|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. |

|I have been here before and had well kept ale. But, last night I had to return a murky Adnams which should never have been passed to a customer and the next pint of some insipid mildly hoppy thing was very average. Too many ales being served in the hot weather.|

|The street outside will probably look very familiar as it Is used in so many T.V. period dramas such as Call the Midwife etc etc. The Pub is somewhat gentrified,the beer range seems to be LocaLEs ,Hop Stuff,Wimbledon for example. A fairly small place with an attractive back bar used as a restaurant.Press cuttings ,photos of some of the actors/production staff adorn the walls relating to the streets role in various dramas, look at the period window frames of the houses,they look like bits from orange boxes and infer post war make do and mend.|

|Thursday evening with a friend in the Waterloo area and I chose one of my favourite pubs in London…The Kings Arms.|
7pm and the pub is heaving already both inside and outside. We go to the smaller bar with it’s 3 hand pumps with the other 6 being through in the main bar.
9 ales on in total that changed while I was here so I started on the Truman Bold as Brass @ 4.2% being moving onto Bexley Breweries Golden Acre @ 4.0%. Both pints perfectly kept and poured. In addition there are a couple of keg beers and “fancy” lagers.
During my last visit I don’t recall there being Thai food available in the back room. This was a bonus as we were planning on moving to a local curry house for food so plans were changed and we treated ourselves to the good value & authentic food.
We left around 10.15pm and the pub was still very busy. Great pub, cracking selection of ales, quick and friendly service, a little on the pricey side but this is a trendy part of London now. The Kings Arms is a must visit.
