The Wheatsheaf, Tooting Bec

I don't know if there's been a change in terms of who's running the place, but have to agree with the comments below and have now largely abandoned what had for a while been a very promising spot.

The staff are awful. Genuinely awful. Food orders not taken properly, surliness when asked about them, generally "I'm far too cool to be serving you" attitude. If they spent less time talking to each other, comparing ironic haircuts and showing each other their piercings then the place would probably run a bit more smoothly.

The Meantime Pale Ale tap has had a glass sat on it for months. Really - stock the beer, or get rid of the tap. 5 or 6 real ale taps, usually no more than 2 on sale and these in pretty average condition. A real sense that there's no enthusiasm at all for beer from whoever is running the place now.

Bottled beer regularly emerges from the fridge warm. This can only be for one of two reasons - they're too idle to bottle up last thing at night, or someone doesn't know how to rotate bottle stock in a fridge.

All in, I can't remember the last time I encountered such a bunch of self regarding, miserable incompetents behind a bar. The average Wetherspoons crew are shining examples of the barman's craft in comparison.

Antic should turf every last one of them out on their ear.

The Wheatsheaf, Tooting Bec

Now firmly established as my local, and has definitely grown into itself. Beer is good, food is up to the mark and the re-design inside has gradually taken shape. Along with the Antelope, is now highly recommendable to anyone looking for a good pint in Tooting.

The Selkirk, Tooting

Nice pub with a good cider and beer range. Nice outdoor space, good food, friendly staff and an interesting range of entertainment. Liek the reviewer below, I'd put it alongside the Antelope (and increasingly the ever improving Wheatsheaf) in terms of the best pubs in Tooting.
