The ales on here had something of a Cornish emphasis, with Sharp’s Doom Bar, and St Austell Tribute and Proper Job available. Old Rosie cider was also available on handpump. I didn’t see any sign of food or menus when I was in here on Wednesday evening.

Live music is advertised - The Varukers had their own poster, possibly because they are appearing soon. The pub still consists of two rooms, joined by a doorway. The room on the right is signed as the Public Bar, and contains the pool table. It also has a table with books, presumably for customers to read. The highlight of the book collection (according to a railway enthusiast whom I was with) was a book of carriage, or perhaps engine numbers. The trainspotter’s bible I suppose. Other points of interest are the thick deep red velvet curtains, and the old bar gantry still retaining the Charrington’s signage. The handpumps are all in the Saloon Bar, but there is a small chalkboard in the Public Bar listing the available beers.

This looks like a backstreet locals’ bar. But it doesn’t open weekday lunchtimes so must be relying on the evening crowd. This is another pub under threat, so I’m glad to have visited it while I could.

This place is a gem, an oasis of peace and quiet in SW9. Great ales (the place has a Cask Marque certificate) including St.Austell Tribute plus at least one other guest ale (Deuchars and Bays have been two recent guests). Stowford Press cider and scrumpy are always available, and the Guiness is lovely.

Other drinks - well, there's a great selection of whiskies and some good rums too. Plus a lot of other drinks you'd expect (and a few you wouldn't!)

Decent music on the in-house sound system (they take requests), lots of games available to play (Pool, Table Football, Chess, Draughts, Backgammon, Risk, Cards...) and a mixture of regulars from older locals to younger music fans (this place is also a well-known music venue on some evenings) make this a one-in-a million. But then, it's my local, so i'm probably biased :o)

There's a pool table in the public bar and table football in the relaxed bar that has the reggae music and slouching crowd, but it took an age to be served even though there was only one other customer. The plasma screen was off even though a big match was on and the local crowd were less accommodating than suspicious.

There's a standard draught selection along with, surprisingly, Stowford Press and old Rosie.

I didn't like it in here and I'll not be returning.
