Please see the review by Tris below for a detailed description.

I approached the pub, my last of a day going around Putney, at 3:30pm, having failed to check the opening time and being surprised to find the door closed despite lights being on and a group of people visible through the windows. The licensee, as it turned out, came to the door and told me it was a staff training session and they would be open in half an hour. (Opening time is 4pm Mon-Thu.) This rocked my schedule slightly, and my initial thought was to slink off elsewhere, which I soon amended to a plan to have a pizza at Franco Manca around the corner and come back after 4. This turned out to be a winner (try it, if you're into pizza), and I returned for a half each of Sly Beast Putney Porter (brewed, in collaboration with pub staff, at the former Youngs Brewery site) and Timothy Taylor Landlord, both in excellent condition and averaging £5.20 a pint.

I believe the pub had recently reopened after refurbishment, and were having trouble with the wifi; for future reference the code is "bestpubinlondon". No argument from me.

Dating from the 1820s, the Bricklaysers features on CAMRA’s inventory of pubs of historical importance, being of Some Regional Importance.
I’m not sure if I’d been here before as I used to drink at the Duke’s Head across the road in the ‘80s, but was prepared to give myself the benefit of the doubt. The interior is best appreciated on CAMRA’s site, but it’s small and cosy, with a low ceiling and much wood panelling. The interior is roughly a reversed ‘J’-shape, with the bar in the crook, the stem stretching off to single cubicle lavs, which open directly into drinkers’ faces; a patio is to the right. There was one modest TV showing the football, with the sound off, good sounds playing on the stereo. Décor comprises much in the way of knickknacks and framed prints. There’s bar skittles, shove ha’penny and bored games; hundreds of pump clip faces adorn the ceiling. What wasn’t so attractive was the small side of the bar, crammed with boxes of loo paper marked ‘Who Gives a Crap?’, along with a large kitchen fridge; space isn’t exactly this pub’s strongpoint. Standing room only on my Thursday evening visit, customers covered a broad spectrum, as did the number of hounds, passed around amongst a large group, like babies at a mass christening; overall, there was a very good vibe on my Thursday evening visit.
Served by a very enthusiastic barman who reminded me of Rufus Hound, where the pub really comes into its own is the range of ales, with 12 pumps, 11 in operation dispensing: Fresh Hop Red IPA, Mallinsons Rakau, Five Points XPA, Five Points Best (£5.10 a pint and excellent), Burning Sky Plateau, Siren Memento, SlyBeast Putney Porter, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Timothy Taylor Knowle Spring, Timothy Taylor Dark Mild and Timothy Taylor Boltmaker (the pub is a Timothy Taylor’s Champions’ Club member). A board promised the imminent arrival of ales from the likes of Burning Sky, Arbor, Siren, Fyne Ales, Northern Monk, Mallinsons, Weird Beard and Bone Machine.
This is a cracking little boozer, with one of the best ale selections in London, certainly providing a better pub experience than the White Horse at Parson’s Green a mile to the north-east. Clearing up the ugly clutter, the abandonment of televised sport and pack of hounds, would get the score up, but it’s a must-visit pub, making for a great double with the Duke’s Head over the road.

This one has returned to being a destination pub following a period when it appeared that its glory days might be behind it. Some work has been done on the place - the area to right where they used to hold beer festivals has now had residential accommodation built on it; and the toilets have been moved to the back left of the pub allowing a small outside drinking/smoking area to be created. Otherwise it's largely unchanged with a table skittles game (free to use) still in place on the lefr hand side of the pub.

But where it scores highly is on the beer front, with 11 (eleven) real ales available on my visit. They have some sort of link-up with Sly Beast Brewery which is based at the Ram Inn at Wandsworth, with a couple of their ales on including an excellent porter and 4ft 2 (a reference to the gauge of the old steam railway at Wandsworth). There were four Timothy Taylor ales on including the regulars of Landlord and Boltmaker, but also a dark mild. There were also a couple of hoppy ales from Five Points Brewery; Stiff Upper Lip from By the Horns; Siren Brewery's Yu Lu which is tea flavoured (pretty awful in my opinion); but the star of the show was Wimbledon Brewery's XXX.K - t's not often you see a 10% ABV beer on handpump! This is a pretty mixed selection, providing something for most tastes.

The Brickies has now returned to being a destination pub.
