Was making a weekend of it for one of the recent Rugby Autumn internationals and without any intervention from me the good lady managed to book accommodation where we had to walk past the Sussex Arms to get to Twickenham Stadium. Consequently we utilised the pub pre-match, post-match and were back in for Sunday lunch the day after.
Pleasantly surprised to find all 20 pumps in operation for our Saturday visits and, although a few were doubled up, there was still 11 ales and 4 ciders available.
Alongside the Big Smoke Solaris and Underworld and the regular Harvey’s Best there was Citra and Heights of Oblivion from Oakham, Five Points XPA, Gorgeous Brewery Gunpowder IPA, Thornbridge Jaipur, Southwark Brewing Mayflower Session IPA, Exeter Brewery Falls Over and Ascot Brewing Anastasia Stout.
I tried the two Oakham brews and the Anastasia stout and they were all kept well, but the Oakham Citra was in particularly excellent form.
A couple of the other ales had gone by the Sunday lunchtime, but not the Citra which continued to be excellent, as was our Sunday lunches. And then on top of this the backing music comes from a turntable at the end of the bar by the coffee machine and the pubs collection of vinyl. But for this lunchtime the manager had brought in Pink Floyd Dark side of the Moon and Led Zep IV from his own collection. Happy days..

Last night was my first visit to the Sussex Arms since pubs have been allowed to open this year.

There are still a couple of tables at the front where you can drink, whilst most people walk through the L-shaped pub itself to the outdoor area at the rear.

The patio and garden are quite large here. Whilst we couldn't get a booking last week, there was plenty of space on a Monday night for walk-ins. The patio area is undercover and next to the kitchen. It is undercover with tables nearest the pub benefitting from heaters. Beyond is a garden area with plenty of tables, albeit much more exposed.

The ale and cider range was slightly more limited than in normal times, but it was still decent. Regular beers are Big Smoke Solaris & Underworld, alongside Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter. Guests yesterday were Portobello Stiff Lip IPA, Ascot Gold Cup, Northern Monk Eternal, Kent Prohibition, Five Points XPA, Burning Sky Plateau & Oakham Citra. The 4 ciders were Lilley's Strawberry Cider, Seacider White Peach, Farmer Jim's Medium Farmhouse Scrumpy & Pulp Rhubarb Cider.

Use of the Big Smoke app is encouraged, although it was playing up a little yesterday and staff were happy to take orders at the table. Unfortunately, there still doesn't seem to be a way to use the loyalty cards that the chain used to have, where every 10th pint was free.

Still one of the most reliable pubs in London.

Splendid beer exhibition pub run by the Big Smoke brewery. An impressive bank of 20 handpumps serves a wide selection of ales and ciders including a few of their own and numerous changing guests from the region and further afield, plus various craft keg taps also. Condition of those sampled was excellent. The pub itself is a well-worn 1930s-ish house with lots of original features, nicely unmodernised and pleasingly tatty round the edges. There is a covered patio and garden at the rear. Recommended.
