Jolly Gardeners, Mortlake
Another old school boozer, this one offers up something different to the bar across the road and the Railway Tavern over the park. A pool table in the back room and a big screen in the main bar catch the eye, though this is the sort of pub that probably doesn't entice too many new punters across its threshold, with most people walking past it and on to the riverside for The Ship. It's a locals pub for sure, and decent enough all in, with a clientele that was surely having a jolly time here when the brewery next door was still Watney's (certainly the furnishings of the pub hark back to the 1970s).
