Rex Rattus left this review about The Curtain's Up

Young's Bitter, Sambrook's Junction and Pumphouse Pale, and Twickenham Grandstand (£2.30 a half) were available. Main course prices were par for the area at around £13 or £14.

There's a central island servery here, surrounded by drinking areas. Sofas abound, as do tall chunky tables/tall stools, and there are recycled church chairs and dining room tables. There are knick knacks all over the place, and for some reason there's an enormous inflatable rugby ball sitting above the central stillion. There's a vase of lilies by one of the windows, some old black and white photographs on the wall, and board games and the like are available. One of the games consisted of wooden blocks that I guess you have to assemble in some way - probably has a fancy foreign name. It's that sort of place.

This place is larger than it at first appears, with a large room revealed at the back after you've circumnavigated the servery. This is clearly another pub for the young and affluent with little or no olde worlde pub character left.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Curtain's Up

This place was transformed following the Geronimo Inns takeover, but little else seems to have changed since that company was later bought out by Youngs. In terms of furniture and decor it is very much a gastro-pub, but the clientele usually seems to be more at the younger (if not quite student) end of the market. Also home to the 60-seat Barons Court Theatre, unusually housed in the basement. You can usually get a nice pint of Wandle plus a Sharp's beer (varying between Doom Bar and something more interesting) and something like Broadside (£3.70). Worth seeking out if in the area, particularly at a less-busy time of day.
