One of Wimbledon`s nicer pubs - unpretentious, nice ambience, drink and food well served, prices reasonable and pleasant staff. Clean toilets and a small smoking area at the rear. Well situated for Wimbledon station, shops etc - would certainly recommend it.

One of the better pubs in Wimbledon, the atmosphere is usually good in here and it feels like you are in a pub rather than some faked attempts that seem to clutter high streets these days.
The prices here are fair and I've found the service pretty good. It doesn't tend to get too busy so you're never waiting too long.

Overall a pub worth a visit

I have to agree with the comments made by Mcloj. This pub has a brilliant location, pleasant ambience, the staff are friendly and the prices are very competitive but the ale is woefully bad. My friend and I opted for the Hooky today and had to leave half of it because it tasted vile. If you're a real ale drinker then you're in much safer hands at the Alex next door although you do pay quite a premium for guest ales.

Great location for a boozer - splendid selection of about 4 different ales but the quality isn't the same as next door at The Alex. The boozer is nice and laid out well and has decent punters that support the place - I've even had the food in the place and thats not bad at all - it's just the standard and quality of the beer isn't as good as the next door neighbour and even though my work mates prefer this place - it just grates me that a stones throw away I can sink cracking larrup with a beavy of well presented bar girlies. On saying that, I'd rather drink here than most other places on the Wim. Broadway where an attack from the Death Star can't come quick enough. I'd rather eat hay with a horse than supp the crap that they put out or mix with the pounces that frequent down there.
