Quality of Drinks

Normally several cask ales on with a large selection of Belgian and German beers in the fridge. Otherwise typical back bar.


Bright red hoardings with terrace out the front. Inside, multiroom with upholstered seating in familiar London fashion and a continuation of the red paint. A side room with rickety furniture, and walls decorated with breweriana, local history and ephemera including the strange cabinet by the entrance.


The character you’d expect from a pub that’s got a little bit more going on with it than most. Dusky during the day and brilliant in the evening.

Value For Money

Fair value for London, albeit this venue is further out than some.

Award winning London pub that is well-known and well-loved. Distinctive red signage and a similarly distinctive interior give the place a lot of character. This is supported by a raft of community of events, good quality cask ales, large bottle selection, billiards and reasonably priced pub meals. One to seek out.
