I was the first customer in here yesterday morning. It's quite a large pub with a number of different seating area. I chose to watch the world go by in the front window. This is supposed to be the oldest pub in the town. But it does now have a modern feel. As previous reviewers have said, there is a decent range of ales despite this being a Greene King pub. IPA & Abbot are the regular beers. But there were also 6 guests - Twickenham Autumn Red, Cottage Red and Ruth & Honey Bunny, Ascot Alligator Ale, Everards Tiger & Red Squirrel Hopfest. My only criticism would be that there were no milds, stouts or porters. I tried the Red and Ruth, which was a ruby ale, but too hoppy for my palate.

Reopened.

Nothing major in the refurbishment, as far as I can see.

But still a pleasant boozer, on the Market Place in the town centre.

I visited the Druids a week or a so ago before going to the Suede gig that was being hosted in the Hippodrome (formerly works nightclub) and I was impressed to the extent my rating has increased by two points.

This is pretty much based on the beer range. A nice selection of real ales including the wonderful Abbott Vintage ale. I wasn't up for getting too plastered so didn't opt for it as at 6.4% it is probably one to drink when you haven't got anything to do the following day.

I did however, go for a couple of pints of American Red IPA from the Squirrel brewery which at 5.9% did pack a bit of a punch! It is nice to have a choice of strengths though as a lot of pubs only seem to offer session ales which appeal more to old farts who have got the time to sit in a pub for hours on end sipping pint after pint of low strength beer.

This place now has IMHO the best beer range of any of the town centre pubs except maybe the spoons however, if you do not want the spoons (lack of) atmosphere then this is definitely the place to go!

I travel some way to get to this pub simply because there is a dearth of civilised watering holes in London. By civilised I mean no children or TV. Although there is the usual caterwauling female coming from loudspeakers in the main bar, there is a snug bar without speakers ( who needs them?) in which the noise is insufficient to be an insult to the intelligence. Avoid at all costs on a Friday night when, presumably to attract the teenage element, the speakers are going full blast with the kind of noise that one might encounter darkest Africa.
Wetherspoons have a speakerless pub in Kingston but as with all their establishments, it's full of old plonkers rhubarbing away as the Fosters takes hold.
