This place is a really nice little pub. There's a small section of outside seating and seating around the bar, which offers a huge range of craft beers and cider. There's a separate eatery at the back of the bar, which is a nice change! If you fancy watching some sport, there are a couple of huge TVs on which... More

If you are seeking a ' locals' bar, with a great menu, then this place on Northcote road, Battersea should be on your list! Northcote Road is a trendy street with lots of restaurants, bars, street vendors and boutique shops. This place attracts a good professional crowd.

Visited on a Saturday evening with friends. They have a nice selection of craft beers on tap and in bottles. We didn't try the food, we only went there to drink. The venue has a brown-friendly environment with knowledgeable staff that let you sample the beers on tap. The only downside is that some of the beers are over £5... More

Met a friend after work in this bar and found it is well frequented by other blokes from work. Good beer and not too pricey. Just not much room for sitting down. Good atmosphere though.

Visited here with friends as it had been recommended for the choice of real ales and beers available. Enjoyed several beers and some good pub food. Service was good, efficient and friendly. Considering the number of choices available on the Northcote Road I enjoyed my evening here and would have no problem recommend it to others.

Food, service and price are very average all the way round. nothing about this pub would make me go back again. Service is very slow and menu is definately not accurate in what actually shows up on your table. The boys who wait on the tables are lost and cant keep up with customers orders.

Hi Steve, Thanks for taking time to give us some feedback. We’re very sorry to hear about your average experience at our pub. Average is certainly not our aspiration. It is by no means an excuse, but on the day of your visit we were experiencing some major issues with our electrics which were affecting all aspects of service and... More

All about the chicken wing Wednesday! Plus there is a huuuuuge selection of non-mainstream ales, beers and ciders which is nice :) Smaller than most Draft Houses in the chain, but still is a nice local watering hole.

Good food. Went for dinner after the tower bridge event. Very close and in a cute out of the crowd place. Felt more like a local eatery/bar. Large portions of food. Very tasty food. Good drinks
