The Wibbas Down Inn, Wimbledon

Large, above average, (for real ale choice and quality), Wetherspoons, with 2 separate bars at either entrance.

Visited during the Autumn beer festival and found 18 real ales on handpump, and all the ones we tried were in good nick. Since then we have been back several times and the range and quality is generally very good, (one minor quibble is that the ales on the 'main' bar are a bit too cold at times).

Trafalgar Freehouse, South Wimbledon

Cosy free house with 6 real ales always on and live music on Saturday evening, ( an impressive Frank Sinatra tribute act on our visit) , and Sunday lunchtime. The beer range is usually Dark Star Hophead plus 4 other guests (2.80) and a specially brewed house beer called Market Ale from Ascot Ales (2.60). The Hophead and Market were very good, with the Market popular with the locals. They also had Riegele German lager on tap and in bottles, which weren't tried, but were nice to see.

Although it's a bit of a trek from Wimbledon town centre, (it's not too far from the Sultan, so a visit to both makes sense), it is fairly close to South Wimbledon tube station. As has been stated below, it is very small, making it very busy on the Saturday evening we visited and a bit awkward to get through the crowd to the toilet and back, but all in all this pub is one to visit if you are a real ale fan.
