|They had a couple of decent ales on when I dropped in, so to quote Janice Nicholls "Oi'll Give It Foive!". |

|There is simply no better place in London to watch the rugby, and I include Twickenham in that. Atmosphere during the Lions tour and Six Nations was amazing. Also pretty good for Arsenal games.|
Great beer Garden that gets a lot of sun on the top decks. Could do with better ale selection but the Guiness is warm enough and the Thai food is pretty good

|I absolutely love this place. Let's be honest though, the comparisons with the Old Dairy are slightly unfair. As it's an Irish pub I'd be more inclined to put it up against the Twelve Pins, for example. You don't come to the Fullback for ale, that's for sure. You come for the garden, the sport and the Thai food. I'm a big lover of the English juice, and in general I visit more real ale pubs, but when I'm after it and don't want to go far I go to the Dairy or the Brownswood. I don't come here.|
My most recent visit was yesterday, Lowenbräu was my choice. At £3.80 it's more than most ales but less than you pay for a lager in an ale pub these days. Had one in the garden before moving in to watch the football, and the room soon filled up with fans creating a lively atmosphere.
If you like live sport, cold lager and a lovely place to while away a few summer hours, the Fullback's your place. If you insist on well-kept real ale being served in every pub you enter, it's not.

|Interesting fact: the decking in the beer garden was modelled on the Ewok village.|

|For a pub that purports to be a rugby pub the Faltering Fullback is pretty disappointing as it insists on showing football! A large group of us arrived to watch the All Black v Scotland game on 11 Nov (having rung and checked beforehand that they would be showing the game) only to find football on and the bar tender not even remotely interested in showing the rugby. After several of us asking he reluctantly changed the chanel over but could not get the sound to work. Seriously, sort it out Faltering Fullback. It is Autumn Internationals time. There will be a lot of great rugby on over the next month and if you say you will show the games then show them complete with sound or we will go elsewhere! |
