As Tris describes, which is no suprise only being a week previous, although there's been an effort to maintain the interior to an extent, I still found it a little souless in here and given the beer choice, or lack of it ,I too opted for a half Guinness. This place is a no for me.

Dating from the mid-19th century, though probably rebuilt in the ‘30s, this was originally the Bricklayers Arms, currently named after Admiral Nelson’s Number Two (no sniggering).
Nicely maintained and with a 100-person capacity function room to the right, Hardy’s goes back a fair way, with a step up to the mid-section of the pub, which has a new boarded floor and overall pea green colour scheme with a white Anaglypta ceiling; there’s some dark wood to the bar but I couldn’t date it. Décor amounts to shelved books, prints from yesteryear and Irish beverage makers’ mirrors, with lighting provided by downlighters and several green glass ‘n’ brass desk lamps. There was a games machine and sport on the TV (no-one watching) with music from the jukebox eschewed in favour of Capital Gold. Furniture comprised traditional dark wood items, with turquoise cloth upholstered banquettes. There were four other elderly customers and two mobility scooters; I’m not sure if clients are typically 50% disabled or if this is just kismet at Hardy's.
Aside from a palisade of illuminated chrome fizz and Guinness founts, there was the choice of GK IPA, one unused, then Ruddle’s (with a handwritten clip) and not wanting to risk it, went for a half of the black stuff at a cheap £2.20, served by a friendly old-school landlady and good, but given that this is an Irish pub (you’d never know it), boasting ‘The best Guinness in south London’, this was no surprise.
This place is ok, with a cask choice – albeit a poor one – but for the under-70s, the Crown beckons when in this neck of the woods; decent cask options would get the score up.

The right hand side of Hardy’s is a separate café called the Green Pea so the actual pub in the left hand side of the building is quite long and thin. By the entrance is some seating along with a dartboard and a single step leads to the rear of the pub where seating is found along the left wall and the bar along the right. This is an Irish pub so it was not surprising to see the usual paraphernalia including road signs with the mileage to certain Irish towns. Sky Sports is shown and I counted two plasma screens that were airing Gold FM. On the back wall is a small stage area that I imagine gets used at the weekends for live music.

Out the back is a paved seating area that was being used by a couple of smokers.

The bar is stocked with standard draught and the two banks of three hand pumps were drawing Greene King IPA and Sharp’s Doom Bar. I didn’t see any food advertised, but I could smell the food from the adjacent café so I would be surprised if it wasn’t available in the pub.

I found the service to be very friendly, but I could feel my life force draining away by the second so was happy to leave. This is a pub best left to the locals.
