Horseshoe shaped bar in a fairly large building,the interior decor is enhanced in a typical Antic way with various oddments,plates, tankards and the like as well as the odd mounted deer head. Eight handles on the bar with five on the go Sunday lunch time,Wimbledon Common, Sambrooks Wandle and American Red ale along with Thornbridge Jaipur and house beer Volden Pale, given the early hour I gave the Jaipur a swerve and had the Volden at a very reasonable £3.20 a pint. I didn't dislike it here.

This large Victorian pub, just a short walk from Tooting Broadway tube station, was reopened in 2009 by the Antic chain following a period as part of the unsuccessful Jack Beard group. Previously the pub was known as the Foresters Arms and going even further back, it was in here that Tooting and Mitcham Football Club was originally conceived. On approach, the pub is notable for some fine floral displays and the attractive curved frosted front windows. You enter directly to the bar area with a large U shaped servery immediately opposite. Sadly, this seems to have lost part of its bar back, presumably the result of opening the front part of the pub out into a single room. The right hand side sees rather drab grey panelled walls decorated with numerous small plates and dishes, scrubbed tables with standard chairs and a few comfier looking tub chairs, whilst to the rear there is a nice, unusual frosted glass wall. The left hand side has a mix of standard and comfy leather chairs under dark wood panels with pictures of sports action hung above and various stuffed animals can be viewed from here as well. An open kitchen can be seen as you make your way down this side of the pub before emerging into a large rear room which is split level and seemingly acts as a dining area. The lower space has long benches with books lined around their backs, serving a number of standard tables, whilst the larger, raised left hand side is set in a grandly appointed room with obscured windows and lots of formal seating. A rear door leads out to a courtyard with a mix of picnic benches and garden furniture to choose from as well as a smoking shelter in an old barn-like structure.
The handpulls that run in a row directly opposite the front door, so that they are the first thing you see on entering, were offering Adnams Lighthouse, Malmesbury Athelstan, Head in a Hat Bowler, Purity Ubu, Cottage Apollo and King Hopa Cabana, with a real cider and a real perry completing the line up. I gave the Athelstan a try and thought it was top drawer - had I not had to head off to a gig, I would've stayed and tried a few more of their beers.
This is one of three Antic pubs in a short stretch towards the tube station and if Graveney and Meadow is the food-led pub and Tooting Tram and Social is the music-led pub, this place is very much the drinker's pub of the three. I enjoyed my time here and it would be the first place I return to the next time I'm in Tooting.
