This pub is one of the most beautiful in the area, with a traditional feel and incredibly welcoming staff.

We recently held one of our charity fundraisers at The PT and nothing was too much trouble for the team - they were organised, conscientious and kept smiling on what was a busy and very warm night!

The venue itself is decorated with wood pannelling, which makes for a rustic, old school feel. Both gardens (front and back) are well-kept, with an undercover area for when it gets too hot (so rarely in London!). There's plenty of seating and it seems like they're fairly busy as there's often reservation signs on the tables.

The food is just what you'd expect - good, honest pub food. Perhaps the menu could be a little more inventive but at least you know what you're getting. This summer's additions of salads and more seasonal dishes was a welcome change, though their burgers and pizzas are still delicious.

Definitely one of my local favourites, and perfect for functions and the not so occasional glass of wine!

Have occasionally (a few times a month) popped in over the last 2 years. Best pub in the immediate area (that means Garratt Lane, Merton Road, Southfields tube vicinity, Wandsworth High Street) - if you want something better, then go to Putney, Clapham Junction or N. of Armoury Way.

They have: Symonds Cider (£4.05 I think); Wadsworth 6X; occasionally a 'Walk in the Park' ale and then a guest (nothing too exotic). Well-kept. Has a website (for lager listings).

Best bit of the pub is the large rear beer garden. Gets the early afternoon sun (depending on time of year) and I've always got a seat there. More outdoor seating at the front of the pub by the busy Merton Road.

Only eaten a pizza here and it was fine and reasonably priced (that means a margerita for £6-something). About half the indoors looks like it's primarily for eating but they don't seem to be too worried about 'eating only' (I'm thinking of The Falcon at C.J.). Interior relatively tarted up (but not absurdly so)with leather sofas, flagged floors and wainscot. Somewhere for family or (most) friends.

Staff fine (but impervious to subtle banter). Good quiz night on Wednesday. I think they have special meal deal days.

Not primarily a sports pub but they do show some events (Six Nations at least).

Doesn't get annoying busy on Friday/Saturday nights.

Overall - good pub for a few pints.

Have lived c. 500 yards from this place for over 2 years and never been in. Visited this evening after seeing it positively rated on BITE. Got a friendly hello from behind the bar as we walked in, there's a selection of interesting beers on tap, great wood panelled bar with leather sofas everywhere, and tasty food. Will definitely be back, especially if they get the fires going in the winter...

Great pub - Not sure it's top 5 in the country but nice range of continental lagers and 3 well kept ales. Food excellent and reasonably priced. Nice garden and fireplaces. Will be back.

Great old school boozer. Nice inside and out. Great choice of lagers including Tiger and beer including Wadsworth 6X - love it.
