An attractive, large, open plan pub that feels Victorian with its etched glass and wood panelled walls, but it may have been converted from another use (possibly a school?). It has eight hand pumps and about ten keg taps with a good selection of beers. Itís light, airy and comfortable. There are squashy sofas as well as more traditional tables and chairs in the front part. At the back, Victorian pub meets hunting lodge as you go through into a vast library-like dining room with another large room (which seemed to be full of children) off it, just up some steps. Thereís also a pleasant patio outside at the back. I liked it a lot - well worth a visit.

Traditional three-room pub 5 minutesí walk from Tooting Broadway. Woodpanelling throughout, traditionally lit comfortable and spacious. Seven hand pumps and five keg taps dispense a changing range of ales and keg beers. I enjoyed Adnams Lighthouse and Nethergate Truman Runner. Friendly staff at the bar, mixed clientele and background music that is JUST THAT. Food is excellent - yes you can eat cheaper elsewhere but you get what you pay for. My visit of 28th May 2011 was on GBG recommendation, and the book appears to have got it right!
