More of a proper pub than the The Crooked Billet just down the way, although food is a part of its makeup, there is a wider range of beer available and simply just feels more traditional pubby.A central bar servery catered for several distinct areas throughout the pub,eight pump handles in total with a choice on my visit of Young's Special, Bitter, and Hummingbird, along with Wells Bombardier, Courage Directors , Twickenham Spring Ale and Adnams Ghost Ship. Maybe not the most exciting choice of beer, but at least some choice.

really nothing to choose between this and the crooked billet.

Even the prices are the same.

Youngs Special comes without a head.

We visited this decent sized Young's pub in search of a Sunday roast after spending some time walking round nearby Wimbledon Common. The pub's main room is dominated by the large servery, leaving a horseshoe shaped area which is filled with a mixture of seating, including in a couple of alcoves towards the back of the room. There is a smaller room to the front which was pretty much full up with diners when we visited and even busier was the fine outdoor patio area to the front of the pub, which was unsurprising given the good weather.
The place seemed to be mostly full of people who, like us, had been out walking and as such, there were a fair number of dogs in attendance as well. A TV screen to the rear of the main room was showing muted Grand Prix racing, but otherwise the place retained a charming traditional and almost rural feel to it. The menu was pretty good with a decent range of dishes, albeit at expensive prices, but I have to say that my roast was a bit of a letdown given how much was charged.
Despite being a Young's pub, there was a varied ale selection of Young's Ordinary and Special, Sambrooks Wandle and Junction (although the latter went off), Courage Directors, Wells Bombardier and Hogs Back TEA. My pint of Wandle was in great shape (possibly the best pint of this I've had) and the landlord clearly enjoys good beer as there was a real ale tuition evening advertised for the first Wednesday of each month.
I think this is a very nice and welcoming pub and it seems to complement the nearby Crooked Billet quite well, despite the fact that they are both Young's pubs in virtually the same location. I'd mark this one down for a return visit.
