user reviews of the Lord Palmerston, Carshalton

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

So on that basis I have to imagine what it might have been like inside.

Changed hands. Had a refurb.

No longer "The Lord Palmerston", but just "The Palmerston".

Long term staff got rid off. Customers boycotting the place.

2 bar pub (saloon and public kids you know it makes sense).

Fairly empty on a saturday afternoon but friendly service.

Unspoilt country style two-bar pub with 1920s-type wood panelling. Friendly on a Wednesday afternoon visit, three ales including very good Harveys Sussex. The only downside was the blaring Heart FM in the public bar.

Very nice country style pub. Excellent secletion of ales, as well as Stowford Press cider and Blackthorn on draft, the only pub in the Sutton area that still does it I'm told. Friendly staff too.

This is still a two-room pub, retaining what appear to be numerous original features Ė bar counter, wood panelling etc. Iím a bit surprised itís not on the CAMRA inventory of Londonís heritage interiors. Anyway, the only real ales they had on were Courage Best and Bombardier. The Bombardier was not particularly good, but maybe I was just unlucky.

This is a really attractive, low-ceilinged pub. If they advertised it as a country pub in London they would not be too far from the truth. The furnishings were comfortable, and I received a warm welcome from the barmaid/landlady. I liked this pub a lot Ė itís the sort of off the beaten track local that appeals to me. Without a guest ale itís a very good pub (and I am giving them the benefit of the doubt regarding the iffy pint of Bombardier I had) but with one it would be an absolute gem.

Went in for the first time recently. Never been in before but go past it a lot. To my surprise, a very nice place with great choice of beer and staff are great too.
I like to see places that still have a 'public bar'.

Fairly unpleasant locals pub with badly kept ales to boot. Could be a lovely residential pub with new management but currently only attracts the local scaffolding community and burberry cap wearers. Real shame.

Prettily done out at the front with hanging baskets, somewhat belying the earthiness of the locals, no problem with that but the downpoint was the lack of beer - courage only, decent condition but I'm just not keen.

Not a bad pub but very rough in the public bar where the darts players are.

Affected, ostentatious, showy. The Lord Palmerston is none of these.

An honest, old fashioned public house, with honest, old fashioned regulars to boot. One for the meat raffle brigade rather than the disco dancers.

Beer OK (Courage Best, Youngs Ordinary & Special) but hot weather not helping. Good friendly pub, separate public bar. Cash quizzes on Sundays, you don't even need an anorak to win!

Seems to have a policy of employing young attractive barmaids!

Very much a "locals" pub

I like this pub. Dont use it that often, but when I do go in, theres always staff available for a fair priced, good pint. Would reccomend. Seems to cater for anyone & everyone, the beer garden's nice. One of the hidden gems in this neck of the woods.
