Malden man left this review about The Bollo

Probably once a decent back street local, this place has seemingly decided to go upmarket, certainly on the food front. Options included roast lamb chump, something called champ, wilted spinach and rosemary jus for a mere £17.50 or roast atlantic cod fillet, pink fir potatoes, spinach, chorizo and aoli, £16.. The lack of pie chips, peas and gravy was a bit of an issue.
As a pub however it wasn't that bad, if a bit poncy, an L-shaped room with a polished boarded floor, candles on the tables, a nice fireplace and a domed rooflight. Some exposed brickwork behind the bar, friendly service and the presence of a shelf of games softened the gastro feel a bit.
Four real ales on, Ascot Winter Reserve, Sharp's Cornish Coaster, GK IPA and Suffolk Brewery Porter.
I'm happy for pubs like this to go a bit foody providing it is not to the detriment of the drinker if that is what they need to keep going. They actually manage this well here, I liked it, felt comfortable but probably will not eat here unless they get some pies and gravy in.

This is a late Victorian pub originally named the Railway Tavern. There's some lovely original green tiling on the exterior, but little of heritage inside as it's been largely opened up and stripped out over the years. Even though this is still a Greene King pub, the ale choice has taken a massive upturn since the previous reviewers' visits, with GK IPA, Ascot Winter Reserve, Cornish Coaster, and Southwark Porter on, plus a couple more handpumps unclipped.

Food is still clearly a major player, although I didn't sense that those just wanting a drink were out of place here, so in just about every respect it's improved since Steve C's visit back in 2008. I didn't look at the menu, although I believe that one of my companions did, for amusement value obviously as he certainly wasn't planning to eat here as I gather there were no pies, chips, mushy peas and gravy on the menu!

I quite enjoyed my visit here. My two companions and I sat at a standard table with ordinary chairs, and enjoyed a decent pint of real ale. That works for me.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bollo

Went at a quiet time in mid/late afternoon so there were no no diners about and thus didn't feel out of place. The tables make it look like a restaurant, but the bar layout does at least make you realise that it still operates as a pub as well. Two Greene King ales on - IPA and LBW - and the outside benches were a pleasant place to spend a little time sitting in the sun.
