It has two floors, with the upstairs apparently being reserved for diners. There is a nice conservatory at the back of the ground floor. There's also a raised seating area opposite the bar with a few tables, which gets less busy than the front of the pub (where new arrivals tend to congregate). The decor is clean and modern. Sections of the pub can be booked for no charge, including both the conservatory and the raised area opposite the bar.

Real ales we've seen here include Young's Ordinary, Waggledance (in season), Bombardier, and Deuchars IPA; and have been judged by [[bob]] to be "tasty" (as of May 2007, at least). The regular range of lagers includes Staropramen and Peroni.

== Line 6 == == Line 8 ==
When [[Northern Steve]] and Amy visited in April 2018, the ales available were Young's Ordinary and Special, Twickenham Naked Ladies, and Hammerton N1. Although on a visit a decade previously (May 2007) [[bob]] had judged the ale quality as "tasty", on this occasion [[Northern Steve]] was unimpressed by the N1, as it didn't seem well kept. Other ales we've seen here in the past include Young's Waggledance, Bombardier, and Deuchars IPA, as well as Staropramen and Peroni lagers.
Service on all our visits has been efficient and friendly, despite the pub being very busy on occasion.

On a May 2007 visit, [[bob]]'s steak (&pound;10.75) was a touch tough and slightly overcooked, though [[Martin]] had no complaints about his burger (&pound;8.25). On a March 2010 visit, [[Ewan]] had a venison burger (around &pound;9), which was acceptable if nothing particularly special, and served with some decent chips.

Young's pub on the South Bank, opposite the ITV studios and just along the road from BFI Southbank.

It has two floors, with the upstairs being reserved for diners it would seem. There is a nice conservatory at the back of the ground floor. There's also a raised seating area opposite the bar with a few tables, which gets less busy than the front of the pub (where new arrivals tend to congregate). The decor is clean and modern. Sections of the pub can be booked for no charge, including both the conservatory and the raised area opposite the bar.

Real ales we've seen here include Young's Ordinary, Waggledance (in season), Bombardier, and Deuchars IPA; and have been judged by bob to be "tasty" (as of May 2007, at least). The regular range of lagers includes Staropramen and Peroni.

When bob and Martin visited on a Thursday evening in May 2007 the place was quite busy in general, though the number of people waxed and waned over the evening, probably due to the timing of performances in the surrounding venues. It's worth noting that even when the front was standing room only (and on occasions barely even that), there was always a lot more space towards the back and in the conservatory (even to the extent that there would be people standing at the front when there were free tables and seats in the conservatory). On a sunny Saturday visit by Ewan in August 2008, again the front was more crowded than the rear, where tables were available.

Service on all our visits has been efficient and friendly, despite the pub being very busy on occasion.

Food is served 11am-9pm Monday to Wednesday, 9am-9pm Thursday and Friday, and midday-9pm Saturday and Sunday. The food is OK, with a similar range to other Young's pubs photo of the menu as of May 2008. On a May 2007 visit, bob's steak (£10.75) was a touch tough and slightly overcooked, though Martin had no complaints about his burger (£8.25). On a March 2010 visit, Ewan had a venison burger (around £9), which was acceptable if nothing particularly special, and served with some decent chips.

Accessibility: The main toilets are down in the basement, but there's a disabled toilet on the ground floor as well.

Northern Steve and Amy visited in April 2018. They had ordinary, special, naked ladies and N1. Steve had the N1 and wasnít impressed, as it didnít seem well kept. Food seems substantially more expensive than the visits above, with the burger now £13.50 and the steak £24. Despite plans to eat here, we decided to move on and eat elsewhere.
