Despite a refurb in November 2012, this renowned hostelry can still feel like something from the days of the Raj. The Victorian ceilings are airily high, and wide windows let plenty of light into the bar. Chesterfield-style sofas surround huge tables, ideal for families and groups of friends, though the umbrella-covered outdoor tables are most coveted from spring on.

This is rugbyland, and you can expect plenty of turned-up collars and white shirts with roses on, but the spread of customers is wider than you might imagine. Beer is the great leveller: there are eight ales on offer at the mahogany bar, among them Harveys Sussex Best and Jaipur IPA from the Thornbridge Brewery in Derbyshire, while the glorious list of bottled brews is particularly strong on Belgian and American beers.

Regular beer festivals usually come with a tight focus, with May’s London Beer Festival and November’s Old Ale Festival well worth marking in the calendar.

After work drinks spot to be at! Lovely seating outside perfect for the summertime and everything you need to get socialising, highly recommend popping in if you are around the area. 


I love coming here for Sunday Roasts, pork belly one is delicious. Quality of food is great, ambiance as well. Located is on the corner of a park, and 1 minute to the Parsons Green station.
Relaxed atmosphere, garden for summertime.
The staff is not the best, but then again, can't have it all!


Oh I love this pub! Such a chilled vibe in the summer with everyone out on the (massive) terrace. They have a good range of beers and do delicious food as well for cosy winter evenings. Worth the trip even if Fulham isn't your local area, even if just to spot the odd celebrity there...

A superb summer pub. Unlike most London pubs, The WH offers a massive front beer garden that can literally fit over 100 people. Crowd is generally always a fun crowd who like me love a beer in the sun. A very popular pub so can get quite rammed on a sunny day. BBQs are setup out the front too which is brilliant. Staff friendly and it is pretty quick to get a drink.

Not as good as it used to be, coinciding with the new ownership. In particular the food quality has reduced whilst the prices rise. The staff are knowledgeable and offer good service. Get shot of the M&B food - used to be a cracking pub.

Had a wonderful evening here, food was great, beers delicious and Sara our server was ace!

Used to be good but service and food quality has fallen commensurately as new owners seek higher margins. Used to be a big fan but now could not recommend it for anything other than a drink and you have to be prepared to wait for that!

Fun place, fun customer base, dreadful service. The quality and speed of the bar staff really let this gem down.

Excellent assortment of international craft beer and a knowledgable staff who will help you navigate the assortment. Creative menu features unexpected options (mincemeat creme caramel) and classic pub favourites. Great place to be in any sort of weather and despite its reputation as the Sloaney Pony- any pub lover will appreciate a visit here.
