I called in on the way back to Putney Bridge station after the game at Craven Cottage - it seemed rude not to. To be honest, the crowd was so large that I didn't fancy joining a jostling horde on the platform and thought the pub might be a better option, but it grew crowded here quite quickly, so I didn't stop long. The pub seems to be one large room, presumably opened out from at least two, with a central bar counter. There were two hand pumps on the right corner and two on the left, which I couldn't see very well because of the crowd, so had to ask what was on: Fullers London Pride, Sharps Doom Bar, Bath Gem and Otter Ale. I went for the Otter, just for a change, but found it a little disappointing and lightweight. Partly this may have been an illusion caused by the use of a plastic glass (being so close to the football ground, though the Fulham supporters struck me as being a fairly civilised lot), so I wouldn't want to say that the beer was not well kept. Looking round, there was a lot to like about this pub, with its wood-panelled walls and many pictures and mirrors. My score of 7 is based to some extent on what I imagine the pub would be like on a non-match day: not so crowded and noisy, and with proper glassware, rather than my actual experience.

A very nice traditional pub that has the advantage of being the closest pub to Putney Bridge station and therefore a good place to catch a pint if alighting or waiting for someone. The traditional style carpeted interior with a horseshoe bar has been well described by previous reviewers and am glad to report that both the inside space and the several external tables on the pavement out the front were being well utilised for my mid week evening visit.
Have never eaten here, but the reviews for food on trip advisor are pretty encouraging especially from people who utilise it when staying in the nearby Premier Inn. But unfortunately my experience for the beer hasn’t always been so encouraging as it was again the other evening. As below only two of the three pumps in operation dispensing the standard Pride and Doombar and these were average at best. Something that was compounded by noticing that the reversed clip was Skinners Betty Stogs which would have been far preferable to the other two.
Its proximity to the Fulham and Chelsea football grounds makes it a popular pub when there is a game on and the pub is away supporter friendly as mentioned previously. However, although the outside area makes this a good place to catch an alfresco pint when the sun is out, not on match days when the local council regulations do not allow any outside drinking before, during or after the match.
