Good Beer Guide 2022 Entry - Eight hand pulls in two banks of 4. Landlord (fine condition), Citra and Titanic Plum porter nearest to my perch at the bar, where I was completely in the way.

Every table in the two rooms is either reserved or occupied by diners. There is a thin strip at the window for drinkers but half a dozen people will fill that up.

Screaming kids.

It is a handsome building in a gorgeous mews street but having got the tick, I won't be coming back.

Unless I have booked a table for lunch :-)

The place is well described below, with photos viewable on the website’s gallery. Customers tended to be younger and all local; no tourist is going to find this place in a hurry. One real problem here, is that the acoustics were appalling, a place where everyone has to talk ever louder to be heard, the resulting crescendo being hard to take.
There were eight pumps here, amazingly all in use, delivering something that wasn’t from GK for once, or Pride or Doom. Ok, I lied: Doom is available and on two of the pumps. Otherwise, Rosie Pig cider, Proper Job, Hophead, Landlord and Ghost Ship, £2.80 the half, in fine condition, served by a goofy but ultimately charming barmaid.
This is the best pub in SW7 hands down and must be one of the best pubs in the whole borough, not that that’s saying much. A more imaginative ale choice would get the score up, as would doing something about the acoustics, perhaps by applying more sound deadening décor, or perhaps curtains.

A classic mews pub,tricky to find but worth the effort.The apex front door gives way to an L shaped interior with wood panelling up to the dado rail on the left,a carved wooden bar back and a wood divider to a snug area on the right.Traditional furniture ,a drinking shelf opposite the short side of the bar while outside drinking is allowed until 9pm to preserve the quiet for residents.
Tables can be reserved but times are noted and dining will be common,there is a short menu with starters £7-9,mains £14-24 but bar snacks are avaiable and my chips with cheese and gravy was terrific for £5.The short but pricey wine list probably contains quality ,and given the upmarket location I would guess that also extends to the food.
However I was more focussed on the ale and there was a very friendly,chatty wecome from behind the bar.There are 8 handpumps but on my trip Doom Bar was doubled up,there was a real cider,TT Landlord and St Austell Proper Job(great nick,NBSS 4,£5.40 as you might expect here.)There were a lot of keg taps but these appeared to be large well know brands rather than craft keg.
The constant muzak didn't spoil the atmosphere,this is a very traditional pub well worth a visit especially if you like mews pubs.
