Reopened following a limited makeover (lick of paint, couple of new sofas etc) but still recognisable as the pub it's always been. New landlord friendly and attentive, happily turned down the overly loud "background" music. Uninspiring beer range - Pride, OSH & Youngs Special (OSH was OK, but Pride not in absolute best condition) served in randomly branded glasses. I was informed that a fourth guest ale would be added "if there was demand". Still very much has the feel of a locals pub. OK if in the area, but not worth a special visit.

Basic pub with wood panelled interior. Few customers on my Sunday night visit. The church organ music being played gave a depressing feel to the pub. Not comfortable for me. Good selection of beers with Pride,Downton -quadhop and new forest and my half of Trumans -emperor was good but served in a Carling glass.

Update - July 2012. Enjoyed a good pint of Twickenham Naked Ladies in here yesterday - £ 3.50p - which is cheaper than it is in Youngs pubs. Pub unchanged from my previous review. The longstanding landlord, Mike, is still going strong and still wearing those awful snazzy shirts. There's a real community feel about this pub, although I have to report that some of the customers engaged in anti - Murray heckling yesterday during the Wimbledon tennis final were a bit OTT and probably the worse for wear.

It's not a must visit pub by any stretch of the imagination, but I'll no doubt call in again one day.

Original review from March 2009 - Traditional wood-pannelled pub just off the busy South Circular. It's situated halfway between Richmond and Putney which, according to the pub's very informative own website, is how it got its name.

Externally, it's an attractive looking building, with what is probably a mock-Tudor exterior with several old gas lamps hanging down.There's leaded windows at the front, with that unusual semi-circle shape on top that you more readily associate with churches.

Internally, it's a pleasant wood-pannelled pub with a bit of a feel of a gentleman's club, despite the presence of several fruit machines. Several screens and pillars help divide the floor space and create a cosier feel than if it were completely open.

There's a more upmarket, select feel to the place than in several other pubs round here that I shall refrain from mentioning by name.

Being away from the river, it doesn't seem to get much passing trade and trade seems to be predominantly local.

There's the seemingly obligatory pub quiz on Tuesday. Jazz and Blues nights are Saturday and sometimes Thursday.

There's a dartboard, although the seating arrangements would appear to suggest that it is hardly , if ever, used.

There's a bank of 4 handpumps. On my recent Saturday morning visit, Brakspears, Black Sheep and London Pride were on. I've seen a Twickenham beer in here previously. Copies of London Drinker on a windowledge indicate that the pub is CAMRA friendly.

I quite like this pub. It's not a must visit pub, but worth the short bus ride down the South Circular to seek out.
