Nestled in the more charming villagey part of Pimlico, The Constitution is a butterfly of a pub. On certain visits we've found the clientele was resolutely of the local men variety, all there to watch the football. However, at certain times, a metamorphosis occurs and as the lone men to wend their way home, they are replaced by younger, friendlier couples and groups all out for a quiet evening of socialising. As a result, the place magically becomes more inviting - unfortunately we just can't predict when this happens. Inside the decor is pleasantly old-school, the staff efficient, the food cheap and the ales well kept. We should also be grateful that it can provide a good place for a quieter drink on a Friday night: while other nearby pubs are filled to the rafters with afterwork drinkers, The Constitution is usually a more pleasant place to be.

Must've caught it on a larval night. Friday at around 8pm, abovementioned local men present and accounted for. Not a problem in itself, but my draught of Marston's Pedigree was the foulest beer I've had since university, tasting of fetid gas. I wasn't about to try anything else after that, so we went back to Cask Pub & Kitchen for some excellent ales.
