Tris C left this review about The Gallery

Of interest here, is that the Perseverance (as it was originally) was built in 1841 by Thomas Cubitt, who built much of London, including Pimlico and Osbourne House.
The current name dates from 1992 and is very much something of a more down to earth locals’ pub. It’s part carpeted inside, with some raised areas. Illumination comes from Victorian-style sconce lights with overly bright filament bulbs, which showed off the paintwork, the colour of avocado flesh, to great extent, likewise the white ceiling; there was though a rather peculiar disinfectant smell; the ugly games machine was hardly a bonus. Furniture is very mixed, giving the impression it was sourced at different times, from different places. Customers included the odd lost tourist, but mainly older, more local customers, one having a tedious phone call on speakerphone, his partner listening to noisy YouTube videos, both occasionally being joined by one of the young barmaids, who would have done this pub a great favour if they’d politely asked them to desist; where’s Humphrey when you need him?
Nice old-school staff were hemmed in by three unused pumps and one for Pride, the only hope here of real ale worth drinking was Landlord, but the clip was reversed, me seeking some solace with a half of Kronenbourg, at a very steep £2.75.
This is perhaps a bit too bright and a bit too local for me, though more restrained than the area’s typical pubs, with their noisy crowds. The lack of real ale and equally, noisy screen addicted customers, ensure that I won’t be back.

A street corner pub but with huge picture windows,the interior is basically one large carpeted room,but with a raised section to the left and a rear room.There is a good looking wooden staircase to a first floor restaurant,while a banquette sits underneath the risers.
There was a strong smell of food wafting about,and some people were eating in the bar room.Light muzak was playing,while for most punters drinking was the order of the day.There are 5 handpumps with a very mainstream national brands selection on my trip of GK London Glory and Rockin' Rudolph,Marston's Pedigree ,Jennings Cumberland and Otter Ale (dull brew ,expensive at £2.50 half)
All a bit predictable,not much here to warrant a revisit.

Traditional sort of boozer but a bit old fashioned with curtains on the windows and tatty ornaments strewn on ledges.Younger crowd rather than locals.Dull beers featured.No craft and only Pedigree and Eagle bitter on cask.Outside seating to front.
