Great food and good ale selection. Had some great lunches and great nights out here with mates.
This is a lovely Young's pub close to the Common and a few minutes' walk from the village part of Wimbledon at the top of the hill. The building dates back to the 1830s and was originally a bakery, before its conversion to a pub.
The landlord is very keen on his ales, and does occasional beer tasting and cellar tours (except the 'cellar' in this case is at ground level), and as you'd expect the real ale is well kept and there is a good choice of seasonal and guest ales. It has a nice atmosphere and a small drinking area at the front. There have only a limited kitchen so the range of food is limited, but it is a good (though pricey) place for a pint.
Wimbledon is a funny old place. You'd expect lots of great, cute pubs with roaring fires and friendly people. Well, that's not what you get. For some reason there are just NO nice watering holes in this neck of the woods. Everything is a chainy, weathspoons hell hole with zero character.
Finally though, when the sun was shining, I stumbled across this brilliant place. Charming rustic and with a lot of awards for best pub. We got our beers in plastic cups and went to sit on the green immediately outside the pub. It was like spending the day in proper English countryside!
We didn't spend long inside but the food menu looked good and quite reasonably priced. The drinks however are HELLA EXPENSIVE! Yes, I know it's wimbledon common aka billionaire paradise, but come on. Nearly £9 for two pints?! Sheesh.
Great place for one or two drinks on the green. Any more than that and you'd be bankrupted!
This is a really lovely pub with low ceilings and a wraparound bar that is cosy and unusual. They have quite a lot of outdoor seating and a family room. The night we were there they also had a pub quiz on, I totally knew one of the answers. There seems to be quite a good range of wine as well as beer.
Food was fairly expensive for a pub (about £10 - 12 for a main course) but the fish & chips was first rate and a huge portion. Lots of other good options too, including cheaper sandwiches and munchies. And they have bags of pork scratchings, which obviously means they are legit.
Great little pub just off the common...nice outdoor area and you can also enjoy your pint on the grass.
They have a good menu as well, try the bacon brie and cranberry sammy...delish
This is a great traditional pub which has lots of atmosphere. In these times of chain pubs being very boring and not having any atmosphere, its nice to see that this Youngs pub chain pub still has a bit of a village pub feel about it. Its only about 5 minutes walk from Wimbledon High street so although its a bit out of the way, its definitely worth the effort in my opinion. I didn't try the food while I was there as only stopped in for a drink but it the menu looked very good so will defo be going back there for food some other time.
Lovely pub, well worth wandering from the common to! good choice of ales and wines, excellent outdoor terrace and if the weather suits you can sit out on the green to soak up a fantastic rural atmosphere A wonderful 'escape' pub, one you can spend a whole evening in setting the worlds to right.
This is a friendly traditional pub with friendly staff and a good selection of well-kept real ales. Try their Peri-Peri Chicken salad it's fantastic!
