Not obvious as you wander around,tucked away but this Fuller's tied house is well worth a visit and a great example of a mews pub.
You enter into a short corridor with the three sided bar to the right serving a front section with a large collection of GBG's,and a rear snug with Members Only inscribed in the glass partition.This small snug is full of bar stools and regulars.To the left is a lounge area with a decent fireplace and dining type tables extending back into the building.Up a flight of stairs is the Library,a dining area that can be hired but I didn't investigate.
The food is from a short Fuller's menu with small plates £6,Sandwiches with chips £8,a median Main at £13 and some daily specials which all sounded good.
Thankfully Fullers have not gone corporate with the interior,there is a lot of wood panelling,no flatscreens nor muzak and chatter rules the waves.Wonderfully authentic with Thomas Crapper wash hand basins in the gents.
The Great Train robbers were meant to have planned their heist in here and it does feel like toffs and crims could easily have rubbed shoulders in here in the past.Thankfully being hidden away keeps any tourist throng to a minimum and it does have a boozer atmosphere.
The bar supports 5 handpumps with on my trip Fullers London Pride,ESB,Seafarers,Dark Star Sunburst (NBSS 3.5) and a guest in Windsor & Eton Knight of the Garter.The long standing GBG entry is fully justified and I would very happily return to this fine pub.

Tucked away down a private mews, this isn’t somewhere you’re likely to stumble across by accident, and even though I was actively looking for it, first impressions were that you were entering the German embassy rather than finding a pub. Once there though, you’ll find an attractive looking pub with plenty of hanging baskets outside and etched glass in the windows.

Internally it consists of a small bar to the right and a larger room to the left that is perhaps more intended for dining. Seating in the smaller bar was limited with a few high stools around the bar counter where a few locals were congregating. An extensive pile of Good Beer Guides were stacked up on the window sill. Décor wise it’s quite traditional with old boards on the floor that have been worn smooth over the years, covered in some places with large rugs, dark wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and cream painted wallpaper up above. A couple of old fireplaces were off to the left, although at least one of them was clearly no longer used being stacked up with a pile of board games. A few black and white pencil drawings were dotted around the walls.

Beers on tap were predominantly from Fuller’s with their ESB, London Pride and Oliver’s Island, and these were joined by Wild Beer Bibble and Tiny Rebel Cwtch. The solitary cider was Cornish Orchards. All in all, a pretty decent little pub that’s worth making the effort to track down.

Historic pub just off Belgravia Square. noted for past associations with the great train robbers and the Profumo affair. Nowadays it has a pleasant dining room feel, with tasteful furnishings. There is a small corner for the regulars by the bar, with a tiny snug for landlord's friends behind, but most people end up in the one large room which is mainly tabled. There is also an upstairs room available for hire, and a couple of tables on the pavement. Beers are from the wider Fullers range, with a very nice pint of Hophead supplied on this occasion.
