A good solid rock pub playing some awesome music. We called in here Saturday night around 10pm and the place was very busy as to be expected. Service at the bar was quick and there was a choice of four ales on handpump, so I went for the Urban Huntsman which had plenty of flavour. We found the snug around the right hand side of the bar, which was a decent place to settle, whilst we watched a band lugging in some sound equipment up the stairs as the place was getting even busier.

There's a sign outside proclaiming that this pub's still open despite a recent fire gutting the top floor of the adjoining building. You obviously can't keep a good gryphon down. This is a heavy metal themed pub, with some loud music being played when we dropped in on Saturday afternoon. As you would expect, there's music memorabilia around the place, and of course live music sessions are held regularly. It's gloomily menacing in a characterful sort of way.

There were several ales on, including the SW London favourite of Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter. I didn't see any sign of food. I didn't think that this pub had quite the cosy and comfortable feel of some of the other pubs we visited, and of course it doesn't set out to be that sort of pub. This is another one that's definitely worth a punt.

The unusual wedge shape of this pub gives it a lot of character. You are faced by thre bar as you enter with its various pumps of real ale. Rock music playing, the beer is good and its all round nice pub to try.
