I enjoyed my visit here,the open plan and wooden floor feel right in what is a modest sized interior.The two long bench seats in dark green leather are offset by wooden furniture and square tables giving a modern vibe,while the photos dotted around of popular vocalists fit well with a well chosen muzak selection.There is also a juke box if you want to influence the music choice.The open kitchen to one side was producing some good smells,and the menu looked interesting with a chalk board of daily specials and a menu of rotisserie chicken,burgers,cod and steaks with main between £10 and £20,but food doesn't dominate.
There are 4 handpumps drawing on my visit Otter Bitter,Theakstons Tour de Wot,ELB Pale Ale and a very good Dark Star American Pale Ale and at £4.10,given the nature of the area,quite reasonably priced.
The quiz adds to the community charm and there was a good mix of ages enjoying the wares on my Tuesday late afternoon visit.
A decent pub ,well worth a visit given the rotating ale range and deserving it's GBG listing.

Bizarrely, we were on our way to this pub when I was 'pinged' by the review below. Now that's what I call a coincidence!
A first in what was originally The Grosvenor Arms and unsurprisingly it hadn't changed much since Ray reviewed it...errr...about six minutes earlier. The pub is still part bare brick, a rough bare floor, basic old school furniture, brown ceiling, TV projector and ugly aircon ductwork; there's an open kitchen which I don't like because they tend to be noisy and generate excess heat, unwanted on a very hot day.
Ales: Something I couldn't quite see, Wimbledon's Copper Leaf, East Bay's Pilgrimage and Otter Brewery's Ale at a fairly steep £2.05 a half and ok, nothing more.
This pub is fine but I can't see myself rushing back though there's not much else around here; worth a look, especially if you want a 1.00 am Friday/Saturday night drink.

A good pub this one, I went for the Totally Brewed Guardian of the Forest, which was an excellent pint on our Monday afternoon visit. The interior is quite gastro with an open plan kitchen adjacent to the bar, flowers on the table etc. We got here at 4pm when the pub had just opened, so there was only 6 other drinkers in at that stage, so it felt more pub like. I would definitely return here for the beer quality alone.
