The refurbishment is a GOOD thing for the run-down area. It's quite English and makes a point of it, if you see what I mean, but does it better than any number of token St George's flags can do.
I've only been past, not even in although I hear good reports, and it bothers making an effort for its admittedly high prices and indeed 'yuppie' vibe. Some obnoxious self-satisfied 'yuppie' places definitely don't, so this is a good thing in this case (and I'm sceptical as hell when it comes to a bad vibe or pretentiousness!)
They even bother putting a herb box out the front which some utterly pathetic specimen decided to uproot one night, in jealousy, it seems. Tooting doesn't have to be a hole, shame some people don't get that. Sour grapes from the Paddy poster before.

There's a great Irish pub down the road that does everything right (The Ramble Inn) and they're not going anywhere any time soon, don't worry...

Bollocks. Hate it. Flat beer. What more can I say apart from don't waste your time unless you want to be given dirty looks by a load of yuppies, wait for 20 to be served because the barmaids are on the phone or messing about with each other and to sit at tables with other people's dirty glasses on them because no one was collecting them. Whoever took over this pub for it's refurb has destroyed it.

I visited this pub recently it was serving McEwan's Major (ABV 4.4%), a blast from the past to see McEwan's on draft. Good little pub, it's been refurbished and is now a Charles Wells pub, it also has a cinema in the basement and a garden area at the back. Worth a visit.

Recently underwent complete refurbishment from "bog standard London boozer" mentioned below to thriving gastro, more akin to the Antelope up the road.

Possible highlights include a small cinema in the basement which has apparently been used to show 'Prometheus' this weekend, a nice selection of decent ales on tap and a pleasant, welcoming demeanour on behalf of all the staff I've met so far.

I live approx. five minutes walk away and have peeked in every now and then after the refurb to see if it's a goer. So far so good - always a few in in the afternoon including (shock horror) unaccompanied single young females and busy at night. This pub might well become my local so I'll declare my interest in it has appreciated and I am well on my way to becoming a regular.

Traditional Youngs local near to Tooting mainline station. The pub was open early yesterday morning to show the Welsh rugby. After waiting for the barman/landlord to return from the shop, I finally got served. Young's Bitter or Special were the only ale choices. The front bar is decorated with a red colour scheme and was also kitted out for Halloween. I didn't get to see the rear bar. Live music & Sunday lunch were advertised. Nothing particularly special, just a bog standard London boozer.
