Still an excellent no frills boozer, ELB Night Watchman and Cowcatcher were the beers on, upgraded to 8/10.
September 2015
A small pub unchanged from a visit I made a few years earlier, the exterior lives up to its name ,being festooned in flowers, inside its very much an unpretentious single roomed basic boozer,dark stained floorboards,Red floral patterned wallpaper and mixed seating around the room. Three pumps with two on offering ELB Foundation Bitter and ELB Pale Ale, I had a decent pint of the latter at £3.90. I quite like it here.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Florist Arms

Decent little side-street pub with a 'U'-shaped bar and pleasingly traditional furniture and decor combined with a generally mixed young crowd of punters. Three real ales on offer, with Pale and Night Watchman from ELB and a decent pint of Five Points Railway Porter (£3.90) available on this brief visit.

They had on two Darkstar ales when I was in here on Saturday – the ubiquitous Hophead, and Partridge, which turned out to be a rich brown ale. I was charged only £3 for a pint of Partridge, which is at odds with Maldenman’s experience. Maybe I was undercharged – but the barman clearly asked for £3 so that’s what I gave him, and I don’t suppose they had a happy hour on Saturday lunchtime. Anyway, £3 for a pint of anything half decent is good going in London these days. Food is mainly pizzas, at around the £8 - £9 range. They offer a two for one lunchtime special on Sunday to Thursday.

The default glass for beer is a dimpled jug, but I managed to stop the barman in time to ask for a straight glass. The distressed sofa, low upholsterd bench and low table is still there by the window, but the majority of furnishings are normal tables and chairs. The tables all bore, very appropriately, a sprig of flowers in a small vase. There is more black and red floral wallpaper in here, although this version is a bit more restrained than that at The Camel. Music was being played at background level, which is just as well as we were being treated to the dulcet tones of Stevie Nicks. The barman was knowledgeable about Darkstar beers, which was handy as they had on two of their ales. I quite liked this place, which I didn’t really expect as on the surface it looked a bit gastro-pretentious. I think it makes a reasonable pairing with The Camel a few feet down the road.
