This place was not as bad as I feared it might be. There were two ales on; GK Abbot Ale and London Pride, the latter at £3.20 a pint, which is reasonably priced by London standards. There was the usual array of lager fonts, including Hoegaarden and San Miguel, as well as Pimms on tap. Forgoing the temptation of the San Miguel, I went for the tried and tested London Pride, which tasted like it was supposed to. The only food menu I saw was on a chalkboard on the wall, with the daily specials including wholetail scampi, etc, at £6.50.
There’s nothing special about the interior, with some sofas, tall tables/stools, and normal tables and chairs making up the furnishings. It comprises a single bare-boarded room, but with a fair bit of outside seating at the side and rear of the building. For some reason, wall decor included some sets of skis. I have to say that I found this to be a fairly cheerless place. That may be because it was so gloomy inside – OK, it was a gloomy day yesterday – with the outside canopies and venetian blinds cutting out almost all of the natural light. On the plus side, a magazine rack on the wall gave customers something to read. When I was in there was also a party of women plus kids in. I know you have to take kids somewhere when it’s a rotten day, but I doubt that GJ’s bar would be my first choice. But everyone to their own, I suppose. I doubt whether I’ll be going back.

Has changed it's name to GJ's Bar. A smallish pub, which boasts a tropical garden, does that mean Mosquitos? Only one real ale tap, London Pride. Friendly staff.
