  1. You don’t seem to be getting many recommendations – perhaps you should drop a word to London Drinker (where I first heard about your Underground quest). Here are some of mine:

    Richmond – you are spoilt for choice here. Try the Prince’s Head, a Fuller’s house on The Green.

    St Margaret’s – The Turk’s Head, a Fuller’s pub on Winchester Road.

    Twickenham – another good place for a pub crawl. Try the Barmy Arms on The Embankment.

    1. I have been meaning to email the London Drinker, thanks for the reminder. Have had a couple of suggestions via Twitter too. I visited St Margaret’s and Twickenham last week, both great spots and could have chosen several pubs for both. (I did The Ailsa Tavern and The Eel Pie respectively)

  2. Kew Bridge the best pub is the Express Tavern right next door to the station. It will be a good idea to email the branch contacts of each local CAMRA branch of which their is 13 in London.

    1. Thanks Alex – have heard good things about The Express Tavern so I’m looking forward to it. Good idea on the CAMRA front too.

  3. In your list of stations coming up, you seem to have omitted Raynes Park, one of my old stamping grounds. The Cavern in Coombe Lane has an excellent selection of 1960s and 70s rock on the jukebox, also Beatles etc memorabilia. (If you insist on a meal as well as beer, the Raynes Park Tavern and Edward Rayne are better bets).
    For Norbiton, try the Albert, a Youngs pub on Kingston Hill with its Victoria and Albert memorabilia still in place. When I worked nearby in the late 1990s, it was still called the Albert Arms.

    1. Oops – it was in there before, it must have slipped off when I put the new stations in. Thanks for the tips, I like the sound of The Cavern, if you’ll excuse the pun.

  4. Hi, just seen your piece in the London Drinker. I would definitely recommend the pop up pub directly opposite the Gypsy Hill railway station . Run by Late Knights Brewery its a real gem . Second choice is the Anerley Arms next to Anerley station. A Samuel Smiths house. The interior is one of the last traditional Victorian styles. .

    1. Thanks for both the suggestions. I’ve never got off at Anerley Station before so that’s a particularly useful recommendation.
