I wish BITE would remove the blurry crappy main first photo. Its way outdated now, looks completely different, and is soooo yesterday.

The Mansion House, Kennington

[Reopened NOT CLOSED]
Being local, this has to be my favourite pub of all time for the memories and good times spent in here.

Closed for six years, disappointingly I thought never to be reopened as a pub again. But as recently as three weeks ago I noticed it had been opened, and almost as if it had sprung-up overnight, I had no idea!

It has been massively refurbished, literally from scratch. It has a large multi-wood panelled window front, with central entrance doors that lead towards a beautiful long bar that houses pumps for quality handcrafted real ale's of various strengths, popular well known branded beers, lagers and ciders. My personal favourite is the Krombacher Weizen - a wheat beer.

The interior design is in keeping with pleasant upmarket bars elsewhere in London

The new Oaka at Mansion House also has a restaurant/dining area that serves Pan Asian Cuisine ~ Thai Curry dishes with rice and much more on their menu.
The food incidentally was excellent, albeit modestly portioned, and a bit on the expensive side for what you get. However, that is my only criticism of the wonderful new Mansion House, and comes highly recommended by myself.

I have uploaded some images of the modern Oaka at The Mansion House, as pictures say more than words

Nice pub, shame no wheat beer on draught. The food was good and reasonably priced.

The bar staff are nice and friendly apart from the young female prat behind the bar that is a bit too far up her own backside that likes to think she kind of runs things here. Known the pub for years and never known such a stuck up prat.

That aside, its pleasant enough.

Would have given at least 7 if not for the aforementioned individual.

Will come back and post an update when she leaves to make room for the needed improvement.
