The modern tubular steel bar gantries are a bit of an eyesore too.
There’s a fair mix of people in here, often some groups of very exuberant American tourists. A more recent visit noted a group of very jolly Yorkshire men in one corner, of young entitled women in another, moaning about the lack of something or other most would consider a privilege, a combination I'd call Last of the Summer Whine.
There are typically around four ales with TT Landlord as a staple at a blistering £5.30 a pint. I would say that this is a must-visit if in this borough, but the prices are crazy - the Uxbridge Arms next door serves up Landlord for ‘only’ £4.60, but of course it’s not the tourist magnet that is this place.

Quirky bare boarded interior that's split into about 4 different sections mind your head if moving between them. 2 sets of 5 real ale taps mostly doubles.

I like Quinno's comment below a lovely Heritage Pub in Poshville, as that does some it up. The pub has a country pub style theme to it, which I liked. The pub was busy on our Sunday afternoon visit and we found if you just want to pop in for a drink, you're fighting a losing battle. After a long wait, we did manage to get a Windsor and Eton Knight of the Garter. Then we had the problem of finding a seat and there wasn't enough room to stand, so we went out to the beer garden with a covered maquee. There were six ales to choose from and a large vessel of mulled wine on the bar, which smelt nice.
