One of two neighbouring pubs on the edge of Wimbledon Common, the Hand in Hand is rustic in appearance (it was once a bakehouse) and traditional in feel. There's a bit more space inside this one than first impressions would have you believe, and its low-roofed interior has a cosy feel which is ideal for the winter months (the summer finds drinkers exiting this one for a patch of grass in front of the pub, but the pub will ask you to drink from a plastic 'glass' if this is where you're heading - fair enough). A pleasantly unpretentious pub, but one which also lays an interesting range of entertainments to pull in the punters - acoustic nights, poker evenings, even Pilates were advertised when we last looked in. The food is also good, if perhaps a little inflated in price. A bacon/cheese burger was over £11 on our last visit. Tempted to give this a 4-pint rating but it falls just a little short.
