Prominent pub opposite Tooting Bec tube.
This prominent corner pub opposite Tooting Bec tube used to be a rough joint inhabited by slightly scary alcoholics. Then Antic – who also run The Tooting Tram & Social, Balham Bowls Club, and The Antelope in Tooting – took it over and did one of their characteristically faux-bohemian makeovers in 2011.
Then it changed hands again, after a scare when it looked as if it might be turned into yet another Tesco. Tesco lost, the people won.
The new owners have given it more of a gastro-focus. Check out their menus to see the sort of thing they do now.
