Now, in essence, an Indian restaurant in a former pub which retains a functioning bar; the horseshoe shape remains, but the former rooms have been knocked through into one space with a light grey paint scheme predominating. Sadly, the only feature of note was what looked to be an original fireplace with tiling opposite the bar, although the stained glass 'Saloon Bar' header also remains from a previous review. A single real ale in the token Sharp's Doom Bar which was pleasantly serviceable at £3.75 for the pleasure. A couple of screens showed a PL game to nobody and I was one of three punters in on a Sunday arvo until a DJ began noisily disassembling and removing gear from a booth. Another Heritage pub pretty much lost.

A very run-down business in a shabby pub whose architectural value appears largely unrecognised. Originally The Half Moon, the building is a Victorian mock-Tudor house whose interior is well described by Rex, below. The internal décor could be quite magnificent, but it has been left to rot by its current owners in an act of cultural negligence. Now it's inhabited by cliquey, hostile Kyleites and has no real ale. I'll pass this one in future.

There were a couple of ales on – London Pride and Timothy Taylor Landlord, the latter at £1.75 a half, implying something like £3.50 a pint. They usually do food, but the kitchen was closed for some work to be undertaken during my Monday lunchtime visit. This pub is on the CAMRA inventory of heritage pubs, because of its largely unspoiled interior. The main bar is on the right, the entrance signed as the Saloon Bar in ironwork above the doorway. There’s normal seating in here, plus a piano, and the Elvis photograph is still in place. Passing in front of the bar counter, through a doorway on the left is another drinking space – this one contains the handpumps so it really is important that visitors in search of a real ale move swiftly into this room. This room is furnished with banquettes and normal tables and chairs, has a TV on the wall (switched off during my Monday lunchtime visit), and contains a highlight of an alcove window, with a plant depicted in leaded lights. There are some brass musical instruments perched on the bar gantry, making a less than usually seen decorative feature. Beyond this room there is a small snug bar with just a couple of solid wood tables plus some banquette seating.
This is a virtually untouched pub, retaining the feel of a traditional inter-war pub, although the building is much older. It was virtually empty during my visit so it’s impossible to judge what sort of pub “atmosphere” it normally has. But I liked it as a pub with a traditional feel to it, and would be delighted to be able to pay a return visit.
