Pub in [[Locale Kingston|Kingston]].

The U-shaped interior is wrapped around the bar, opening out at each end. Seating consists of upholstered banquettes around the side walls, flanked by varnished tables, chairs, and low stools. At each side, the banquettes curve back into bay window seats, lit by sunlight through dimpled glass. The ceiling is covered with old pump clips, and a selection of brewery-branded clocks sits above the open fireplace. Rugby memorabilia is here and there, and the backs of the bar stools are carved with stylised rugby balls.

When [[bob]] visited on a Monday afternoon in February 2008, the beers available were Badger Hopping Hare (£3.25/pint), London Pride, Landlord, Ruddles, Young's Bitter, and Harvey's Sussex Best. [[Northern Steve]] visited in November 2008 and had an acceptable London Pride (£3.20/pint), but neglected to note the other beers on.

[[Kake]] and Shuri visited on a Wednesday afternoon in March 2016. There were three or four other customers in when we arrived around 3:30pm, having a lively conversation with the staff member on duty. Cricket was showing on the flatscreens, with the sound down low.

The handpumps were clipped for Windsor & Eton Knight of the Garter, Belhaven Grand Slam, Young's Bitter, Binghams Rucking Ale (£2.10/half), Greene King IPA Reserve, and London Pride. A half of lime and soda was £1.

They don't appear to do any food other than the clingfilm-wrapped filled rolls behind the bar, all at £2.40 each as of March 2016. Although this is significantly over the usual price for a filled roll in a
pub, the one we tried (ham, tomato, and wholegrain mustard) was worth the price, with good-quality ingredients and plenty of mustard.

[[Kake]]'s verdict: A locals' pub, but a friendly one (one of the other customers said hello to us when we arrived and goodbye when we left, both times unprompted by us). For me, though, the [[Willoughby Arms, KT2 6LN|Willoughby Arms]] just has the edge on it.

Dog-friendliness: There was a large dog wandering around inside during our visit, and they have a water dispenser and dog bowl outside just by the door.

Child-friendliness: A sign seen in March 2016 warned that children are not permitted inside after 6pm.

Accessibility: A step to the front patio, and two more steps to get in. No steps to the ladies', but access is narrow.
