Across from Colliers Wood tube station. Large split level interior and a garden at the rear. 6 real ales and food served.

Visited again recently and Thwaite's Wainwright now cost £3.95 a pint. Update, visited again, 2017. Looks good to me, large garden area. Okay, so a pint of Wandsworth Common is £4.40, but other, stronger ales were the as same price. I like it.

The indigo painted frontage and minimalist signage are clear indications of a food led pub. But they did have four ales on – the Courage Best won’t win any prizes from me, but the others were Everard’s Flourish, Kissingate Smelter’s Stout and By The Horns Diamond Geezer. Pints of the Flourish and Diamond Geezer were £8, so obviously around £4 a pint. The food is similarly expensive with the fish and chips at £11.50 and the burger and chips at £12.50. My chum and I had the burger and chips and although it was OK, I still think it was overpriced at £12.50.

As you would expect, a section of the pub is furnished with tables laid for diners. There are some tall tables and chairs at the front, but the raised area at the back still has standard tables and chairs and has even retained the rugby themed prints on the wall. There are now no longer any signs for braais, so I guess that the barbies have been given the heave-ho. The large garden at the back has been smartened up and is in my view the pub’s best feature. It’s a shame that it’s towered by an electricity pylon though. This is a fair enough pub as long as the high prices don’t scare you off.
