Yes, this is a locals pub and if you're not a local, as with all "locals" pubs you will feel slightly out of place initially.
The layout is quirky, however, there is no need to go through the gents toilets to get to the back bar, use the back bar side door!
There is a diverse mix of patrons, this is Pimlico not Belgravia. The bar staff are friendly and the beer is good enough.

|Like something from a Dickensian slum. Back bar full of homeless hostel dwellers so the atmosphere rather strange. |

|Another Pimlico pub, I walked in and walked straight out of. Chavs, football hooligans waiting for West Ham's ICF to turn the place over. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE, Pull the place down for redevelopment|

|Not recommended unless you're a fan of Greene King IPA or want to join the locals in some serious-looking card games. The connection between front and back bars is via the gents - most odd.|

|Walked into the Surprise, only to discover Greene King IPA as the sole draught ale, and a mother (presumably) and her three small children and pushchair taking up the large sofa right by the bar. Made my excuses and left.|
Probably does a very good job for the locals, but not for anyone else.
