Tris C left this review about The Bell Inn

It would seem that this is no longer a locals' pub, frequented by students and staff from the French bank over the road though not at weekends when it's closed. It's absolutely correct that there's nothing of heritage value in here - it's one of the starkest pubs I've ever visited, with most of the seating coming in the form of red leatherette banquettes and sofas which might be ok for a group, but would require sharing if alone or in a couple. Luckily it was almost empty on our visit and may have had fewer customers if it weren't for the football, which though played on a modest sized TV, did rather dominate proceedings.
Ales: none real, with much ordinary fizz and Caledonian's Coast to Coast on keg at £2.50 a half which could have been a lot worse.
This pub is even more dull than the Globe across the road, though there's not much choice around here. Solution: don't drink round here.

Nick Davies left this review about The Sun Trap

Now refurbished into something that would not be out of place in a French suburb. Brightly lit, red banquette seating winding around the walls facing brown formica tables. Bar counter with the usual keg fonts - 1664, Fosters, cider etc but then an array of stuff more suited to a cafe. Food majors on breakfast then pizza later on. All three pubs around here are very popular with BNP-Paribas staff, I wonder if this one is set up to make them feel at home. Makes a change if you fancy a quick one while waiting for a train.

Rex Rattus left this review about The Constitution

Judging by the external architecture, this is a classic Victorian pub, but of course there is nothing inside remaining from that period. It’s clearly a locals’ pub, with a lively bunch of apparent regulars in at 3.00 PM on Friday afternoon. It’s carpeted throughout, with normal tables, chairs and a bit of banquette seating by the windows at the front. There was also a very friendly pub dog, and the radio station blaring out only provided an unwelcome increas to the ambient noise level. The inevitable TVs were thankfully switched off. There was a traditional looking fireplace on the left, and the only other feature of note was the very large mural size (circa 20’ x 3’) photograph above the bar gantry of the River Thames at night. There was no real ale, and no sign of any food available during my late lunchtime visit. I’m not likely to return.
