“Imposing pub on a busy junction on the outskirts of Carshalton. Owned by Shepherd Neame but three guests are available, including locally brewed ales. Quiet on a weekday afternoon but I imagine this large pub can get busy and noisy on a weekend. Worth popping in if you’re also visiting The Hope and The Sun.“

“Bright and airy pub with a focus on food, however there are several interesting ales on offer. While I enjoyed my half several bookings were being taken for Sunday lunch so I imagine the food is also very good. Well worth stopping by if in the area.“

“Gem of a local pub, near Carshalton station. Looks traditional from the outside but inside there’s a well chosen selection of ales and craft beer available. My Arbor Triple hop was in good condition. No music or fruit machines so there are no distractions from the beer. Pleased to see a billiards table in the back room. Great pub.“

“I think that this used to be a Greene King pub, but has recently changed management. Could become interesting in the future...but at the moment there is still just Greene King on cask. Light interior, basic selection. With better selection, it could be a good one.“

“Very small pub on Carshalton High Street. Mustard coloured walls, loud music. Some standard lagers on. Not one cask ale available as their London Pride had run out. One to avoid if contemplating a Carshalton crawl.“

“A corner pub next to Grove park.

Some standard beers on keg, as well as Leffe. Five cask ales (Doom Bar, Tiny Rebel, a Greene King special and two other random would-be ticks), and it looks like at least four rotate. Quieter than other pubs I visited in the area. Low music, pictures on the walls, very light interior, nice comfy sofas, service was decent and the beer was in great condition.

A nice surprise. Close to the Hope for those who want to have a short crawl.“

“As you’re walking through the Grove park, you can see the twinkly lights of this pub and you’re instantly drawn. It really looks very inviting from the outside. Inside it has a low ceiling, big panelled windows. All good so far, so imagine my disappointment when there are exactly 0 cask ales on, and a few standard lagers on keg! Could be a good one if they sharpened up their selection.“

“Old school pub vibe (bar towels, patterned carpets, pump clips on the walls) with a craft beer twist. Kernel and Magic Rock on keg, Crouch Vale and various others on cask.

Very cramped toilets - got to know the patrons a bit better than expected. Service was good overall. Lots of people brought their own glasses/man-tankards - this seems to be accepted by staff.

I didn’t get food but perhaps should have done as the neighbouring Chinese was pretty average.

Not perfect, but certainly close to the type of local we all dream of...and they serve thirds!“

“Lovely old characterful pub. Truly part of our pub heritage that should be treasured forever. Fantastic homely atmosphere with both staff and locals warm and engaging. There are a few taps here with a very good selection of beers. On my visit, Arbor, Brodies and even a Mikkeller beer! From the pump clips on the wall its clear that Arbor, Raw, Dark Star, Marble and Brodies are favourites. There has also been beers from Oakham, Titanic and many other quality brewers. They are not afraid to take beer from new breweries either. The folk of Carlshalton are well looked after here! On my visit there was a great mini beer fest in a tent put out the back. The beers were in excellent condition. One of those rare places where casks are a real joy. The food was laid on free by a local cheese merchant and it was great (this part of meet the brewer - Arbor) When it got a little chilly in the tent there was a lovely open fire back in the pub to warm your cockles. Truly a lovely pub. There are only two things wrong with it - too many barstools and the fact that this pub is not my local!“

“The Woodman is located on Carshalton high street. It is a very charming old building. The interior is traditional - low ceiling and wood panelled. Has a very local-pub feel. Other than the ambience this is a pretty standard pub. They have 3 casks on offer - Bombardier and 2x guests - I opted for the Everards Elixir. Tasting notes on the guest pump-clips is a nice touch. Standard pub food on offer. Not the cheapest at all - £3.60 for a pint of ale. Perhaps worth stopping past on a pub crawl, but you might as well just head straight to marvellous The Hope!“

“I’m surprised this place was not on Ratebeer before! It’s located right next to Carshalton station. You could easily walk past it, as it looks like a fairly standard pub from the outside. Inside it’s traditional and cosy, with lots of period features - fireplace, old signage and pictures of boats. There is even a billiards room in the back and a small patio area! There are 12 beers on tap - 7 cask beer, 3 cider and 3 keg. The tap focus is on microbreweries such as Ascot, Darkstar, Hardknott, Windsor & Eaton to name but a few. No crap on tap, so the keg beers include Williams Bro Ceildh and Hacker-Pschorr Munchener Hell instead of Fosters. The website actually has a "Beer-Cam", which is continually updated. They also have an ever changing contemporary bottle list, which included Kernel, Magic Rock, Bristol Beer Factory, Orval.... Food is traditional and good value, but still very tasty - we went for the gigantic ploughman "salad". Friendly staff. This place is spot-on - the perfect balance between traditional pub and modern, interesting beer selection. One of my new favourite pubs!“
