A traditional looking pub located down a side street but just off of the Fulham Road, it has an attractive appearance with lots of hanging baskets and was very busy on our Saturday afternoon visit with far more punters on the terrace outside and even spilling out on to the pavement than there were inside.

It’s quite traditional in terms of décor with dark wooden boards on the floor, dark wood panelling on the wall to the left and some yellow patterned wallpaper to the right. A small tiled fireplace was off to one side although it looked as though this was probably no longer used, and above this was an oil painting of a reclining nude. Elsewhere was a large Burton Ales mirror as well as some old black and white photographs and a couple of TV screens, although fortunately these were not in use on our visit. The room was broken up a little with some wood and glass partitioning, and some of the glass was attractively etched. Green padded bench seating was around much of the perimeter. A further room down a few steps to the left had a “Please waited to be seated” lectern at the entrance, so was presumably intended for dining.

Beers on tap were Moncada Notting Hill APA, Abbott Ale, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Sambrook’s Wandle, St Austell Tribute and Greene King IPA. Prices seemed expensive with a couple of pints coming in at a hefty £12.

After a sweaty afternoon pottering around the Natural History and V&A museums, I decided it was time for a pint or two and the reviews made me pick this one to start. This is a compact street corner pub in a quiet area and has a bit of backstory as a ‘CAMRA pub’ back in the 70’s when such outlets were few and far between. These days it is owned by Greene King! A few steps up to the outside patio and enter to a fairly traditional interior with light varnished wood, old oil paintings, some glass portioning panels and a generally respectable air, though the bunch of squawking middle aged females who thought they had some sort of god-given right to take up as much space by the bar as possible were a pain. Half a dozen pumps; 2x GK, London Pride, St Austell Tribute, Bedlam (went off) and Vale Brill (not so brill in the drinking, NBSS 2). Not too expensive for the location, at least. The beer let down what otherwise would have been a decent visit. I’d be prepared to give it another go though. 6.5

The last time I was in here was a fateful day in April 1976 when my beloved Crystal Palace ,then in the Third Division,lost a FA Cup Semi Final to a brutally physical Southampton side at nearby Stamford Bridge.The trauma of the result has coloured my view of that day including the prematch drinks in here,several pints of Theakston's Old Peculier.The Anglesea was a rare free house in those days and featured in the 1976 GBG,and it is also in the 2018 GBG,although these days under the ownership of Greene King.
The old two bar layout is gone but many fine original features remain,with lots of wood panelling,a decent barback with an old clock above.There is an open plan feel to the tap room,but half high dividers create some discreet areas to sit,while the furniture is pleasingly traditional and wooden,with prints and paintings on the walls and a large Salt & Co.brewery mirror.At the rear there is a charming restaurant at a lower level,and the menu looks like a proper chef is at work ,with mains starting at £13 but quickly veering towards £20.No sign of any corporate GK menus,thankfully.
There are 6 handpumps ,with GK IPA and another reversed which I suspect would have been another dull GK brew ,leaving guests on my visit of Signature Brew Extra Pale Ale,Vale Brill,Hop Stuff Fusilier,and a very well kept Bedlam Smash ,£4.45.Not the most exciting of line ups,but I was impressed by the quality.
The fireplace was not working,and on a cold day nor was the central heating.The barman was brusque not only to me but most customers , maybe that's his personal style.As a result,despite no muzak,gaming machines or other modern intrusions there wasn't a homely atmosphere.No children here ,it's over 21's only.
The surrounding area has gone massively upmarket since my last visit,and I would certainly pop in again if in the area having exorcised the ghosts of the past.
