Handy for the station and usually busy. I'm not giving it more than 6/10 though because it keeps advertising itself based on an astonishing selection of ales, but it's no use if most of them are on.

18 were advertised last night, but only I think 6 or 7 actually on (most of those standards - Doom Bar, Pride, Tribute etc.). I thought the quality of the beer was indifferent as well as did the people I was with. Not bad, but indifferent. 6/10.

An astonishing selection of real ales. A splendid looking pub.

But last couple of times I've been in the quality of the beers have been very below par. Too much flotsam floating in the ales!

Also the staff could do with cheating up somewhat and treating customers as guests rather than somewhat unwanted visitors.

Yes bit of a surprise having all the beeries herded into one bar. I did find one superb ale from Great Heck in excellent condition. I only use this pub as a pop in and have one or two beers between changing trains at Clapham Junction and for that it is still a very reliable hostelry.

On the plus side it's v close to Clapham Junction station with a vast range of ales, tasty food and friendly service. On the minus side it's a victim of its own success: v busy & noisy and it can take a long time to get served (though the staff are all doing their best). The worst thing, that they really need to sort out, is that about 3 out of 4 items on the food menu are unavailable but they don't tell you which ones till after you've ordered!

I was very disappointed with the effects of the refurbishment ale-wise, certainly, and this pub has looked very good in recent years, but pandering to food has messed up the bar towards the rear of the pub, and means less real ales now!

They used to have up to 20 real ales on at any one time, now there are just a maximum of 16 handpumps, and 8 of those weren't being used last night, and 2 of those being used were for cider, so just 6 ales on offer! Bit of a comedown...

I do have to say that the Purity 'Ubu' was in good nick though, so at least quality doesn't appear to have been effected yet...

Very sad, as a youngster I would never come in here, too rough and full of old men, now I'm an older man I'm not as happy with the place as I was over the last few years,bad decision Nicholsons, I shall be letting you know direct.
