Only one of the Wimbledon 8 with a cask marque sign. Not sure why - off the five pumps, three were turned around leaving the uninspiring doom bar and speckled hen

The plethora of faux chalkboards proclaim this to be a Punch Taverns pub; confirmed by the menu which has it as one of their Taylor Walker branded outlets. There are five handpumps on the bar counter, dispensing Doom Bar; London Pride; Young’s London Gold; and Rickwar Brewery Rite Flanker as the guest ale, with the fifth pump advertising an Adnam’s beer coming soon. The Rite Flanker was a decent enough pint, at £3.28 a pint. The menu contains the usual sort of Punch Taverns offerings – the pub grub staple of steak and ale pub was £8.85.
The pub itself is surprisingly large. As you enter the pub you are in a fairly large bar area leading up to the bar counter, mainly furnished with sofas and low tables and some tall tables/stools. There was a small table in the middle of this room with miscellaneous leaflets and the like on it (e.g. for the Wimbledon Theatre), but no London Drinkers. I quite liked the brass (or brass effect probably) framed candle lamps suspended above the bar counter, and there was a TV on showing the football scores. The room opens up to the right of the bar counter into another reasonably large room on two levels containing normal tables and chairs, and which appeared to be the area favoured by diners. There’s also a fair sized seating area at the front of the pub, occupied mainly by someone selling Christmas trees during my visit.
I’m not usually a great fan of Punch Taverns pubs, but nevertheless I quite liked this one. Having an interesting guest ale on is a big plus of course, and I guess having some Christmas decorations up will always cheer up a pub a bit. This is now the only pub along the Ridgway following the demise of the King of Denmark, and I’m pretty sure that I will pay a return visit.
