This is a Greene King with their Taylor Walker branding. There were predictable GK ales on, plus Wimbledon SW19, a summer ale that rocked in at a hefty £2.60 a half. I think it's much less of a gastro-pub than that encountered by a previous reviewer. They have returned to the usual corporate large illustrated menus featuring the usual pub grub. The cod & chips was £12.99, which was not cheap, but consistent with the expensive ale prices.

It's comfortably furnished, as is the way with these Taylor Walker pubs being mainly carpeted, with only a few tall tables/tall stools by the windows and furnished mainly with normal tables and chairs. The bar back is a nice piece (and I am referring to pub fittings here); it looks old, possibly Victorian, but I didn't see anything else of note in the way of fittings and decor.

This pub seemed a cut above the average as far as Taylor Walker pubs are concerned, with prices similarly a cut above the average.

Another unexceptional pub. Little ale and maybe I was put off by the hugely obese Americans who followed me in.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Earls Court Tavern

It has been rebranded as a Taylor Walker pub since I was last here in 2009, but - unlike most of this chain's outlets - it seems to be aimed more at the gastro-pub crowd rather than the 'Olde London' tourist market. Lighter decor than most too, and menus on clipboards rather than the normal corporate ones. I recall from my previous visit that it has fully opening front windows to get a bit of air circulating on a hot summer's day, but it was hardly the weather for that this time. Four real ales on: Pride, Bombardier, Directors and ESB (very expensive at £4.59, less a 10% discount for Camra card holders that the staff knew nothing about but eventually found on the till).
