With 30 minutes to kill before our train to Kingston for football a pal and I popped in for a quick beer. Rugby seven’s on television kept some of the punters entertained.

Fairly quick service form the bar staff, several ales o the hand pumps, all pretty much bog standard ales, I opted for a pint of St Austell’s Tribute, which was decent enough.

As per my last posting, the Beer house serves a purpose for a beer while waiting for your train and without having to leave the station. Pleasant enough.

On then way back from football in Kingston on a Tuesday night and wanting a couple of beers before home we opted for the “newly” named Beer House opposite the platforms at Waterloo Station.

This was my first visit to this pub for a very long time, the last time I was here it was named something else (the name escapes me so I cannot confirm it was called Coopers) it was pretty grotty & from memory had a poor choice of ales.

The Beer House is now a Greene King pub and this is reflected on the 6 hand pumps with the ales being from the GK family. The pair of us both had a couple of pints of GK’s Scrum Down @ 4.2%. A decent ale and not badly priced either, especially for this area.

Pretty busy with a mix of drinkers and people waiting for their trains home.

It’s certainly no Kings Arms but it’s not a bad option if you want a beer and cannot be bothered to leave the station.

Apparently now under new ownership and imaginatively called "The Beer House". Since we had half an hour to kill before meeting friends to catch a train, we popped in for a quick pint. No surprise that at 11.15am it wasn't particularly busy and as the only other customer at the bar was just picking up his beer and change, I was expecting to be served next. I was rather curtly told by the only person behind the bar that she was "doing coffees" and we'd have to wait. After watching her messing about at the coffee machine for five minutes, we decided we weren't THAT desperate for a couple of expensive pints from their (not particularly imaginative) selection of ales and walked out. Who's fault? The "punters" who don't grasp what the name "The Beer House" means? It's not as if Waterloo Station suffers from a shortage of places specifically serving coffee - Costa for instance? Greedy organisations who run a bar in a prime site at a busy station with only one staff member? Or me, who perhaps unreasonably expects to get served as soon as the only other guy standing at the bar has picked up his drink and change and sat down?

I should have realised what was ahead when, at 1pm on a weekday, this pub was almost empty. My friend and I ordered a cheese burger and a chicken burger, both of which were terrible. My burger was grey and overcooked, flavourless, and served in a stale bun. My friend's chicken burger, also served in a stale bun, was devoid of any flavour other than the coating. Not surprising as the amount of actual meat in it was miniscule. When asked by the staff member who cleared the table if the meal was all right, we both said "no" and my friend added that the chicken burger he had just eaten some of was "the worst he had ever eaten". The only response from the member of staff was "Oh", as he walked away. Given the price of the food, it was appalling value for money.

The chance of either of us ever going back - NIL!
