This used to be a lovely slightly off the beaten track pub in Wimbledon Village. On the old classic Olly Read pub crawl. So when I heard it had been reinvented as a pub/restaurant with accommodation I was a little anxious. But time marches on and tastes and needs change. On my recent visit back "home" I booked in here with my wife and two young children. We were made to feel so welcome. When I booked I was told that two adults and two small children in the room would be a tight squeeze, and it was. But the proprietor was flexible and let me go ahead and book anyway. The pub has been very tastefully renovated and the room we had was bright and clean. A bit on the small side, but perfect for a couple or two people and a baby. Free parking is always available on the street outside. We did not eat dinner here so cannot comment on that. But we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The beer is very good too. Continental breakfast is included in the room price and cooked breakfast is extra. But this is no ordinary continental breakfast - cereal, fresh baked bread/toast, fresh baked croissants, pain au chocolat, pastries, fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice, excellent coffee. It was in fact the best continental breakfast I have ever had. We will be back - if not to stay (unless we find baby sitters!), then definitely to sample the restaurant fare! I have struggled to find a fault - the only thing I can come up with is that the old sash windows could do with replacing/refitting as they let in a bit of a draught.
