Good selection of lagers on tap at prices that are readily becoming the standard in Balham, not that that's a good thing but there you go. Bar staff are efficient if not overly friendly. The inside is a little cramped on a Friday night and, whilst it is nice to sit outside, I don't think the European cafe culture style outside seating works so well with the jobcentre being the main view. Though you can't really blame the bar for that. A decent bar in all and worth a visit.

Pretty good bar. Never overly busy and and, generally, a good crowd. Although I don't venture in there too often I ate there a few weeks ago and was very satisfied with the food, which is a break from the norm. The drinks prices are, perhaps, slightly more than what they should be but certainly not the most expensive in Balham.

A rude barman ruined our night in there - we had bought 2/3 rounds of drinks and he proceeded to be antagonistic and rude and kept the door open on a night it was snowing ... would not go again and would recommend you don't... while he works there.

Agree about the awful wine, I complained it and was given an equally horrible glass of wine.

A shame it has the potential to be nice and the bar staff are friendly.

Standard depository for the Balham glitterati... Good cocktail mixing skills by staff but lacks soul. At least you can sit outside though and look at Irene House (the dole office).
