The Hope, Wandsworth Common

I think The Hope has upped its game recently, which it seriously needed to do.

I'd all but given up on it, but the last couple of visits the staff were much more on the ball, more efficient, more sociable, more knowledgeable and helpful. Pub was cleaner and tidier. Excellent pints of things I've now forgotten - they're still serving a ever changing selection of good beer.

6/10, because I'm still wary of a return to its former, weaker form.

The Cat's Back, Wandsworth

What he said - reopened as a Harvey's pub. Comfortable and pleasant, very clean and crisp at the moment, perhaps a little sterile but it should weather well.

Made a point of trying all four beers that were on. Sussex Best is, in my opinion, one of the greatest beers ever brewed. Armada, Olympia, and a rather punchy Jubilee special were all excellent.

The gaffer and gafferesse were very sociable and pleasant. Seem keen to maintain some live music in the future, and looking forward to the kitchen opening soon.

I would say it lacks some of the character of its predecessor, but it would be impossible to maintain. All in all, it shows a lot of promise.

8/10 (+1 due to serving Sussex Best)
