Bucking Fastard left this review about Anglesea Arms

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.

Tucked away on a side street the interior is still pretty much as described below. 6 real ales and food served.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Anglesea Arms

Despite being in a distinctly upmarket area, this pub thankfully retains a traditional and relatively unpretentious feel. The layout has presumably been opened out at some stage, but the mix of furniture and array of decoration seems to work quite well. Rear dining room. Large front patio. Six beers on handpump: Wandle, Adnams Southwold and Broadside, Cornish Coaster, Old Speckled Hen and a rare London outing for Greene King XX Mild (£3.60). Overall, justifiably busy and well worth seeking out. (NB - Review dates from April 2012.)
