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

Hidden away in a small square (but don't expect the typical London area of leafy greenery, more the sort of scruffy courtyard to be found in a technical college that has somehow become the University of Somewhere-you-have-never-heard-of). The pub interior was probably thought to be modern by the architect, but the ceiling seems to be too low and thus used to be quite gloomy inside with dark decor and semi-traditional furniture (but things have improved substantially following a recent refurbishment). Also has a few wooden benches outside. Italian food menu. Formerly a Youngs house, Ordinary is still a regular from the two banks of three handpumps, with Doom Bar, Wandle and Naked Ladies also available on this visit... NB - Open Monday to Friday only.

The signage proclaims this to be a Young's pub, but the only Young's ale on was their Bitter, but also on were Doom Bar, St Austell Tribute, and Twickenham Naked ladies (£1.90 a half). Clipboard menus are on the tables, with pizze at £10.50 a pop, and other stuff is not overly expensive for the area - the standard burger with blue cheese, onions, bacon and fries is £9.50.

This is a modern, new build (80s I think) blockhouse style pub (well named as the Square Tavern) in a new build residential development. Inside, the servery takes up most of the pub space; it's nicely carpeted, has a couple of tall tables/tall stools, but is mainly furnished with normal tables and chairs. The dartboard is still there, and has apparently suffered considerable use over the years. When I was in there was a mix of apparent regular locals and office workers in there.

40 to 50 years ago I would have thought a pub like this to be the bee's knees, and maybe in 50 - 100 years time if it's still standing my successors will be enthusing about the heritage value of an unspoilt 1980s pub, but just at the moment it's not really my favourite style of pub. But having said that, it's definitely still a real pub.

This pub was better than expected and is well described below. Very busy with office workers despite my 8.45 pm Wednesday visit. So full in fact that I knew I'd wait an age to get served so actually went to another pub. That said this place very much resembles a hotel bar. Twickenham Brewery's Naked Ladies was on pump. I'd come here again but I wouldn't make an effort to do so.
