Good Beer Guide pub in South Wimbledon, serving a range of real ales.
The pub is quite small but you can usually find a table. It's normally busy with locals. It's a very friendly place; even when Kake and Ewan took a largish group there in January 2008 there was no grumpiness about us colonising half the pub, and several people said goodbye to us when we left. We'd have stayed longer if we hadn't been worried about taking up so much space (it really is tiny).
Gale's HSB is often on. On our January 2008 visit the beers available were HSB, Swordfish, Westerham's Black Eagle SPA, and Westerham's Puddledock Porter.
Lunch is served on weekdays, and there is a quiz on Thursday nights. A jazz band plays there between 2:30pm and 5:30pm on Sunday afternoons (free entry). The "What's On" on their website seems to be kept regularly updated.
They can also arrange 20 litre polypins of beer to take away, given sufficient notice.
