Claims to be the oldest pub in Putney but the inside is most definitely not old and does make it feel a bit soulless. However, the seats are very comfortable and they had a very nice guest ale on. The background music was just that so you could have a conversation with the person next to you without having to shout. Not far from Putney high street either but did not have any of the rough element that seems to frequent near the station. Overall, a nice experience.

£8.00 for a small glass of Rioja. That was enough to piut me off. Much better pubs in the area.

This is my new local.
Having moved to the area 6 months ago I have frequented this pub quite a few times and on all occasions have had an enjoyable experience.
Staff are friendly and seem to get on well with the regulars.
Ales available are IPA and Abbott plus the barman told me that they quite often have a guest ale and at the moment it's The Royal London.
I agree with the below review and also recommend the Lamb Burger which comes with the best chips Iíve ever had. We started with Devilled White Bait which was equally as delicious.

I highly recommend this pub for good value for money.

My local .. and not a bad little pub.

Good allrounder without being spectacular.

Staff are fine, clientel are inoffensive, beer selection ok, and as a previous poster stated: has a unobtrusive flatscreen that shows all the sport but is just far enough away from Putney High Street to avoid the chavs that populate The Fox.

The best feature is actually the food. Fairly basic such as fish and chips, etc.. but absolute quality and well priced. I would highly recommend the lamb burger, the best I've had.

Everything you want in a local, but not so good that it attracts the hordes.

Went here a few weeks ago. Very nice bar staff and decent pints. Food was excellent and really tasty. Not too many people in there which is a pity as it could help the atmosphere of the place a bit. Would definitely recommend for food although the place is a but dull for a night out!
