a proper pub that seemed very unspoiled to me. It certainly warmed and cheered me up after seeing my old favourite Rose & Crown up the road closed and in the process of refurbishment/ probable ruination. A lovely two roomed corner community pub with five ales on. Much needed in a trendy gentrified area.

The fine pub exterior and opulent saloon bar of the Lord Clyde has been well documented by previous reviewers and it was good to find it being well utilised by a cross section of London society last week.
Being a fine evening there was as many out as in and the exterior benches were being mainly utilised by the city’s professional millennials whilst the old ale drinking gits, including us, were propping up the bar and then two darts teams were going at it in an official match in the back room.
For our visit the 5 handpumps were also Doom Bar, Adnams Southwold Bitter, Youngs Bitter and the Hogs Back TEA and then the fifth had Butcombe El Toro, their brew for the world cup. We ducked this one as Butcombe had inexplicitly decided to use the Argentinian no10 shirt for the pump clip (probably by some young marketing exec type who wasn’t around for the 1986 quarter final) , and went for the TEA which was OK , but not brilliant.
I agree with others that the beer falls short of doing this pub justice, bust still remains a must visit when in the area for the décor alone.

Long overdue revisit and thankfully almost no change from my review of almost 10 years ago. Very busy, with a mix of locals and in-the-know office workers and tourists. Five ales on; Sharps Doom Bar, Youngs Bitter, Hogs Back TEA, Robinsons Overhang and Adnams Bitter. The quality of the two I had were fairly good, if not quite top-notch. But make no mistake, this is a must-visit pub for those who appreciate the traditional – it’s been in the same family for over 50 years, which helps explain things. 8.5

June 2008
A beautiful old back street local (CAMRA National Inventory listed), with a preserved green tiled Trumans exterior and a friendly and convivial welcome within. Four mainstream handpulls on the go - Youngs Ordinary, Sheps Spitfire, Fullers London Priide, Greene King IPA and Adnams which are usually pretty good. A shame there isn't a slightly more eclectic selection, this is the right kind of area (and pub) in which to shift it. It’s tastefully kitted out inside - dark wood panelling, brass fittings, heavy red door curtains (invaluable in the winter – why don’t more pubs have these?), open fire, heavy carpet, leather banquettes with old photographs of the pub and neighbourhood on the walls. It has also got some interesting heritage factors (glass work on the doors, Truman tiling, hatch through to the bar in the back room). I get the impression that this used to be a multi-room pub that has been opened out a little, what with the ‘lounge’ and ‘public’ etched glasswork. Incongruously there are also 80’s retro toilets – can we list them too? Misses out by the lack of originality on the beer front, but otherwise fabulous and unmissable in the winter, especially. Rated 8.5
