Landmark hotel-style pub on a busy junction just over the road from Tulse Hill station. You enter through a small front patio seating area to a rather swanky looking front room with dark wood flooring and similarly dark walls, which combined to create a bit of a gloomy feeling on a very hot summer’s day, but I can imagine it might feel quite welcoming in colder months. Plenty of basic and comfortable seating has been mixed in throughout the room, offering a good choice of places at which to settle down. The servery is on the rear wall and has a nice dark wood counter and a fairly standard, characterless bar back. Beyond the bar, there is a large space full of formally set tables, which didn’t seem very welcoming to the casual drinker. This area is marginally brighter than the front room, thanks mainly to walls painted in lighter shades and some rear doors that can be opened out to the garden. I noticed some smart frosted panes and original woodwork, but overall, I found the place awkward and difficult to warm to, so I retreated to the nice, green-fringed patio garden which has bench booths around the perimeter and lots of typical garden furniture through the centre, with a pop music soundtrack playing which wasn’t audible within the pub.
There are five handpulls on the bar and the options on this visit were By The Horns Tropika, Greene King IPA and Truman’s Swift. A real cider made up the numbers, with the final pull left unclipped. The Tropika was a hefty £4.70 a pint and really rather poor – probably a victim of the extreme weather and perhaps not reflective of the usual standard of beer quality.
This is quite a nicely presented pub with a pleasant garden and comfortable seating areas. I found it a bit tricky to settle down in this pub and was glad it was still warm enough to enjoy the garden on my late-evening visit. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on the ale quality and might consider a revisit when I’m next passing.

The Tulse Hill Hotel is a large pub that is situated by a very busy road junction.
Once inside this seemed to be quite a smart pub which has been opened out,the front area where the bar is is oblong shaped with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,there is a mix of seating type with some tall tables and chairs and normal tables and chairs,there is another opened out room to the rear left which looked more like a dining room.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Hackney Best Bitter which went down well,the other beers noted were Dark Star dark Side,Hop Studio Renegade IPA, GK IPA and Ship Full Sail which i think may be a GK beer.
There was decent background music playing.
I thought this was a comfortable and pleasant pub to have a drink in,though the yummy mummy's were appearing well before 12 on a Saturday dinner.

A large prominent building situated on a busy road junction which involved multiple crossings to get there from where I commenced. Inside there is an upmarket and rather foody feel, there is a central bar with the space effectively split either side but with the rear area seemingly a dining section with the food servery on one side. Very busy on Saturday early afternoon, lots of groups eating in both parts while enjoying the 6 Nations rugby, very child friendly too, plenty in, all well behaved, colouring and drawing. There is accommodation upstairs with en-suite rooms.
High tables in front of the bar but conventional elsewhere, some etched glass but otherwise little of original interest. Abstract artwork was food and dining related such as glassware and a corkscrew and to be honest passed me by. A bit of outdoor seating to the rear was evident but unusable on a cold wet day.
Five handpumps but they weren't doing very well despite it being a Saturday, one unclipped, GK IPA off, Truman's Zephyr "coming soon" leaving something unbadged called Ship Full Sail and Bedlam Brewery Pilgrim (£4.10).
It didn't really feel like a proper pub to be fair, one of my bugbears is when you have a wander around is being asked by staff if you are "ok there?". I self serve thank you. if I need you I will ask.
