Dating from the mid-18th century in some form, this has been a McMullen’s pub since 2012, with a less than successful refurb in 2018.
It’s a spacious interior which kicks off some way to the rear, with two raised areas with normal furniture, areas with lower floors having the tall stuff. There’s wallpaper which looks distressed, rather than actually being so, which matches the distressed Victorian-style chandeliers, a little bare brick and substantial exposed timber members above the bar; a black cast iron helical staircase lead up to a function room. The floor is modern bare boarded, the ceiling black Anaglypta and customers who seemed to be a mix of noisy locals and office workers.
Ales: AK, IPA and Country at a very decent £2.30 a half and not bad.
This is a much better place than the phalanx of Greene King outlets that infest the area, but it’s not great, let down by the loud music and distracting TVs showing the football, which typically no one was watching.

This is a Taylor Walker branded pub situated in a corner location, so I didn't expect too much but the beer range was actually pretty good. There are two banks of handpumps on the side wall bar, across them were Sambrooks Wandle, Hogs Back Summer Lightning, GK Abbot, Youngs London Gold, Adnams Broadside, Tim Taylor's Landlord, Pride plus Tribute and Bombardier "conditioning". Two ciders from Westons too plus Meantime IPA on a font. Ok nothing to set the pulse racing but a decent choice nonetheless. The pub itself is a long open space and has been fitted out in a modern typical London style with pseudo dark wood but recent characterless fittings, semi-raised areas front and back and with a few screens dotted about showing motorsports on Saturday afternoon. Wooden flooring but with a tiled splash area along the length of the bar. Outdoor pavement seating to the front. The usual large menus were on the tables and food was clearly popular with the tourists who seem to be the main visitors, presumably due to the proximity to the Tate Gallery. Nice to see that the staff routinely explained the etiquette and procedure for ordering food and drink to them as they entered instead of allowing them to sit and wait expectantly. Not bad for a TW outlet.
