Somewhat surprised to see that no-one has mentioned it's now named the Alexander Pope [not that BITE would have taken any notice].

Never been here before yesterday but found it functional, lady behind the bar polite, the Special perfectly OK.

Suited its purpose drinkwise, but not a pub I would rush back to.

I notice that neither EmilyBright 123 or Nicholas7 have posted about any other pub anywhere since their little shills for this one. Quel surprise!

Went back in this pub after years. ironically, what annoyed me the last time I went in this pub was the fact that a decent old boozer had been refitted to look like a hotel.

Now it has been refitted again it seems, and I have to confess it seemed a bit better than I remember - let's not pretend though that the old pub was some sort of old world ye tavern, the refit before was crap, this one has just made it a bit nicer.

I'd like to visit again as this looked like an appealing place to spend an afternoon

The cretin that dreamed up this unnecessary renovation ought to be ASBOed.
Very anti-social
A monstrousity, like the worst excesses of modern Japanese public architecture.
And as if the last incarnation wasn't bad enough!
Just an excuse to put prices up yet again.
No wonder the proper boozers with character around the green are getting all the local trade from the Cross Deep/Tower Road end of TW1.

We always used to joke that Youngs were famous for their pub "moderations" but this is the most radical that i've seen. The glass box has opened the pub up considerably. So much so that we might end up feeling claustrophobic in traditional boozers. The practical outcomes are more tables to eat and drink at which has to be better doesn't it? Kew Gold - on tap - was bit bland on the day. Special better.
