Is this actually a pub, or a mini Cargo homestore that happens to have a bar in the middle?

Plus points: original decor, clean and bright, exterior building looks great

On the down side, the barmaid didn't appear to know what Southern Comfort was until we pointed at it.

Looks like it might be a decent restaurant, but I'd say the jury's out as to whether this really qualifies as a pub at all...

This is certainly more a restaurant than a pub. There are a couple of hand pumps on the bar that have been polished to death and look very good, it’s just a shame that nothing comes out of them. Amstel, Kronenburg, Budweiser and Guinness are all available on draught, but as I fancied an ale I opted for a Coke rather than walking straight out. I was a little surprised at being charged £1.95 for a half. At £3.90 a pint, the urine was royally extracted from this mug!

As a restaurant the place has a bright airy feel and the latino type music in the background gave a relaxed chilled out atmosphere. I liked it and if I was in the area with the wife I’d pop in for a bite to eat as the food smelt good and the waitress/barmaid was very friendly.

If this was a restaurant review site this place would be getting a great rating from me, but unfortunately it isn't.

This is probably one of the most “good value” for money pub/restaurants in South West London.

Carla and Raymond working the bar and floor are always ready to welcome you with a warm and genuine smile and even when very busy ( which is most days ) they are always very helpful and friendly and will do their best to find you a table.

Food is always of a first class standard and one of the few restaurants where if you ask for your meat to be rare it is cooked correctly. Good size portions and innovative menu which changes daily.

Highly recommended and well worth a visit

We went for Sunday lunch - we were the only people in there at 1pm (although it was a BH weekend). My wife asked for cider and was brought IPA by a waitress who insisted IPA was a cider. We sent this back and, because the only actual cider available was the dreaded Bulmers (the range of beer and cider was poor, at least on tap), ordered a white wine spritzer. This also went undrunk because it tasted like anti-freeze: it was either corked, old or ultra-cheap wine. The waitress giggled when we told her and didn't offer to replace it (admittedly we should have insisted). To eat, we had some small olives swimming in lemony oil, some bread which was clearly supermarket baguette warmed up, and then the tapas. Our waitress said the portions were small but, for tapas, they were huge, meaning we overordered. Everything we got was greasy and tasteless. We got the bill and found they'd tried to charge us for the IPA! Overall: a disaster, in terms of food, drink and service. Mortlake doesn't have many good pubs to eat in so it's well worth the trip to the Botanist in Kew, the Sun in Barnes or the Victoria in Sheen.
