A proper old school boozer,with pleasing etched glass to the front and inside in a large draught excluding screen by the front door.There is a large banquette below the front window warmed by a log burner,while the bar has some signage for the Isleworth Brewery and a side window marked Bottles and Jugs.Sky Sports and free Wifi in here.Through an arch is a side section with a small banquette pertched on a raised area giving access to the loos ,this looks like a stage but not used as such these days.The furniture here is trad but sparse but does include a darts board.The window in this section has internal shutters,and with prints of Ewell Village from yesteryear the overall feel is very authentic if slightly jaded.
There are four handpumps drawing on my visit Doom Bar,Youngs Bitter,Ringwood Best Bitter and Hammerpot Pale Ale (clear but past its best) .There was a friendly welcome from the barmaid and a good atmosphere generated by the regulars.
This is probably the best pub in the Village,although the competition is hardly fierce and lots of other pubs have closed since the millenium.Compared with the days of my youth when it was possible to sup a gallon on the Village crawl,this is just one of four survivors nowadays.Hardly a destination pub but worth visiting if passing.

Since I wrote the account below four years ago I feel it's been let go a little. Still pleasant and friendly enough, but getting a bit scruffy and frayed around the edges. No longer in the GBG but some good local beer on including a nice drop from Clarence & Fredericks. It remains the best bet along this stretch.
-------------------------------------------------
Thanks to it being in the GBG, TomTom led us here for refreshment on the way back from the retail hell that is Kingston on the Saturday before Christmas. And a very pleasant half hour it was too.

A few years ago this would have been yet another unremarkable suburban boozer which we would have passed by and left to the locals. Now of course most of them have either turned into flats or been refurbished into the gastrosphere: even more so in this part of the world. So yes, nothing much has changed here in years, and - indeed paradoxically - how refreshing that is.

Anyway all clean and tidy, friendly service, friendly locals and decent smokers' arrangements. Beers appear to be Youngs/Wells oriented plus TT Landlord which was in decent shape.

It's never going to be a destination pub, but definitely worth a look if you're passing and after a proper pub. I for one would be jolly pleased if it were my local.

Effectively one space but the area with the dartboard and games machines is semi-seperated by an arched opening. A comfortable traditional pub, carpeted and with cushioned banquettes and standard chairs and small stools. Matching fireplaces on each side wall but the fires were not lit at the time although they could have done with being on a miserable day. There are various prints and pictures on the white roughcast walls including the indenture and I also spotted an old map of Surrey and a bridle. Some wood panelling and tied back curtains to the bay windows. The beer selection was identical to that described below but the Doom Bar is now £3.10 thanks to the Chancellor.
It is a pleasant pub with seemingly a good bunch of regulars who clearly all know one another but I certainly agree about the radio especially the adverts.
