At first glance this former Courage pub does indeed look like a restaurant, particularly when viewed from Fortess Road. Not only were all tables laid for dining, but they were all reserved. Viewed from Lady Margaret Road however, and it does look a lot more like a drinkery and an inviting one at that. I can't add much to that below, but this type of well-preserved richly ornate interior is very much up my street. However, what is essentially a side bar has only six tables with an average of four spaces at each and two of these tables were reserved for dining, meaning that the pub isn't averse to depriving drinkers of their tables if demanded by diners. This rather begs the question: would the pub reserve all six of these tables, and if so, where do the drinkers go, having made the effort to get here? One point deducted...On the plus side, the landlord offered a woman who wished to change her baby the use of his office in the absence of such facilities.
Beers? Wye Valley Bitter, St. Austell’s Tribute, Twickenham’s Naked Ladies and TT Landlord at £4.30 a pint which isn’t bad for the area; it was in good nick too.
I'd happily come here again in theory, but the pub's seating policy rather gives the impression that being able to drink here is a question of pot luck. Perhaps it might be an idea to play them at their own game and book a table but not eat.

A return visit a few days later and my pint of Twickenham's Naked Ladies (£4.30) was seriously off. This is my third visit and on my first, the beer was off too. A pub which gets its ale wrong 66% of the time has lost my vote of confidence.

CAMRA GBG 2017 Entry. Looked through window and could only see dining tables but it is larger than expected, with bar, conservatory and nice garden around the back.

A surprising TT Boltmaker was offer. Genuinely rarely seen outside of Yorkshire.

In good nick.

A decent pub. Visit blogged at http://bit.ly/2wM3nj2

The Junction Tavern is a typical looking London corner pub which has black painted frontage.
You have to enter the pub from the side entrance,once inside the pub is split into two halfs,the bar faces inwards and serves the rear room which is for drinkers,this room is bare boarded and has basic wood benches and pew seats plus normal tables and chairs,the front area is seat aside for diners and all tables here are laid out for them,there is also an open kitchen in the front area.
There was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Reunion Ales Opening Gambit,which was a very nice drink,the other real ales were Taylor Landlord,Ringwood Boondogle,Wye Valley HPA and By the Horns Hop Air Balloon.
I thought this was a very pleasant pub to have a drink in with friendly service.
