This is a Young’s pub, with St Austell Tribute on as a guest. The Tribute tasted fine, but at £1.75 a half (thus circa £3.50 a pint) at the top end of the price range for non-Central London. This looks like a typical Young’s pub. There’s a central island bar now, with all manner of furnishings surrounding it – armchairs, sofas, banquettes, tall benches/tall tables, plus some normal tables and chairs. A separate, but inter-connected, room on the right had most tables set for diners, however the menu advertised some pretty standard pub grub – burger and chips at £7.95, and sandwiches at around the £5 - £6 mark. The tables sported the unusually seen contrast of small candles and beer mats. The decor in the main room comprised mainly photographs of London scenes, but there was a rather nice Bass brewery mirror on the wall at the back. I spotted a couple of TVs on the walls, but switched off during my weekday lunchtime visit. Apparently there is a beer garden at the rear, which I didn’t visit, and there are also a fair number of picnic benches at the front set back from the main road.
Clearly this is nothing like the traditional boozer it once was, but I found the service to be friendly and welcoming, and the Tribute was a decent drop of ale. There’s nothing special about this pub, in my opinion, that would drag me out of my way to visit again, but it’s a decent enough place to stop off for a pint if you’re passing.
