Catering for all tastes, this laid-back venue in Putney is one of the best in the area. This 'l-shaped' pub is filled with an eclectic mix of old tables, chairs and relaxing leather sofas, further enhanced by bookcases scattered with books, vases and plants. The pub's decor also remains true to its rowing heritage with a river mural, set of oars, and an impressive list of winners of the Coat and Badge Sculling Race, making it a firm favourite for Oxford v Cambridge Race Day! The menus feature different choices every day, with daily specials and an extensive wine list. Meanwhile, summer evenings in the garden are legendary, with barbecues all weekend through the summer, jazz bands on Boat Race Day and the wonderful mix of locals and those wanting to be spotted by the team at the bar!

Nice pub in Putney. If it's a nice day there's a great courtyard outside with TVs for watching sport, and inside you'll find plenty of tables, couches, and comfortable lounge chairs to relax in.

The big metal push area...more
Convivial (although too brightly lit for a date) atmosphere, crowded and busy yet decent bartenders still rapidly take your order from one-deep at the bar, kudos. Another one of the Geronimo Inns stable of semi-good gastropubs. I had the burger (when can i ever refuse the burger on a menu) but was a let down in general. What was lauded as a brioche bun was plainly seasame...Meat cooked fairly...more
The Coat and Badge offered a decent selection of food and drink. The Pimm's Cup was okay, not the best I've had, but wasn't bad. The other people I was with ordered the chicken and bacon salad with a light cream-based dressing off the specials board, and they seemed to enjoy it quite a bit. i ordered the Eggs Benedict, which was a no-frills, no sides eggs benny, but tasty for only 4.50!

There have been a number to times I have tried to go to this pub... and I'm sorry to say I'm old in that my friends and I have had to leave as the music is just too loud!
The Decor is okay, quite modern and stylish, but not to my taste as I do not like gastro-pubs and whilst this isn't one - it looks like it's trying to be.
The one time we successfully had a drink here, this was or...more
I liked my gammon with egg & chips here on Sunday the 12th and the Guinness was well poured. The taps seemed to only have a couple of real ales but there were quite a few lagers & Strongbow.
The interior's pleasing on the eye and the pub quiz (which incidently the team I joined won) made for a fairly good tempered but raucous bit of late weekend entertainment.more
