Devonshire, SW12 9AN

Young's pub in Balham.

It was refurbished in early 2008; before that it was a perfectly ordinary, perfectly decent local pub. Now, however, it has trendy furniture and loud music.

On DrHyde's March 2008 visit, service at the bar was very quick despite the place being busy, and the Young's Special was well kept but at £3.45 it was bloody expensive. Food looked OK but nothing special.

As of October 2016, food is served noon-10pm Mon-Sat and noon-9pm Sun.

DrHyde's verdict: It would probably count as a very good venue if what you're after is a bar. But I was after a pub, not a bar, so it was merely tolerable.
