The Pineapple has an L shaped bar with a public bar seating area to the right and lounge seating to the left rear. It can be a bit of a squeeze around the narrow bar, but there was plenty of room in the lounge area during a visit just before Christmas. I counted two plasma screens that were both airing PDC World Championship Darts from Ally Pally. This was muted in favour of some festive background music. A partition door remains where two bars have been knocked into one. I imagine that this door means that either side can be hired out for functions.
Standard draught products are available from the bar that also supports four hand pumps. These were drawing Greene King’s London Glory, IPA and the seasonal Rocking Rudolph alongside Sharp’s Doom bar. An extensive bar menu can be found on a large chalk board up on the wall. The vast majority of the available dishes are priced under £8. I found the service to be polite and would return if the opportunity presented itself.

The Pineapple is a nice looking wedged shaped pub that is a very short walk from the Steam Engine.
Once inside there is an irregular shaped room to the front which is the bar,there is a more comfy lounge area to the rear left which is carpeted and had comfy bench seating.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Youngs bitter which was a decent enough drink,the other beers were GK IPA and London Pride.
The pub was comfy enough and the beer nice but i found the pub it a bit depressing probably because it was fairly quiet on my late Saturday afternoon visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Pineapple

Quite an attractive façade, but hopes sink a bit as one sees the Murphy's, Heineken and Kilkenny illuminated signs. However, despite the name O'Neills appearing on some of the glazing and signage, it doesn't really give the impression of being an Irish pub - more of a no-nonsense local. The interior retains a traditional two-bar layout, with a pool table in the public bar and the lounge extended at the back with further seating area under a much lower ceiling. Traditional furniture and decor. Sports TVs and music (perhaps a bit loud in the early evening). Wooden patio tables out on the pavement. Two sets of three handpumps, offering Pride, Greene King IPA and Youngs Ordinary (£3.40).
