Halfway down narrow Church Street, parallel to the Thames and the Eel Pie Island of early 1960s music lore, this likeable old Hall & Woodhouse pub is a real rugby haunt. Walls of framed tickets, colour caricatures and signed shirts line the far end of the two-space interior, historic prints of this sleepy neighbourhood the other.
Between them, the bar features taps that might offer drinkers the likes of Kronenbourg and Amstel, various Badger-branded ales (First Gold, Hopping Hare, the summery Lemony Cricket), Harveys Sussex Best and Peroni.
Prices are reasonable, helping to keep this place in business when there’s no Six Nations game or big-name concert up the road. Sit outside on summer weekends, when the street gets closed to traffic.
