The good pub guide review
Not surprsingly, given its location on the edge of Wimbledon Common, this spacious 18th-c gastropub is extremely popular with walkers and their dogs at lunchtime. There's always a good mix of both drinkers and diners, and the efficient, friendly staff manage to keep things running smoothly, even when it gets busy. The large, roomy main bar, with a step between its two halves, has high ceilings with unusual chandeliers, all sorts of wooden and leather dining chairs around scrubbed or painted tables on stripped boards or parquet flooring, and built-in wall seats and settles with pretty scatter cushions. Sharps Doombar and changing guests such as Sambrooks Wandle and Wimbledon Common Pale Ale on handpump, 13 wines by the glass (plus two sparkling ones) and a few malt whiskies; background music. The three bright bedrooms are light, airy and pretty. Parking is pay-and-display. Sister pub is the Victoria in East Sheen.
