The Dog and Fox, Wimbledon Village

This pub seems to be more of a warehouse for fashionable rich kids rather than a proper pub. There is almost nothing in the way of atmosphere or welcome, and walking to the bar can feel more like an inspection of your class and attire than anything else. I live very close to this pub, but as I don't look like your average Wimbledon Village 20something Fashionista (I have a couple of visible tattoos and a lip ring) I feel unwelcome. It is far too expensive for what it has to offer, and you can get a much better meal, pint and service down at the Rose&Crown. I'll go and spend my money across the road at a real pub, thanks very much.

O'Neills, Wimbledon

I like this place. I'm not really a fan of chain pubs, but this particular O'Neill's is a very nice place to go for an affordable (and edible) lunch in a nice atmosphere. The staff are so friendly, I always feel welcome. A few months ago I might have made some comments about the decor and the standard of the toilets, but they redecorated recently and now there is very little I could gripe about, other than how busy it gets Friday and Saturday nights - but I can't fault them for being popular really, can I?

The Alexandra, Wimbledon

I have to agree with TTTAT - since the Alex reopened its like a completely different place. The roof terrace is stylish and they've opened up the bar so you don't have to carry rounds up the stairs. The traditional pub bit still has an old fashioned charm, but is much cleaner and fresher and the bar looks much better. Also, the moody staff seem to like the changes too - they actually seem like they want to be there and like their jobs, whereas before they all looked like they'd given up on life... Yeah, the prices are often complained about, but its actually not that much more expensive than most of the pubs in Wimbledon. The food is pretty good too. So much better!
