A single roomed basic pub, L shaped inside, wood floor and paneling on the walls so a fairly traditional look, on the downside the TV was on at full volume competing with the Eminem on the jukebox also at full volume with the result that you couldn't hear either properly should you indeed want to, I didn't. The young barmaid was in conversation with a couple of punters over the bar, she too was shouting at full volume. Also disappointing was the beer selection, the only choice from five handpumps was London Pride and Seafareres. So it was no suprise I couldn't warm to this pub, it could and should, be so much better.

A fairly straightforward Fullers boozer. Staple shaped with a pool table to the left and some nice squared wood wall panelling. Two different rugby matches showing on three screens so we know it likes its sport. To the right is a dart board. Plenty of pumps but only two ales on; ESB and a cold and oddly sweetcorn tasting Pride. Incredibly sticky tables gives a clue as to the cleanliness levels. Not one I’d bother with next time - with three Fullers pubs within 5 minutes of each other this one doesn’t do anything to stand out.

At the top end of South Street is The Bulls Head, a 17th century brick tiled building. A former Gales pub, it’s now one of three Fullers pubs within close proximity to each other.

It’s a single L shaped bare boarded bar, but with much wood panelling helping to give a reasonably traditional feel to the place. Furniture is mainly traditional tables and chairs, but with a couple of sofas in one corner. There’s flowers in vases on the tables and what seems to be a rather half hearted attempt to get some food trade, but, on my Saturday lunchtime visit, there weren’t any takers.

Some photographs and prints on the walls would suggest that the landlord is a Chelsea supporter, which didn’t help me warm to the pub, although, in fairness, it’s reasonably restrained and not OTT in any way.

A big screen was showing the Arsenal v Spurs North London derby, with no sound, as it was a foreign TV channel, which contributed to an unusually subdued atmosphere amongst those locals watching.

There’s 5 pumps, but only Pride and Chiswick were on with, notably, for a former Gales house, no Gales branded beers on. The Chiswick - £ 2.95p – wasn’t up to much and it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t much beer trade.

A fairly average pub, at best – but I seem to recall it was rather better when it was a Gales pub
