I grew up and lived in West London for almost forty years before recently moving south of the river, and this was always my favourite local.

For much of that time, itís been as close to perfect as it's possible for a pub to get. Always a decent range of drinks available (with things like Hoegaarden and Leffe coming on from time to time), never fail to get a seat, a pool table that you will actually be able to play on if you want to (almost unheard of in London these days), and an exceptionally friendly and uninhibiting atmosphere.

The friendly staff go some way towards helping in this respect, right back to the old days when they used to hand us the teletext controller to view the lower league football scores on the television. One really has to wonder quite how some of the other commentators below must have behaved to have come away with those experiences.

Looking at other recent reviews, if this pub is disliked by real ale snobs, sultry teenagers and people who seemingly canít even type a sentence then some might perhaps see this as a selling point. I certainly do. Comfortably one of the nicest pubs in West London.

an absolute terrible pub unless the irish chap is working, the spanish girl and the blond one left me waiting 22 mins to be served even though they said hi at the bar on my arrival i will go again only because the Chancelors down the road is a shite hole ... this is a genuine report of an awfull experience. dont take my word for it check it out first u will see in right

Given you could walk down the river and be in pubs like The Blue Anchor in minutes from here, I can't see why you'd go in The Old City.

Popped in on my way back to Barnes and the football was on. This seems to be the pub's focus having been past it every evening it has a board outside advertising that it shows live games. Food was being served which I didn't sample.I had a half of doombar which was OK. Agree with other posters that the atmosphere isn't great and the barmaid who served me not overwhelming.
