user reviews of the Manor, Old Malden

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

As per the previous review, this is now a Co-Op. The blue sign you can see on the picture is still there and gives false hope as you exit the station. But then you notice the green Co-Op signs.

Sadly The Manor is no more...it shut down toward the end of June 2013 and, we think, is destined to be a Co-op store.

Actually found this not to be too bad when went in last week. I have heard plenty of bad reports about the pub and its punters and despite looking a little threatening from the outside it actually turns out to be quite OK inside. The downside though was the lack of beer when in which was only Courage (yuk in anywhere - it's a horrible beer) and was forced to drink John Smith's smooth which was none to bad and reasonably priced too. Put a couple more beers on pump and this may become a better pub. On bus routes K1, S3 and the station (Malden Manor) is right next door to the pub.

The Manor is a little gem of a pub. Just opposite Malden Manor station, you'll find fantastic food (I recommend the home made burgers), some fine local ales, several seperate bars to suite your mood and a chilled out and relaxing atmosphere. Pop in and you'll be greeted by the very friendly landlord and will soon feel at home.

One clip advertised Caledonian 80 but unfortunately it was off (no barrel on); they could have turned the clip round, but didnít. another handpump was for Bombardier but it was off (barrel on but sour and undrinkable). That left Courage Best as the best bet, and it was OK Ė that is, it tasted like Courage Best usually does. Good job it was on too, the next best was extra cold John Smith Smooth! This pub is quite interesting in that it retains all the original separate bars Ė Public; Private; and Lounge. Itís a large stand alone pub right next to Malden Manor station, that seems to cater for locals. In fact, thereís not much reason to travel to visit this pub. Itís OK for a pint if you happen to be passing (as I was) but not really worth any special effort to visit.

Recently given a bit of a spruce up, The Manor is well worth a visit if you're passing through the area or are just off the train.

The beers are well kept and the guvnor Gaz is always a welcoming host, just as long as you don't give him grief for being a Leeds fan!

Try it......

Has a reputation as being rough, but seems spacious and quiet, actually, especially early afternoon. However they do a really rotten pint of Doom Bar - which can be sourish, but not like this. I came back a week later and was daft enough to try it again. Yuk.

The landlord here seems to have turned this pub around since my last visit. It's been in the Good Beer Guide for the past two years running. Two excellent local ales on the bar along with Courag Best and probably the largest range of lagers I've ever seen. I walked in during a Chelsea game on the big screen. The place was full and a bit loud but all in good humour.

Like League of Gentleman but with chav's and scroungers (obviously our taxes are going to a good cause!). Hugely overpriced drinks to top off a terrible night out!

Friendly regulars, friendly staff and a good selection of beers. Does not deserve a shady reputation nowadays...

Built as a guest house in 1936, then it became clear the A3 wasn't going to pass close by after all. This is an estate pub keeping a lot of its original features including separate rooms, one of which is currently being sympathetically refurbished. Beers were Tom Woods and Hopback Summer Lightning. Considering it's an estate pub it is very nice indeed and the landlord is friendly and knowledgeable.

My one acquaintance with this pub was a little strange. We bought a Guiness as nothing else palatable was on offer, when the door slammed open, someone rode into the bar on a mountain bike, rode up the stairs to the pool table area, round the tables, back down the stairs and out again. No-one else seemed to think this was unusual. We left shortly afterwards.

A poor pub but it's hard to see how it could improve without demolition, redesign & relocation - it has my sympathy.
