Very close to South Ken tube ,this street corner pub was temporarily covered in scaffolding,so I didn't clock any interesting external features.Owned by Greene King,but still retaining a pub atmosphere ,the island bar is surrounded by differing sections,high tables to the front,a long red leather bench down the side,and a larger rear area with a mix of high tables,some banquettes in their own alcoves and a few dining type tables beneath an internal etched glass window.Corporate GK menus are everywhere on the numbered tables,so you may get punters eating next to you even if you just wanted a beer.However food doesn't dominate and there is an upstairs dining area.Given that it's dog friendly and has Wednesday live music,some community spirit exists.
There are 6 handpumps with just GK IPA as part of the ties,one pump unused,leaving the four guests on my visit as Trumans Zephyr and Lazarus,Twickenham Strange Brew and a decent Wimbledon Copper Leaf (unreasonable £2.45 the half,but I missed the 10% CAMRA discount).
I would pop in again,there aren't too many pubs in this neck of the woods and this is fine for a few jars.

The bar of the Zetland Arms is L shaped with high tables along one exterior wall and more conventional tables and chairs down the other. Around to the right of the bar is a flight of stairs that lead up to a dining area that was roped off during my recent 16:00 Thursday afternoon visit. To the left of the bar is a good sized seating area that was empty leaving myself, a Spanish couple and an old sleeping gentleman as the only customers. There was some background music playing and the television was off, although I did spot a live sport advertisement in the toilet.

The bar supports standard and premium draught products and I counted four hand pumps on the bar. These were drawing Taylor Walker’s 1730, Fuller’s London Pride, St Austell’s Tribute and Sharp’s Doom Bar. This is a Taylor Walker pub so their traditional pub grub menu is used where a main of cod and chips is priced at £12.30.

I found the service to be friendly and would have no problem returning in the future if passing.
