Watched an old Richard Burton Film which had key scenes filmed here - The Villian - and in 1971, this was a spectacular looking pub. Thought I would check it out.

It has changed, but you can see echos of its former glory in the high ceilinged room, with central dome.

A green king pub - the pint of Sambournes Wandle exceeded all expectations.

Lots of competition in the area but a good pub. Visit blogged at http://bit.ly/2wM3nj2

A large bright and airy pub this one with enormously high ceilings as described below, and basically two large rooms either side of the central serving area.
This is one that really needs a good crowd in to give it an atmosphere and there was something resembling that on the right hand side as there were a few Christmas dinner parties in. But I took my pint into the left hand section, primarily to watch the footy on the flat screen, and this area was very quiet.
Of the five pumps on the front of the bar three were in operation with two beers from the Woolwich based Hop Stuff brewery (Single Stout and Fusilier), and one with the Dorset brewery Jurassic.
Normally I would avoid drinking anything with a canon on the beer pump but in the absence of a great deal of other choice I went for the Hop Stuff single stout and it was actually quite good.
Not sure it’s the sort of place I would choose to linger long in, but to do it justice I probably should come back of an evening when there is a crowd in.

Quite busy this one, on our Saturday afternoon visit. The pub had a respectable atmosphere and seems to have attracted the hipster crowd, so maybe this is the new 'in place'. The far end of the bar has a stunning display of etched glass mirrors, and the large Victorian skylight in the far room is definitely worth seeing. There were five handpumps on the bar, with three in use. We went for the Sambrookes Wandle, which I haven't tried for a while.
