This pub definitely lived up to its name and we really enjoyed our visit. Seven ales on pump, Five Points Pale, Downtown New Forest, Downlands Bramber, Pig and Porter Red Spider, Kissingate Black Cherry Mild, Magic Rock Dark Arts and Windsor & Eaton Knight of the Garter. They also had seven Key Keg and four ciders. The pub also served a good range of food, a specials menu at lunchtime and about eight different hotpot meals from 12-10, priced at £5.50/£6 each. Only that we wanted to visit other pubs in the area, I think we would have stayed most of the afternoon. Always good to see a Ship's Cat in residence too, sat in the window.

Happy to keep the general 9/10 theme going here, well described many times below, its a classic traditional pub with the bonus of excellent ale choice as well as being in top condition, on today were Mad Squirrel London Porter and Mr Squirrel,Arbour Oz Bomb,Kent Abandon Hope,Downton New Forest. Weird Beard Dark Hopfler and W&E Knights of the Garter. Craft keg is also in abundance, I succumbed to The Kernel IPA. The top pub in Carshalton by a very long stretch.

The destination pub for my crawl and it didn't disappoint. Owned by some ale-loving locals and proof that the concept can work as it was Impressively busy for a Saturday mid-afternoon. Old skool interior within (as mentioned elsewhere, it has a ‘village pub’ feel) - two bars when you enter with aged pub carpet red embossed wallpaper ceiling with modern black beams, low ceiling, varnished half-length panelling and traditional seating. A nautical theme, which begins with the pub’s sign, continues within with some framed prints of ships on the walls and a bar gantry incorporating circular portholes. There’s no TV, music or fruit machines that I could spot. Old pump clips everywhere but arranged by brewery which for a low spectrum OCDer like me was ideal! Apparently there is WiFi but my phone struggled to get it. Fantastic range of ales; Downton New Forest, W&E Knight of the Garter, Dark Star Darkness, Crouch Vale Yakima, Wimbledon Quartermaine, Andwell Resolute, Magic Rock Common grounds plus key keg. I tried three of the ales, which were all in good shape, though a slight gripe in that barmaid didn't point out which was which on delivery. Friendly staff and a convivial atmosphere though I could have done without the drunk Wagner aficionados. I can understand how this one gets so many plaudits, it's a little cracker. 9.5
