Huge pub in a part of London that is very pleased with itself. You suspect this pub would have been a huge cavernous smoke-filled boozer a number of years ago. Now it is pricey and a parody of a gastro pub with the tick box inflated beer prices, indifferent bar staff and focus on food.

Went here on a Friday and paid £5.15 for a pint of Peroni, which is obscene. Even the bitters are £4 a pop. Just absurd.

Awful pub, very poncy and try-hard with inattentive staff. I've given it two chances already but I won't bother with a third - avoid.

Just ate here tonight. Well, It was shit. The food was passable but appeared like an after thought. Had the 'chefs special' Lamb hot-pot-stew-slow-roasted-seasonal blah. And it was tasty enough. In the way food cooked at home as a student was tasty. It looked like food my grandmother used to not-so-lovingly-prepare (shovel out) which would be amazing if it wasn't less 1/4 the serving size. My grandmother also never charged 13.90 mutherfucking pounds for the displeasure.
Honestly though, worse than the pitfall servings, the cavernous soulless australiananess, and the deafening christian R&B(listen closely if you dare) was the atrocious attitude of the staff serving. Despite spending well over 150 quid on a Gullivers travels version off grandmas tried and tested, my party was moved on for another booking like moroccan leather cattle. Pints were removed half drunk. When I was putting on my coat the twat waiter, as he was joining another table to ours deliberately rammed the table into my legs to indicate (just in case I was putting on my coat to order a second course of sub par tripe) that it was time to leave.

This joint sucks. It is so typically Clapham/Balham average town that even reviewing it seems like paying too much respect. Go anywhere but here. Go to the fucking Moon on the Water! 4 quid a pint too! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

P.S. Two of the serving bar staff, the short bloke with the moustache and the young attractive girl with massive hoolios were very polite and deserve to work somewhere better than this dump.

Ran out of Heineken for the 5 weekend in a row. A pub with no beer is a lounge room. Sort it out. And start serving decent food while your at it. And would you mind serving me when I walk to the bar please. Thanks.
