Superb looking pub from the outside but more geared towards food than beer! ESB and an average Pride on when I called in. Glad to have popped in but I wouldn't rush back!

As mentioned, this dates back to 1727 as a coaching inn, now grade II-listed and rebuilt in 1910 by A. P. Killick for Fuller Smith Turner, the name visible in faience tiling, along with fantastic mauve and lilac tiling, blue tiling in the entrance vestibule.
The pub is still owned by Fuller’s, but the beautiful façade is where the joy ends and abruptly too. On entering, I was fair punched in the face by the overpowering stink of fish sauce, as Thai food is the order of the day here, which I like – in a Thai restaurant. The floor is pale and modern, in what is in effect a fairly large opened out affair. Walls are part panelled and smoky blue, white above to a modern white ceiling with recessed spotlights, all of which can be seen on the pub website’s gallery, along with the not-so-secret ‘secret’ garden; all very corporate, especially the exposed air handling ductwork above the bar back. The skeleton of a fish on a finished plate of food which greeted me on arrival, had yet to be cleared when I left, 20 minutes later. Customers were mixed, including at least one young child.
The ale range held no surprises, with Seafarer, Pride, Hophead (off) and ESB at £2.40 a half, too cold and not tasting anything like the ESB I remember of old.
This is a very bland pub experience, but it’s downhill from here as you make your way back to the Tube.

I'd not visited before but was immediately struck by the magnificant blue tile and red brick exterior dating to 1910. Unfortunately the interior didn't live up to the expectations being somewhat dull and ordinary. A Fuller's house, the ales are well kept although the selection limited. The food, I thought, was on the expensive side (the portion of chips accompanying my meal comprised about six thin chips served up in a souvenir china Fuller's mug. They looked a bit lost and sorry for themselves in the mug - I thought at least I'd be able to keep the mug at that inflated price but, sadly, not. All in all not particularly good value, ambience or overall experience.
