The ale selection is much the same as that encountered by other reviewers, with London Pride (obviously), HSB, Gales Seafarers and Spring Sprinter available. I didn’t eat here, but the food seemed to be reasonably priced – sandwiches were £4.95 a pop, including salad and chips. There was a specials board with more reasonably priced grub, such as steak & kidney pie, chips and peas for £6.75.
The layout of the pub is largely unchanged from previous reviews, and looks to be the product of a relatively recent refurbishment. The two window bays still have leather sofas in them, otherwise furnishings are mainly normal tables and chairs but with a couple of tall tables/stools on the left. There’s a clean good quality carpet on the floor giving it a more warm and homely feel, and maroon painted walls up to the dado rail level also add to the warmth is some strange way.
When I was in there on a Wednesday afternoon there were only a few punters in, all looking like retired blokes – like me. This struck me as a friendly pub, and as I quite like Fuller’s/Gale’s beers this one suits me just fine. If I get the chance I’ll return.

A pretty standard drinkers pub on the main Ewell Rd. This was unusually once for South West London a Gale's tied house prior to the takeover by Fullers, and this is reflected still in the beer choice. Three of four pumps were on, Gales HSB and Seafarers plus Pride.
The main front room is carpeted, with the bar ahead as you enter. Sofas in the two front bay windows, and high tables with similar stools along one side, with the middle area and far side having traditional proper chairs and tables. The room has black painted beams and posts in an attempt to provide a faux rustic look reinforced by old jugs and a few copper artifacts on a shelf, but a bit half hearted really. There are several old photos of the immediate area, some concentrating on the suburban development in the 1930's which were of interest to me.
A TV in the main room was showing 20-20 cricket, muted with low level music playing. A small bookcase in the same corner of the room had a number of old novels, sports books etc, possibly donated.
The front room/bar area now being one space shows signs of a possible previous layout as there are two opposite and identical fireplaces.
To the rear and on the left of the bar as you enter the pub extends back to a type of conservatory area with a pitched polycarbonate roof, clearly a later addition. Bright and airy, there is another TV here, women's football on this, interestingly gathering a crowd of watching blokes; this area has mainly standard seating.
Not sure about the food offered as I visited post work, but a chalkboard had a varied burger menu.
My pint of Seafarers was in good shape, and the pub itself feels welcoming and comfortable.
There are a couple of bench tables at the front facing the main road which may suit the smokers but are not really where you would sit out of choice. There may be an outdoor area at the back, but I didn't explore beyond the main area.
London Drinker available here..always a good sign..plus more unusually given the location a range of tourist leaflets for other parts of London.

Quite nice local. Was a Gales pub for a time before their takeover by Fullers, and still sells some of their beer (brewed in Chiswick now though).
