|Pre-gastrofication, this place was fumbling for an identify. The furniture was all wrong, punters were scarce, and those who did drink there were too interested in the football. Then in 2013 the place was heavily refurbished: walls were knocked through, furnishings improved, and the menu became king.|
Drinking there now, I sometimes feel like I'm waiting to be seated, even at 9.00 on a Friday evening when all I want is a few quiet jars. One settles in eventually, although the redolence of the food served there – often fish – has been so strong on occasion that I have been forced to quickly leave.
Yet the service is generally good and the art-work hanging off the walls is a little more interesting than the stock rubbish you get in a lot of these more modern pubs, although they could do with dimming the lights; I suppose the customers need to see what they're eating... 6/10

|Did a revisit last Saturday and still to be recommended. |
4 hand pulls for Surrey Hill Sheer Drop, Sharps Cornish Coaster and Hop Back Summer Lightning.
I went for a pint of Harveys Best Bitter which was excellent and cost £3.70.

|I commented on this pub earlier in 2013, and am pleased to say the initial quality has been sustained, and its ongoing popularity seems to endorse this assessment. Good beer, very good food (possibly better than the nearby (dare we say it, now slightly tired) Brula (a notable local restaurant), and very pleasant atmosphere. Perfect for settling in, or just a passing by couple of pints. |
One slight quirk - they seem to serve a "quality street" with their Irish coffee - surely a pub of this calibre would make their own after dinner "choccy"!
But otherwise a welcome haven from the rigours of modern life, and a welcome improvement to the slightly gothic Tavern.

|They've certainly spent a few bob doing this place up, turning it into a very high class gaff. How the likes of bjbrummiejohn (see below) ever got through the front door, let alone being allowed to buy a drink, I cannot understand.|
I was in here on August Bank Holiday Monday and there were four very good real ales on - Harveys Sussex Best, Surrey Hills Shere Drop, Hogs Back TEA and Sharp's Cornish Coaster - priced at around £3.50/£3.60 per pint. Not cheap but this is the Twickenham/Richmond area after all. The two beers we tried - Harveys and Surrey Hills - were in very good condition.
As someone has already commented, the food is not cheap and I didn't try it but from what I saw it was excellently presented and there was a wide selection. The pub was very busy and a lot of food was being sold.
I look forward to going back to this pub.

|Pub re-opened after refurb. Service good, the creche aspect has gone, but 12 quid for a burger; I must be missing something!|
Good choice of bitters, I have to say and it does seem well run.
