About the Pub

Tucked away next to Larkhall Park, this small, down-to-earth, L-shaped local was refurbished in 2018 and now includes an extension to the side. It is the only building remaining from streets that were replaced by the park after WW2 bomb damage.

The back room walls display caricatures of regular customers, while the middle section has old photos of Battersea Power Station.

Wednesday is poker night, and balls are available for the adjacent petanque pitch.

The pub sign portrays a surprised John Young, the late and legendary Chairman of the old Young's Brewery.

The pub passed to Punch ownership in 2021.

Pizzas are available to eat in or take away.
