Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Oaka at The Mansion House

Thoroughly modernised by the Oakham Brewery, this is now a shiny bar / restaurant (and thus at the opposite end of the spectrum from the Old Red Lion next door). That said, it retains seating areas in front of the counter and on the opposite side of the entrance in addition to the dining areas further back. Also has some wooden benches out front. Two doubled-up banks of five handpumps, offering JHB, Citra, Inferno, Bishop's Farewell and the seasonal Hangar 17 (£3.50).

ORIGINAL REVIEW October 2013.
After many years of closure,Oakham have created a modern bar and popular Thai restaurant,there is no trace of the rough pub of years ago.Outside there are a lot of wooden benches while the modest interior splits into bar to the right,restaurant to the left.I didn't eat so can't comment on that,but plenty were and it seemed busy throughout my Friday evening visit.The furnishings are modern with a high bench seat running along the right hand wall below a sizeable flat screen turned off.Wooden stools , leather pouffes and tea lights completed the scene.On the restaurant side the flat screen was showing events in the kitchen,most unusual.
Throughout the evening the bar was popular with a young professional type crown,but never rammed.Many were sampling the excellent ale.Service was efficient and friendly.Although there are 10 ale handpumps,many were doubled up and the choice confronting us was Oakham JHB,Inferno,Citra (£3.80),Scarlet McCaw (£3.85) and Black Hole Porter.Sadly the Bishops Farewell had just gone off and the Green Devil IPA was still settling .However all pints sunk were in perfect shape if a bit pricey.You can order by the third,schooner or pint.There are suggestions on a chalk board for beer matching with certain Thai dishes.
Two handpumps were dedicated to real cider,and there was a large keg offering as well.There is a lot of Oaka branding around,and the motif Oaka @ The Mansion House is much in evidence,name change on the way ?
I can see how pub traditionalist may feel uncomfortable here but I really enjoy Oakham's great brews and the upbeat vibe together with good service help to make this a bar that I will frequent many times in future,despite the price tag.

UPDATE
There has been some minor tweaking of the interior and the strict left/right demarcation of the dining tables and drinking areas has been toned down with less tables set for dining and all tables along the frontage available for drinking.Gone are a few high tables by the door giving a more unified feel to this popular bar.Ale quality from the Oakham range was top drawer,and we also sampled some thai snacks while boozing which were very good.Pricey,trendy and hip but got busier as the Friday evening wore on,generally a good sign.

The Oaka at the Mansion house has had a complete makeover since i last tried to do Mansion House a few years back,the pub is a short walk from Kennington tube.
Once inside there is an oblong shaped room to the front with the bar facing,the seating was normal tables and chairs in the middle with a bench seat at either end,there was what looked like a seperate dining area to the rear left.
My problems started when i tried to order my half,i asked for a half pint of Oakham JHB,the asion bar lady started to serve me a pint when i asked for a half she said we dont do halfs only third or two thirds of a pint,so i ended up with a third of a pint,i have never in all my pub crawling drank a third of a pint.
The pub seems to be an Oakham tied house,i noted Oakham JHB /Inferno /Citra /Apple /Improbable and Bishops Farewell on the bar,my drink was very nice,but with all of the sliding doors open the drinking experience was spoiled by the noise of traffic bombing past on the very busy kennington park road.
I found my visit to this pub very dissapointing.
