I can't believe it, they had 6 taps of ale and none of them were on. This was my first trip to the POW and has always been recommended to me. But there was nothing I could drink! What?

Last weekend I came here on a hen party for a stop off in the hope of playing penanque in the square. However due to the lovely weather all the space was taken up. This is a lovely little pub tucked in the corner of the square. We were on a Hen Party and extremely lovely of the manager who... More

My friend and I met there last night for a bite to eat and a drink, never again. The guy behind the bar was incredibly rude! There was a sudden influx of people so he was busy, but there was no excuse for his rudeness when I was ordering our food and drinks. I asked if we could create a... More

We visited today for the first time on the day of the Kennington Village Fete. We did not want to leave!! The atmosphere was absolutely wonderful and all the staff were prompt, courteous and engaging. A special mention has to go to 'Pete' the bartender. He really goes that extra mile and without a doubt brightens up your day, with... More

We always visit this pub when in London and have always found it very pleasant and extremely relaxing. The prices are not cheap however it is so peaceful and relaxing you don't mind paying. All of the locals who frequent it seem to be very friendly and often engage in conversation even to strangers like ourselves. The food also looks... More

I have been a regular at this pub for many years....and I have watched it's gradual decline to a soul-less, depressing local pub. There is no interaction between staff and customer (apart from one long term staff member). Food is well below average. Beer tastes as though the pipes are not cleaned regularly and there is now a pram permanently... More

I have visited this pub a couple of times with my mum who visits on a more regular basis. We eat here and have a drink before going to a pub round the corner that has a small theatre. The staff here are so lovely, friendly and warm. The bald guy, in particular, just brightens up your day and makes... More

This is a wonderful place for having a drink sitting outside and looking over Cleaver Square, a lovely and more relaxed part of London. The pub is fairly small, decor is simple and in keeping with its age and although the pub doesn't have a big menu it does a few things well and that is part of its charm.... More

The pub itself is nothing to write home about, indeed it is pretty tiny and doesn't have the greatest food or widest selection of beers. What it does have is access to Cleaver Square, and the ability to lend you a boules set to play in the square. Makes for a great summer's afternoon

After seeing a number of positive reviews online I made a beeline for this pub. But apart from a very nice location I was unfortunately unimpressed. The bar service was very cold with unsure staff, half of the ales were not on and we were curtly told that there was "no food tonight". Rubbish service. Barely a handful of customers... More
