The Beaconsfield makes it into CAMRA’s inventory of pubs with historic interiors, this recording a rank of Regional Importance and it’s for this reason that I suspect the previous reviewers journeyed here. It’s unchanged since at least the last review, with the cardboard glazing still in place and two clips dispensing GK IPA, eschewed in favour of a well poured Guinness, at the amazingly low price of £3.70; clearly the Indian barman has been practicing. Some of the people in here were a bit rum and to be honest, I didn’t feel entirely comfortable here and not just because of the large number of TVs showing the footie.
The interior can be seen on CAMRA’s and on the pub’s own website, where the narrator in the video clip fails to pronounce the name correctly.
At short walk from here and both situated on Green Lanes, the Brownswood and Salisbury both make it into CAMRA’s inventory for having the ‘Wow!’ factor, not ‘Why?’ factor.

There is a good pub here struggling to get out ,but in it's current guise there is a huge ,lost oppoutunity.There is a hotel upstairs but I would suspect this is quite downmarket and guests may well be the people spending all day in the pub.The side door leads to an island bar in the middle which you can walk around.Not much furniture at the front,two pool tables at the rear but lots of wood panelling,some etched glass and a fine moulded ceiling but painted a gloomy shade of green.Original features still exist but a pane of glass to the front has been broken but just taped up rather than replaced.The flatscreen were all showing hurling and there were some Irish punters inside but the bar staff are Indian and were getting grief from a regular for not pouring a decent pint of Guiness which was totally unfair.My half was fine at £1.95 but the handpumps didn't look like they have been operational for a while.
It's a sad place,underused and could be so much better with some TLC.No reason to revisit in it's current state .

A splendid looking Victorian pub built in 1886. The pub has an historic interior of Regional Importance. The present layout consists of a central island bar with surrounded seating, which flows into a large backroom, housing two pool tables. Features here that interested me, was the curved lobby entrance, the elaborate plastered ceilings and etched mirrors.
Uninteresting feature was the two handpumps, one serving London Pride and one turned back.
