Went into this pub on 1 other occation and was not impressed at all that was 3 maybe 4 years ago and said i would never go back. however one drunken night last week i went in there with a freind and have to say wow! what a change for the good. it was buzzing with customers the busiest i have ever seen this pub. they had an elvis person on in the back function bar but the place was rammed packed. a freind told me to try the place as it has good bands singers etc. and he was so right. its exspensive the side and back bar does need a clean up but what a change for the good. finally the place has got managment who cares about the place! will return and so should others its not the railway bell we all knew and hated its the new railway bell that people should try!

Had 15 minutes to kill waiting for a train so popped in for a quick one. Only London Pride on (1.65 a half). Looks a bit shabby and run down, stage area around the back.

Still empty. I'd give it a try if it had live music that attracted me, like ORIGINAL bands, not covers bands or such.
But I don't blame the management for booking bands playing more tried-and-tested material. At least it's not the front room of the Gorringe with its one man bands posing as live music.

Happy to help with some custom, when I'm not too busy travelling to places that offer something I need - but Tooting is a pretty diverse place (read: socially-segregated).

Divided along the lines of race, nationality and culture with very LITTLE mixing (even Brixton has more with their snobby places), and it's not the British people's fault as I detect very little racism there... lovely sociable, educated immigrants only come in the form of doctors and the rare open-minded people who're above being held-back by invisible, old-fashioned, pathetic social barriers). Everyone shares the desire for a new LCD TV on their wall, why that instead of sharing the desire to socialise together and mix? Scared? At some level, yes! Poor people monetarily seems to mean poor people socially, how sad. I live here, incidentally, but it's bloody true if you look around! That's the problem with many pubs and public places in Tooting - ignorance of how to live nicely, rather than rushing around to the next earning opportunity, ghetto it is indeed! Only love can overcome the ghetto's pressures, whoever you are and wherever you come from... Where's the love, Tooting?
