Popped in here while waiting for train.
I last used this pub in 1968 and it's gone from a traditional pub to a trendy type pub serving the modern keg type beers.
Staff were very friendly and it looks like a good place to have a night out.
I had a pint of Peckham Ale which was surprisingly good but it would be so much better if they served a decent draught ale.

The staff are lovely but not experienced. I asked for an Appleton rum with a dash of lemonade. I got Appleton with ice and a lot of lemonade. Twice.
To add insult to injury they twice cleared my drink away when evidently there was drink in the glass. I did tell bar staff and I was told my drink was my responsibility! Now I don't let any one walk off with the kids but hey if I go to the loo I expect my drink to still be there. Yes even if it is 'only half an inch'
So on telling bar staff there was an over zealous staff member I got another drink and hey it lasted a mere 10 minutes before being cleared away Again! No apology for clearing away the drink you just paid for? Another I should have looked after it.....very poor mate. And on spotting a punter breaking a glass did I leave it? No politely told staff what had happened.

unbelieveably aboyt 5 minutes after putting a drink down it ahppened again. I was told clear shorts away wo

A pretty decent pub. Every time I leave this pub I feel like I should have stayed longer, but then check my wallet and realise my choice was probably for the best.

Starting off the bad.

For a SW London pub this is one of the most expensive I've been to, about £6 a glass of wine and nearly £5er for all of the beers, it's a little steep. However, if you want cheap, go to the dive which is the 'White Hart' over the road (if you didn't get that, avoid the white hart).
The bar staff are friendly and comprised of several cheerful, attractive ladies and they sell a decent variety of drinks, however the time it takes to get served is, at the best of times, awful. They serve a lot of food so most of the staff you'll see will be clearing tables and ushering plates to patrons, not filling glasses with decent ale. When the place gets busy the service gets even worse, and I've never once seen the outside bar open.

That aside, if you want a quiet beer and don't mind paying for it, I can think of few pubs in SW London I'd rather go to. The location is fantastic (right on the A23 and South Circ intersection outside Tulse Hill station), the building is unmistakable, they have a smoking area to the right and a big beer garden outside, they play live sports, have table football, pool (£1 a game) and table tennis outside and even have a seperate dining area and booths outside where you can go, chill and have a little smoke in peace, quiet and relative outside warmth.

Overall one of the best pubs in the area, far better than anything else in Tulse Hill, and the fact that my commute is from Tulse Hill station and I live over the road means that mine's a Doom Bar and I'll be on the bench outside just by the door.

excellent place for a pitstop if waiting for train connections. Nothing wrong with the Ale. Seems to be family friendly.
