This is a late Georgian pub, famous for being the place into which the blood-soaked Lady Lucan stumbled, having been attacked by her husband Lord Lucan, who had just murdered the nanny by mistake; yup, it’s that type of area. Despite being in a very desirable residential location, it’s closed at weekends, meaning that it depends on office workers and tourists for custom; clearly the more discerning locals drink elsewhere.
The interior is typical identikit Greene King, so I can’t be bothered to describe it as it’s recently well covered by BF.
Ales: one pump reversed, Abbot, GK IPA and something called Gangly Ghoul which was utterly sour; I didn’t attempt another sip and made for the door.
This is by no means a great pub, but it’s worth a stab.

Greene King tied house,with some outside seating to the front and quite a small interior.There is a jumble of furniture types,sofas,high tables,dining tables but with little order and looking worn.The bar runs along the left hand wall and the only charming spot is beyond the bar ,down a slope to a small red leather bench seat in front of an unused fireplace with a good mirror above and at the bottom of the steps leading to the first floor dining area called the Lucan Suite.However the presence of a flatscreen here may impact the atmosphere when it's switched on.
There are a lot of Lucan references here but seemingly for the titillation of tourists.The internal paint scheme of grey and light blue does help a little,the muzak was decent,but the main body of the pub is featureless.
There are 4 handpumps but only one operational with GK IPA,the Abbott was settling.So I swerved onto keg Beavertown Gamma Ray (£6.50) ,which along with their Neck Oil seemed a much better option than the single cask ale.The food is from the corporate GK menu,not overly expensive for the area but totally bland ,food service rubbish.
In such an upmarket location it is surprising to see such a sloppy operation with a lack of care.It could be some much better if only it could escape the dead hand of Greene King ownership.

Another nondescript pub with weak real ale. Point off for serving a pint instead of a half.
