user reviews of Hagen and Hyde, Balham

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

The Hagen & Hyde is very handy for Balham station and tube, situated just a couple of minutes walk away. The interior is dark and it is a typical Antic pub. There are 3 different levels. The area downstairs beyond the bar is primarily for drinkers, whilst the other 2 levels are for diners. 4 ales were being dispensed - Volden Session & Spring, Thornbridge Jaipur & Sambrook's Scrumdown. I went for the Spring, which was nice enough for a pale ale. There was no real cider and no keg cider. Instead, I was offered Bulmers, Magners or some other fizzy stuff from the fridge. The barman seemed to struggle with basic mathematic skills. After what seemed like an eternity at the till, he ended up asking me how much change he owed me! I normally like Antic pubs. But this one was below par.

I visited the pub to watch football with a friend on a Sunday afternoon and it ticked all the boxes, the Pub Owners are clever in that the football screen and room are separated from the main bar which means customers who aren't interested in football can socialise and dine in peace without being bothered by football punters, the upshot of which is that it doesn't feel like a football pub at all.

A good selection of local and international beers, I opted for the Brixton Brewery Pale Ale which was very well kept but very pricey at £5.50 a pint, a couple of quid more and I can buy myself a decent bottle of wine. I really don't know why local breweries price themselves out of the market. Anyway once this ran out I opted for the Jack Brand Mosaic Pale, it had an unusual taste and wasn't hoppy of full enough for me so I moved onto the Blue Moon, the bar staff have a habit of putting an orange slice in this beer a similar size to the slices you see Sunday football league players sucking on at half time, which makes the drink too sweet. When I was drinking it reminded me of drinking 'Snake bite' in my misspent use.

Overrall this is a good pub with decent food and a large patio out the back for those who enjoy sitting outside.

Not Marstons anymore. Friendly and helpful bar staff, good beer and a charming layout. Fair prices and pork scratchings. What's not to like? Possibly one of the best pubs in the area.

So it has more atmosphere then Pratts and Payne in Streatham and probably then the BBC as well. Good pub quiz as well, always a winner. Usually a decent selection of ales too. This time Antic have got the 'cool without trying too hard' look almost spot on.
