I have visited recently only to be ignored by the posing bar staff who blatantly serve their friends ahead of customers. Some of them should remember their manners. It is usually quite cliquey with the staff all jousting with each other rather than paying attention to what they should be doing.

Which is all very unfortunate because it is an attractive looking bar and the food is very good - if over-priced - needless to say. The beer selection is excellent, in fairness, apart from the fact that on more than one occasion a certain ale was off.

Nothing unusual with that - except it looks a bit silly and slapdash that a pub named 'The Wandle' can't even produce a reliable flow of locally-produced Wandle ale.

Popular with braying southern hemisphere Earlsfielders with credit cards, incidentally. Paying with cash is not the norm here, it seems.

Anyway, The Wandle has it's good points (beer selection, good beer garden) but whoever runs the place should understand that it could - and should - be so, so much better.

This pub has totally changed since being rebranded as "The Wandle" The interior decor is much better and they seem to be really trying to upgrade the ladies loos (which trust me were dire before) The garden area is lovely and in the summer (which seems long ago now) it was a delight to sit in. There is table service available and all staff I have met have been polite and friendly. A tad middle class and I wouldn't suggest visiting for an authentic pub atmosphere but a nice spot to spend an evening.

This pub is now called The Wandle, under new management I guess. I like it. It usually has 2 ales on (Wandle/Doom Bar/ Adnam's Broadside) they are usually in good nick (all 3-3.10/pint, cheaper than the Young's pubs nearby). It has a nice garden, with covered seating with flat screen TVs. It has many screens indoors. Staff are very polite. They have BBQ & food available every day it seems, and the food has been good when I've tried it. Clientele varied, mainly late 20s-30s I would say. Live music on the weekends (not always to my tastes but at least they're making an effort I guess).
I would recommend this pub if in the Earlsfield area.

Hell on earth. Unless you idea of a good pub is loads of Saffers watching South African state rugby discussing who can drink the most out of their shoe.

What's happening with this place?? use to have plenty of friendly staff that were always pleased to see customers and never waited a long time to be served. i was here last night and last saturday for the super 14's. service was really poor, not enough staff on and the ones that were, were well unhappy, hopefully this weekend will be better, if not i might have to go to another bar to watch the sport as i am not waiting 15 mins to get served!!!
