I'd heard such great things about this legendary Balham bar, and unfortunately I am disappointed. The first thing that hits you when you walk in is the unfortunate very strong set of old chip fat. Honestly it's vile and so strong! The bar prices are a little more steap then other places in the area and it's totally lacking in choice. I would have expected some interesting ales if craft...more
