This pleasant pub just off the main road is attractively bedecked in ivy with plenty of attention paid to appearances. Inside, what was once a two room arrangement has been opened out into a long space, but still retaining a lot of the original wooden interiors including the vestiges of a partition wall halfway down (including frosted glass). Seating is solid wooden furniture on wooden floors, and there's more seating outside in a beer garden running the length of the building, with a separate entrance to the street.
The bar offers four handpulls for ale, with Adnam's Lighthouse (£3.80/pint), Doom Bar, Landlord and London Pride on offer on Ewan's May 2012 visit. They also have Pilsner Urquell (£2.50/half-pint), Peroni, Beck's Vier, Staropramen and Aspall's cider, amongst other more usual options. However, clearly the greatest attention has been paid to the wine menu, which runs to two tightly-packed sides on the laminated menu cards left on the tables, and is also prominently displayed on chalk boards around the bar area.
Food is served noon-12:30pm and 6pm-10pm Mondays to Fridays, noon-4pm and 6pm-10pm on Saturdays, and noon-10pm on Sundays. The menu looks to be packed out with gastropub-style options, with mains priced around £12-£15.
On a Wednesday evening visit, the place was nicely filled up both inside and out and clearly attracts plenty of local workers (as well as, one presumes, crowds when there is a show on at the nearby Earl's Court).
Child-friendliness: According to their website as of August 2012, children are only allowed in before 7pm.
Accessibility: One shallow step to get into the pub, but no steps to the beer garden entrance.
