Just a few Friday beers but pleasantly surprised. This is the most traditional London pub I've been in for years. Not a tourist trap, a pub. It even has traditional skittles! A real friendly atmosphere, if it's aimed at locals it didn't feel like it. Well worth a visit.

Lovely decor, really boutique style room, massive bathroom and great shower. Lots of helpful freebies in the room which was a nice touch. The location is great. Breakfast in the morning was super, proper coffee and made to order breakfast. Highly recommend.

Stayed here last week whilst in London for the men's semi finals of Wimbledon. Can not recommend this place enough, beautifully decorated, great little luxury touches and amazing food. Thank you for a great stay, can not wait to return.

This hotel is literally opposite Wandsworth Town train station. The exterior of the hotel does not do this hotel any favours and this is a perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. There was initially a bit of a mix up with my booking but I have rarely encountered such helpful staff and the problem was resolved... More

I have stayed here on two occasions, and have had an excellent experience both times. The boutique hotel rooms are an extension of the Young's pub with the same name. The pub is very-well looked after, serves very good food, and has a lively and friendy buzz to it on a Friday evening. Staff are excellent. The rooms are very... More

Large double bed (queen sized I believe) lovely large bathroom and plenty of room in generaly. My daughter also stayed and was on the first floor and also had... More

We visited in June 2016. The hotel is directly opposite Wandsworth Station (you don't hear the trains), with quick connections to Waterloo Station and the underground and right on the bus route to Victoria. It is also within a short walking distance to the river. On the face of it the hotel looks like a typical English pub, but what... More

Lovely ambience in the pub and in the restaurant at the back where you can see all the kitchen, really nice. Good menu with Sunday roasts. Beef was good as was the pork with shared roast potatoes and vegetables. Service was attentive and friendly. Deserts were excellent! Overall reasonable price for 2 courses and wine (£80).
