Going downhill.
Number of active handpumps reducing, quality of kept beer falling. Sunny evenings and it is no longer packed, so customers are noticing and voting with their feet. Attracting a different type of customer now, partially encouraged by the equal opportunity employment policy with 6 out of 6 members of staff being young ladies the last time I visited, so slightly more tattooed lager swilling blokes now sitting round the bar.
If you preferred it the way it was, the way it transformed itself and became a success, then walk ten mins to the Rifleman.

Nearly confusing in its architecture but this is a cosy real ale-focussed pub which is a sister gig to the Antelope in Surbiton - whence cometh my beer, in this case Big Smoke Electric Eye. Tiling and the rest of it is a decorative marvel although I was quite content to sit on the leather counches and have my beer while people wandered in over the long afternoon in the part of Twickenham that is away from the centre with its 'spoons and for all I know Arsenal fans. The bar staff are a double act. There was a dog which was made a fuss of by everyone. This is good for in a bad pub the dog makes threatening gestures at you instead, and that on this particular afternoon was only the purlieu of a gentleman (I use the term very loosely) near the Goat who made monkey gestures at me to force me off the pavement. When I reached the Sussex Arms I found what I had suspected, that not everypony in Twickenham is aggressive and some are actually knowledgeable about the beer.

Great selection of beers, even the lagers are esoteric. Good atmosphere and charming cosy decor. However, let down by frequently filthy glasses and bar staff who, although perfectly pleasant, habitually serve the closest person to them on finishing with another customer leaving those who may have been standing at the bar for far longer (but are less vocal) ignored. Annoying in a pub which otherwise deserves to be busy for its plus points. The music played is a great mix of genres but why on earth during a quiet mid-week the owner frequently feels an urge to turn it up to conversation drowning levels in the back room when people were sitting there because it's a good place to have a chat is beyond me. A decent enough pub which could be great but frustratingly let down by faults which would be easy to fix if the owners cared to do so.

Friendly pub with very, very impressive range of ales (local and from far away) and ciders on hand-pumps. Wide range of hot food options including their famous pies which are to die for! The toilets aren't great, but the main whinge would be that there are lots of small round tables and high stools but nothing that's ideal for eating at!

Great variety of real ales but neither I, nor my wife or sister could find one that we actually liked! We only go in occasionally but the ales change and taste different each time. Do not seem to have a basic well-known/liked beer. Nice pub but not one I could spend a whole evening in. Great if you like tasting new and unusual beers or ciders and a vast improvement on what it was like years ago.
