user reviews of the Pavilion, Battersea

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This pub looks good from the outside � but looks can deceive. It�s had a paint job since the photograph at Image 1 was taken � Image 2 (when it appears) is how it looks now. This is a plain, unremarkable one-room pub, with some pretty basic tables and chairs round the sides. The room seems to be dominated either by the large TV screen in the centre of the side wall, which was blaring out some loud rock music when I was in, or the stage at the back that is apparently used for music events. There's nothing else about the decor worth mentioning. There was a large group of people enjoying a party atmosphere. It seemed that I had stumbled into an end of work party for those who had been working at a shelter over the Christmas period. And a decent bunch they seemed as well � I had a friendly chat with a lady who undertakes this charitable work every year. But that was the best thing about my visit.

There were two pumps on the bar � one apparently not in use, and the other sporting a GKIPA clip. OK, GKIPA is a long way from being my favourite ale, but is a lot better than nothing � but �no, we don�t have it�. Why do pubs leave the clip on display when the ale being advertised is not on? Anyway, I know it�s on the CAMRA inventory of pubs with heritage interiors, but I�m afraid I saw nothing to endear this place to me; I would have to sum it up as being characterless and uninspiring.

well what can i say. Had my uncles Howards funeral there on friday, was with my family including his twin brother Roy. The landlady wanted �400 for a buffet, we said "how much", she said, "well i've gotta make some money". So we decided to do it ourselves. Got to the pub, no tables available to put food onto, had to move peoples drinks to put the food on, this is all after the funeral. We wasnt even approached by the landlady at all, they ran out of glasses during the evening, and to top it all, charged my family �4 each to get in. Nice people!!!!! Piss up in a brewery comes to mind.
The only good thing about the evening was little Tommys 70th birthday, the Flying Saucers playing, and the people who attended and made it a memorable evening for Roy and the rest of my family.
So to sum it up, unless you are going to see a good band playing there, dont bother. There is no atmosphere ,and the landlady is not approachable.

oh my god.i think the owners have bin here as long as the cornerstones!! they're lovely people, fantastic live rock and roll on the weekends but need to invest in a bigger and better pool table.
