As mentioned below the Phoenix is the closest pub to Buck House, but it was suited local office workers from around the Victoria area, rather than tourists, who were packing it out on the early after work Thursday evening last.
Part of the Geronimo Inns chain it has the usual modern stripped back interiors you associate with this chain and the central support pillar is now a bit more restrained yellow and white Humphry straw design colouring.
The main serving bar may be very modern in its design and I am sure the industrial metal racking in front of a white tiled wall may appeal to some, but I still prefer a more traditional pub experience. Also the bar serving area is fairly short in size, meaning that at busy times you have to queue quite a way back, almost into the tables in the central space. When you do get to the bar there are four ale pumps, and these had Redemption Pale Ale, Youngs Bitter, St Austell Proper Job and Dorking brewery Washington gold on for my visit. And then on the craft side Camden Hells and Pale and Beavertown Neck oil were on the taps.
The pub was very busy, and it was even standing room only in the garden section as well. I would certainly consider it again, especially when considering a place to eat with the good lady when in this part of town, but as a pub experience there’s a lot of competition nearby and this one didn’t really do it for me personally.

Unfortunately no real ale of any great strength in this busy pub so I had to settle for cider. Will not be returning to this one.

By the perimeter wall of Buck Pal lies this mid-sized pub. Interior is a modern faux-rustic stripped back single room done out in cream shades, with the exception of the funkily-coloured central support pillar and a small section of wall with burlesque wallpaper(!) as mentioned below. Surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening, clientèle were mainly young, urban types of the sort you can imagine complaining about how broke they are and how expensive London is whilst downing their third bottle of £5+ lager and eating a main course costing northwards of 15 sheets. Four ales on; Youngs Bitter, Doom Bar, Redemption Hopspur and Adnams Ghost Ship. I tried a half of the latter and got a decent drop for my troubles. Unusually for central London, there is a sizeable rear beer garden. Not too bad, overall, but once was enough.
