Tris C left this review about The Eight Bells

With a CAMRA listed interior of Some Regional Importance, this is a late Victorian pub with an inter-war years’ interior.
It’s carpeted with a C-shaped interior with pews to the periphery with very traditional pub tables and chairs, along the lines of the Britannia style. To the right, is an open kitchen. The bar front is clad in chamfered panels and although there’s no real bar back, there’s an attractive pot shelf, supported by brass columns. There’s a brick fireplace, the walls are bare wood field panelled to three quarter height and there’s a magnolia Anaglypta ceiling. Lighting comes from tasselled ceiling lights and similar sconces, both being quite bright. Décor is eclectic, comprising lots of framed prints, a grandfather clock, mirrors, knickknacks and patterned plates above the picture rail, which with the tassels, made drinking here a bit like being in the dayroom of an old people’s home; tinny music wafted over the room. Surprisingly busy, customers were a mixed local bunch, including a vicar, making for a good vibe.
There were four ales on: Doom, Pride, Yellow Panda Ale House(?) and Sambrook’s Junction at an agreeable £4.50 and in good shape too, served by a decent barman.
This is an interesting place, reminding me of a village pub; certainly worth a visit if in the area.

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.
