“Like the front terrace? You’ve seen nothing yet. How about the pretty side garden? Just wait. Through the back is not just the best pub garden in Balham, but one of the best in London.”
“With enough plants, shrubs and decking to make Alan Titchmarsh go weak at the knees, it’s an idyllic place to enjoy top pub grub in the sun.”
