Something of a timewarp but that's a plus. Reasonably priced pints and a friendly atmosphere make this a great pub. Shame the landlord is having to close.

Lovely friendly pub which fortunately doesn't appear to have been touched for at least 30 years (except for the unobtrusive small flat screens with the sport). Hopefully the interior is listed.

The real bonus is the total absence of background music, allowing the (mostly Irish) customers to enjoy their conversations without having to shout at each other.

The Irish landlord is very friendly, and whilst there was no real ale available on our visit, the Guinness is as good as one might expect, and was selling well.

Friendly typical London pub. Nothing special but worth a look for traditionalness

The way pubs used to be. With two plasma screens

Visited last night to watch the 2nd half of the Spurs game.

Pub is a complete timewarp, and a very well-preserved one at that. Wood panelling, carpets and comfortable perimiter seating. Interesting windows and woodwork and traditional lighting. Two plasma screens.

There were only around 7 people in the pub - midweek at 9pm. The lady serving me was very pleasant and the few punters coming in and out were relaxed, mainly middle aged folk.

Handpump not in use, but saw Theakstons badge turned round. No problems with the Guinness, though! It is worth visiting for its interior merit alone, and its future seems precarious in today's world.

I am rating it not as a real-ale pub but as a friendly local the way pubs used to be.
