Unfortunately closed with the windows whitewashed over on my early April visit, there was a notice in the window stating there is an application for minor change of use, my request to mark the pub as closed was not actioned for some reason, but who knows , it may well be back open by now.

A lovely looking clearly old building in a prominent site next to Gipsy Hill station. Externally it looks in need of a bit of care, the pub sign is especially worn, inside was warm and tidy however. Central bar with the room wrapping around, the fire was lit and the football was on TV. I didn't spot the separate room to the rear as my stay was particularly brief, the handpumps have been removed and there is obviously now no real stuff to drink. So I took a quick look around and left without buying a beer. No rating consequently.

The Gipsy Hill Tavern is a large imposing pub that is close to Gipsy Hill train station.
Once inside there is an inverted U shaped room with the bar facing inwards,the floor is tiled,the seating normal tables and chairs and a few tall ones and a leather settee with puff stools,there was a real fire on the go the left,there is a small raised area to the front right.
There was a TV to the rear left showing the Everton v Southampton game.
There were no real ales on the bar,so i had a drink of Heineken Lager which went down well.
This is a decent pub just a shame that it now lacks any real ales.
