Large Young's pub that was showing the football on a Saturday teatime so was worth a stop for a few pints. Busy inside with most people watching the 2 games on the screens, there was also several families with young children.

Long straight bar that has 5 hand pumps, 3 ales on I had several pints of Hop Stuff’s Pale Ale, a nice pint poured and kept well. Better than the pint of Wandle I had on a previous visit.

Even though it was busy we managed to bag a table to settle and watch the match.

Modern interior and as previously mentioned used to be the local post office.

Good suburban boozer - a real contrast to the decidedly rural village-y Running Horses round the corner. The building is a former post office - big, spacious, high ceilings. The vibe is somewhat akin to the nicer urban Wetherspoons, but it's smarter, cleaner and inhabited by - dare I say it - a better class of drinker. In the early evenings it's mayhem, loud and bustling, but can get pretty quiet after 10pm. Decent range of beers, just the one cider on tap (Aspall), but a really good range of whiskies. Dropped in late one night after a session in the Running Horses and had a luscious Laphroig - mmm, I can still taste it now... decor is smart and the walls are covered in interesting historic photos and maps of the local area. Haven't tried the food yet and disappointing that such a busy pub only manages one draught cider, given the wide range of beers available (I probably shouldn't say this here, but I can't stand beer - tried various assuredly quality ales in many pubs and hated them all!), but every landlord tells me the same story, no market for more cider here...

When I posted back in Oct 2009 I had a bit of a downer on this pub and Leatherhead in general. I am more than pleased to reconsider these statements that I made as I have made a number of visits to the town recently.

Yes, the pub is still fairly quiet and fairly pricey but at least someone seems to be having a go at getting this place up and running. There are a couple of TVs showing sport, the beer quality has improved and staff seem very pleasant. They also had a promo recently during the Olympics and when a gold medal was won by a Brit the price of beer went down to �2.12 for half an hour after the success. So thank you very much Ben Ainslie for me to enjoy a pint at these very agreeable rates! Do they have the same promo for the Paralympics?!?

Much better and will make return visits.

PS. I did think the promo was exclusive to here but it also applied to the Boathouse in Putney.

Popped in for a couple of pints at lunchtime. Very overpriced. 2 pints of Krony and a pint of bitter come to �11.20, where it's less than a tenner in my local in Hampshire. Real ale is typical for a Youngs pub, although the Tribute that was on was superb. Won't be coming back though until I win the lottery or get hired by Lord Sugar.
