This is a modern bar/restaurant beneath a modern block. It's a large place, with all but a few tables, some with sofas, laid for diners. Although I obviously sat at one of the tables not so laid, I was still asked if I was dining today. Table service was of course available for those dining; maybe also for drinkers but I didn't test that. There's nothing traditional about the place, with potted palms dotted around; bare-boarded of course; and walls and bar counter are painted a sort of aquamarine colour. There are a fair number of tables outside in an enclosed area.

It was less than half full during my weekday lunchtime visit, bit it was still very noisy. It's not the place to go for a quiet pint. But they did have Sambrook's Wandle on handpump (£2.40 a half) which was avctually in excellent condition.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Loose Box

Large bar with a wide frontage meaning that there is plenty of natural light inside. The modern decor is also quite pale, so it usually has a reasonably airy feel even towards the back (unless rammed and under-staffed, as it can be after work on a Thursday or Friday). Several different seating areas with mixed furniture, with the emphasis more on dining again than on my previous visit three years ago (and rather intrusive attempts at offering table service). Further seating outside at small tables on the front patio. Background music at a sensible volume. Just two handpumps, with Pride and Wandle (£4.75) available as last time.

Soulless place with two weak real ale and usual keg offerings. Despite me being virtually the only person in the pub the barmaid started to pour me a pint instead of a clearly asked for half so a point off for that.
