Historical version 7 of Selkirk, SW17 0ES (view current version)

A lively and comfortable pub near Tooting Broadway Station, just off the main road.

This is a large place with several rooms which has been refitted in a sensitive way, with plenty of wooden pews and tables. There are two large rooms inside, with the bar stretching between them, as well as smaller side room with couches and bookshelves which would seat about six to eight people. There's a sizable conservatory area at the end of the bar leading to a very large beer garden area, with plenty of tables for seating and popular in the warm summer evenings.

Although this is largely a residential backstreets pub, it's also near a large hospital and offers 10% discounts to NHS staff before 9pm on drinks and food, so it has an eye to serving its neighbourhood. On Ewan's Wednesday evening visit, the place had plenty of customers, but being so big, still had lots of space for seating.

The bar has two handpulls for ale, serving Tribute and Wandle on a May 2009 visit. They also have draught Staropramen, Hoegaarden, Addlestone's cider, and other familiars.

Food is served noon-3pm and 5pm-10pm Monday to Thursday, and noon-10pm Friday to Sunday, and there's a special on burgers on Mondays (two burgers for £10). The menu itself covers the usuals but with some more interesting choices as well, and appears to change on a regular basis photo of menu in May 2009. We didn't sample the food on our visit, however. They also have plenty of bar snacks photo of bar snacks menu

They advertise a Thursday pub quiz, free entry. Comedy is held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month. There's also a poor bar billiards table opposite the bar.

bob visited on a Thursday night in August 2010. There were several tables reserved one assumes for the pub quiz. They had Sambrook's Wandle and Junction on. The Junction was very drinkable. The menu is very gastro pubbyphoto,photo
