Bucking Fastard left this review about The London & South Western

On the ground floor of a curved office block and opposite the Falcon,this is quite a modest sized 'spoons with a raised section to the right and lots of high tables opposite the bar which runs around a rear wall.Popular but not rammed prior to a Twickers rugby international,at least we found a free table here after searching in vain in the Falcon.
It's totally unmemorable,the ale selection dominted by the trio of Doom with guests Thornbridge Jaipur,Oakham Bishops Farewell (NBSS 1.5) and something I failed to note.Had either the Jaipur or the Bishops' been in good nick that could have saved the visit,but my pint was cloudy and tired and the food arrived at suspicious speed and was flabby.One to avoid.

Yes, it's another 'spoons just like most other 'spoons. The main room at the front as you enter seems to be the busest (or it was when I was in - probably because that's where the bar counter is sited), with another smaller more comfortable room on the right. I was in fairly late (gone 10.00 PM) and at some stage before we finished our pints the staff decided to close the smaller room and required us the decant to the larger room. A bit of a nuisance, but not a showstopper.

I agree that the emergence of this pub is bad news for the Falcon opposite. Guest ales in the London & South West are £2.39 a pint, so with three CAMRA vouchers the three pints I bought cost £5.67 - almost exactly what I paid for a single pint in the Falcon. I much prefer the Falcon as a pub, but for a lot of people that sort of price difference is a deal breaker.

The one thing I do quite like about 'spoons pubs are the links to the local area included in the decor. In this one there is a tribute to the iconic film and play "Up the Junction", and of course the classic "Lavender Hill Mob".

An average 'spoons, but some may say that's a good thing.
