The Rail View became the View.The View was boarded up last week and will not rise phoenix like from the ashes.In several months time the local CAMRA Branch will show there true mettle and send a small footnote to the London Drinker and lament the Views passing by downing lots of ale in their bunker at the Hope Carshalton. Campaign my *rse!

After looking at this site and reading the previous statement below, even though a few years previous I must say I find it a very strange statement. From my understanding the management then is still in ownership now. But even though I'm not a regular regular I do attend quite often to watch the football or other events and I cannot compliment the host for their hospitality more. I've never felt I wasn't invited and have often been involved by the obvious regulars and never felt a "closed shop" mentality at all. But then what pub if you're not a full regular wouldn't make you feel that way?

In all I find the service from staff and owners delightful and would highly recommend anyone to this pub.

This pub is a potential goldmine, it has a great location, parking its large and even has a lovely garden.

it is surrounded by many pubs doing a roaring food trade, but the management are failing miserably and have even had to close their kitchen. And they are really pushing their luck.

Sadly this place is a 'closed shop', something I thought didn't really exist anymore. As you walk in and if you are a new face the silence decends and as one other chap mentioned in his reviews the service is cold, frosty and unfriendly its run by the kind of cagey people who don't look you in the eye and that make you just feel uncomfortable and certainly not wanting to hand over any readies to.

Looking for great business opportunity?

Find out who owns the lease change the name to something classically pubish - go upmarket and make this the great pub it certainly has every potential to be, I give it less than a year under present management!

That's decided then, one pub I shall continue visiting, knowing that slerpy will not be going there any more.

I was given to understand that "The View" was holding a beer festival this weekend,as this was the first time that such an event has taken place hereI did not expect much and was not disappointed.Walking towards the pub I saw so many notices advising of forthcoming events etc.that reading them all would take up a ridiculous amount of time,I was not overly bothered when Cameroon played Denmark.The festival boasted five ales.I chose a pint of B.G.Tips from Blue Monkey Brewery which was drinkable but did not persuade me that I should order another.The service was poor,the barman and guvnor were put out by my appearance as I disturbed their conversation( customers always wanting to be served!) The outside garden has a huge decking area which looks decidedly"chavvy" a horrible thing to do not what would otherwise be a decent garden.I will make a point of not bothering this place with my trade again.
