Well worth seeking out. The road itself is an oasis of calm from the hoardes milling around Waterloo Station. Lovely little terraced houses.

The pub is very traditional on the street corner. Inside, through a door marked Saloon, is all wood paneling and traditional pub furnture. A central bar has four real ales on each side and the only way to find out appears to be to ask - and this caused general panic and confusion with the bar worker. Of the 8 beers, I picked up on a familar XT 3 - which was in fine condition.

Around the back is a lovely conservatory set aside for Thai Dining.

Lovely pub - best in the area?

Unspoiled backstreet pub within easy walking distance of Waterloo and Waterloo East stations, despite being in a wonderful residential terraced street. There are 2 front bars and a larger rear space. Ale selection was a little disappointing on our last visit in November - Truman's Swift & Zephyr, Notting Hill Blonde, Ruby Rye & Amber, Butcombe Bitter, Gun Extra Pale, Adnams Bitter, Sharp's Ale of Kings, Dark Star Hophead & Kent Black Gold. A fair few ales, but I prefer a mild, porter or stout. No real cider either. Hoping for a more diverse range next time. But unlike the pub, maybe I am getting spoilt.

Old fashioned corner pub with the bar divided into two parts. Eight different real ales available, four in each half of the pub. Have to say that apart from the Wadworth 6X I didn't recognise the beers.
Unfortunately due to time I could only stay for the one. Will definitely visit this place again!
One word of caution though. It gets very busy! On my visit I it was still early in the evening and there were people all over the pavement. (Not in an overly inebriated way!)

Lovely traditional boozer that had real fires burning on both sides of the bar when we went in last week. Didn't try the Thai food but there was a very good selection of ales, most of which were very good. I couldn't see a list of ales anywhere though so you have to have a wander round to the other side to see what is available on the hand-pumps there.
Was very busy when we were there but the bar staff were still managing to serve everyone quickly with little waiting. Very nice place.

Excellent free house in a time warp street a few minutes walk of Waterloo station. 8 real ales on, all from small micros and the three we had were on good form.
