Our first of the day. Three hand pumps of which our choice of ale had just gone off. There was a strange smell in the air which none of us could identify.

On exiting Fulham Broadway and heading down to the 606 Club this was our first stop. Now I cannot comment for what the place was like as The Pelican as I never visited, but I think it’s a fairly good guess to say that the Tommy Tucker is now very different to its former guise.
Taken over some time in 2014 by someone called Claude Compton, who apparently is a chef of some renowned in these parts, I believe it’s been completely made over and now functions more as a gastro / pub restaurant.
Basically a one room open plan space with a smaller back area just for dining, the minimalist Gastro décor, all wooden floors, large wooden tables and assortment of different chairs hits you as soon as you enter. But not as much as the strange bar / serving area that protrudes forward into the main room from one of those open kitchens that allows you to see the sweat and toil of the various white clothed chefs sweating and running about within. The bar itself is a strange modern aluminium thing with one bank of keg draft options on one side and thankfully three ale pumps on the other. Then all the other spirits e.t.c. are in bottles on a metal shelf construction above the bar. It has metal leather seated bar stools around and you begin to get an idea of the target demographic for this place when you notice when perched on one of these that the bar top is crowded with large jars of different caramelised dried fruit slices for the G&T’s and cocktails. None of your normal lemon slices for the Old money of Fulham and Chelsea then.
The three beers available were St Austell’s tribute, TT Landlord and something called Tommy Tuckers Winters Ale brewed by Marstons. I went for a pint of the Tommy Tucker brew and regretted it as it was thin in both consistency and taste. However the wife really enjoyed here G&T , which clearly was a cut above Gordons, and loved the caramelised lime slice, which was a bloody good job as both drinks lightened my wallet by £10.75.
As a throwback to the old pub I guess they still have the traditional wooden "Real Ales On" board on the wall, but again here tellingly in the three available slots below the three Ales available were three of the recommended house wines. I can’t recall what these specifically were because I couldn’t see past the chalked up prices of £45, £55 and £75 a bottle.
The food menu was interesting and seemed to be made up of a lot of small plates, positioned as tapas-style British food. We were not planning to eat here and I’m not sure I would have chosen to, but perhaps one day I may be tempted to gamble £7 on Chilled Tomato & Strawberry Soup with Basil Jelly, but probably more likely the Brown Crab Cakes with Roast Garlic Mayo at £8.50 or one of the fish mains, the Day Boat Fish with courgette, cucumber and honey and herbs.
If you are more at home with the Chelsea football crowd then this one will now be off your radar, but if you want to experience where the old Money of Fulham and Chelsea now pop out for a casual meal, come here.
Oh and for the record the downstairs toilets are very smart and any naked ladies that used to be in situ in the Pelican days (see below) have long gone.
