Reopened. Unless I was dreaming.

Good beer and friendly service. Charming layout.

Only odd thing was that people were coming into look around and be fascinated at things in the building that are very standard features in some of my elderly relatives' flats. Maybe I should organise some tours and charge a bit of money?

After a recommendation from my usual haunt (O'neill's in Wimbledon - thanks Mark!) I decided to venture forth up to Balham Bowls Club (BBC) slightly nervous and not knowing quite what to expect. My nerves were quickly settled on arrival after being greeted by the delectable Amy, (the apron was mighty fetching). Her expertise and knowledge of the drinks was second to none and despite being full to the rafters she was always on call with the next tipple, (whatever that might be). The "free" sausage roll was a perfect absorber of my particular favourite the 'grolsch' (thanks Amy).

The night was only marred by the toilets, which were abominable.

Good beers, very cool decor and I think the staff are pretty good actually.
Balham, though, is slowly getting as impatient and high maintenance as Clapham. With so many good bars thou should all be much more content.

Wow having to wait a whole 15 minutes to get served on a packed Saturday night! Sorry but you have very high standards. The staff have always been great to me (especially the French girl with the dark hair).

Also they've started doign Sunday roasts which are flipping fantastic and must be tried.
