With a CAMRA listed interior of Regional Importance, this is located in a none-too-attractive location. The Atlas was remodelled after the War due to bomb damage; the interior is a 1930s’ refit with fantastic inlaid Truman’s lettering indicating their range of beers, applied to the picture rail, above the threequarters-height wood field panelling; there’s also a Truman’s mirror inset into the panelling. The floor is boarded but what really catches the eye, is the chequered spittoon running around the curved, panelled bar. The bar back is simple and probably authentic for the period. Furniture comprises fitted pews to the front room along with dark wainscotting, which is delineated from the rear, by a frame, above which is a glass paned panel; tables and chairs are standard. To the rear, are chunky tables and chairs with a scrubbed appearance. There are also three brick arched fireplaces, which may have Truman’s ‘eagle’ motifs above the arch, but I was discouraged from inspecting by a slightly ditzy barmaid who insisted on table service. On high, is a white ceiling with coved burgundy cornice; customers were mixed locals, young and old.
Three pumps had reversed clips, the other with Tribute which I was told by said barmaid was off and that Landlord was available which I chose. She then told me that indeed Tribute was available, which I picked as the only choice; it was on good form though at a hefty £5.20.
This has a great boozer feel to it and despite the lack of ale choice, is definitely worth a punt if in this neck of the woods.

A pretty and inviting backstreet pub with extensive exterior foliage. Warm and traditional feel inside but it is gastroised further within - mains for 20 quid! The interwar refit interior is now part, rather than fully, split into two via a frosted glass partition upper. There’s plenty of old school wood furniture, wood panelling and some old script insets with ‘Burton Bitter’, ‘mild ales’ etc and indeed it is listed on the CAMRA National Inventory. Four ales available at the far end of the bar - Pride (NBSS 2.5) Doom Bar, TT Landlord and St Austell Tribute (3) – expect high end prices (I was relieved of £2.55 for a half) though the bar staff were friendly and efficient. Overall I quite enjoyed my 45 minutes in here and it’s worth a visit.

This is a nice old side street pub just a short walk from West Brompton station. The pub's exterior is notable on approach thanks to some pretty extensive foliage around the building, making it look like an attractive proposition before you've even entered the place. inside, you find a bare boarded room with the servery along the left hand wall and a partially retained partitioning screen about one third of the way into the room which has a lovely frosted glass upper section. The front part of the room has a mix of pews and chairs centred around a brick fireplace with lots of framed photographs studding an otherwise rather plain set of cream walls. The bar has a nice dark wood counter and bar back and the counter has what appears to be a modern replacement top and an original checker-board tiled spittoon trough along the base which suggests to me that this is a former Trumans pub. The rear potion of the room has more of the same seating around another brick fireplace, above which hangs a Trumans mirror to further my suspicions. the tables in this rear part of the room were set up more for those wanting to eat and right on cue, I spotted an open kitchen on the back wall. This area has been decked out in some attractive wood panels and to the right I noticed a door out to a fantastic split level courtyard garden. There were also signs for an upstairs room, but I did not manage to locate this. At least on TV screen was mounted on the wall, but it remained off and rather refreshingly, there was no music playing throughout the course of my visit.
Four ales were on at the bar - Black Sheep Bitter, Sharps Doom Bar, Taylor Landlord and Twickenham Naked Ladies. The latter was priced at £4.30 a pint and was in decent shape, served to me by a friendly barman.
I thought this was a very smart, well presented pub with comfortable furnishings, a reasonable ale range and a great garden which makes it well worth knowing about if you're in the area. I enjoyed my brief visit here and would suggest it's one of the better options around the direct vicinity of the station.
