This place dates from the late 19th century, situated in the still socially mixed Pimlico. On approach, the upmarket beer patio gin umbrellas give the impression that this is going to be some upmarket gastropub, but actually it isn’t. It’s a hostel upstairs, with a young, clearly transient rather glum customer base – sparsely populated mid-Saturday evening – coupled with some older cackling more local types, typically smoking outside (obs).
The interior is on CAMRA’s inventory for having an interior of regional importance and also grade II-listed. The main draw here is an attractive bar back in the left bar with its fine etched mirrors and ornate fireplace; the remainder seems quite modern: floor, lighting and so on. The right bar also features good etched windows but an open kitchen, devoted to the pub staple that is the burger; one bloke seemed to be eating his own food from a Tupperware bowl. Other fittings seem modern with a dark blue/grey colour scheme to the dado, mushroom paint to the picture rail, then white remainder and to the ceiling also.
There was a cider and two ales on, Wandle and Big Hug Brewing’s Juicy Pale at a very agreeable of £4.40 and a reasonable pint it was too.
The previous reviewer sums proceedings up perfectly in that it too reminds me of the Phoenix and that this place also gets a ‘4’ for the heritage bits and real ale, but not much else; the other pub visited was the Constitution where fun is part of the curriculum, if not decent ale.

Still mostly as mentioned previously, retaining its separate bar rooms, along with three different entrances and it looks the business from outside. However, it's in essence a glorified hostel, and those in attendance on my brief visit were all on laptops, making the screens tuned into BBC News 24 pretty much redundant. Two ales at least - Sharp's Atlantic and Sambrook Wandle, with an un-noted cider on a further handpump (shame on me). The Wandle was inoffensive enough, but the prevailing atmosphere, summed up by the disinterested barmaid, reminded me much of Marylebone/Lisson Grove's Phoenix. There is a potentially cracking real ale pub here - and they could still keep the hostel bit upstairs that obviously ticks them over (70+ rooms for God-knows how much each night). They get a '4' for the Heritage bits and the real ale only.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about White Ferry House

Attractive tapered building, which looks from outside like it has probably been 'done up' inside (but thankfully it hasn't). The two bars remain separate, and the furniture and decor is traditional. Offers cheap accommodation, so can be quite busy in the saloon bar with people checking in and out. Two handpumps in each bar, offering Courage Best and Bombardier (normally £3.20, but £2.90 during the happy hour, and served in the right glass).
