Where once fine and varied sausages were the main selling points of this well-hidden pub near Charing Cross post office, now it’s sought-after ales. The board outside details the current selection, while around a bar counter that's eminently suited to being propped up, obscure beer mats tell of ales from yesteryear.
It’s not only ales – ten at any one time, but Sambrook's Wandle and Harveys Sussex Best are regulars – but traditional cider and perry too. Sausages still sizzle away on the hob beside the bar, where cheery regulars chat with the staff or study the racing form. Decor is provided by portraits of long-forgotten personalities lining the walls of the narrow main bar, and signature harps glazing in the front windows, which open out completely as summer comes. There's also a quieter upstairs room.
