This place has had a refurbishment recently, and I dropped in to see what they had done to it. The answer is little of substance, which is a good thing. If it's not broken don't try to fix it. The pool table and pinball have gone, and there are now quite a few tall tables/tall stools around the place, but enough normal tables and chairs to keep me happy.

There are six handpumps in the public bar, but when I visited Monday lunchtime there were only two ales on - Three Sods Session IPA and Black Sheep Rye Mild. The other four were clipped, with "coming soon" (or something similar) labels on them. The four coming soon were Doom Bar, Wandle, and the By the Horns pair of Diamond Geezer and Lambeth Walk. The landlord told me that they normally have three ales available, with either Doom Bar or Wandle on with a couple of guests, as this is currently the most that can be sustained by current demand. Prices are expensive, with real ale at £4.70 or so a pint, but you get a £1 off a pint on Mondays. The only food available was pork pies, sausage rolls or Scotch eggs at £2.50 a pop.

This remains a delightful little backstreet pub. I'll certainly be back sometime.

Went here yesterday seeking Harveys and a dartboard, unfortunately neither remain.
I very much liked the décor and feel of the place, but just Doombar and Wimbledon Brewery Common Pale, both doubled up, on handpump. Friendly publicans, the guv expected to be busy later for the England rugby.
Another miserable mcfc failure was the early showing on the flatscreen.

The three bar format remains intact, Public, Saloon and the Meal Room. The bar serves all areas from the centre, I decided upon the meal room which was occupied by other drinkers and felt comfortable. I peeked into the other areas but these seemed a bit basic and Spartan, wooden floored and quiet. The Meal Room was carpeted, regular banquette and small stool seating, wood panelling and beamed ceiling. Some exposed brickwork. Straight into a conversation with a friendly Irish chap, old days and pub stuff, very good, I liked it here very much, TV showing tennis muted, music at a low volume. A few framed hunting prints on the walls, pool table and a dartboard in the public bar. London Drinker magazine available, tends to be a good sign.
Good sign it was too, a decent range, Doom Bar, Harveys Sussex Bitter, Bank's Bitter on shared across six handpumps.
A lively pub with a good atmosphere and a decent ale choice, well worthy of a visit if near Earlsfield Station.
