Good meeting point.

Across the road and a little along from Waterloo station jublee line.

Food and rooms available.

Very good sports coverage on various screens.

Ideal for a swift one before the train. Pub door to station platforms less than 3 minutes.

Can be a passionate and vocal crowd on matchday.

Fair sized pub for the location and often enough space if in groups.

A good chip shop a few doors down.

And if you do decide to pop in.
Don't forget... you must look up. . take in the ceiling.

They served me an absolutely foul tasting Peroni, so after two sips I went to the bar and told the bar maid who simply gave me funny looks. She walked off and came back with some peculiar looking man with a weird moustache (presumably the manager, although what he was managing I wasn't sure, the place was a shambles). He asked what I had eaten and said that it must be my tastebuds in an aggressive manner. I persisted and asked for it to be changed which he reluctantly did. Could hear the people next to me commenting how rude he was. Why make it difficult, just change the drink!

Mate had wallet on table, they cleared our plates from the table and took his wallet(I can only hope by mistake). We noticed it was gone 20mins later, asked the manager if they had a wallet behind the bar, he immediately said no. After another 10 mins of looking another person in the party asked one of the other bar staff who quickly said yes and gave the wallet back. After confronting the manager he replied he was originally too busy to look and didn't even offer an apology. There are signs are up warning of pick pockets, obviously refers to the vertically challenged manager.

Dinner and drinks were quality. The Sunday dinner was light on meat (the roast lamb was tender and flavourful) but certainly didn't leave me empty: a lights crisp Yorkshire pudding, rust potatoes with gravy, cauliflower with sweet, sautéed cabbage, and a rich scoop of mashed turnip. Price (£12.95) was typical for London. Beer and cider we're about £5/pint, with around a dozen options on tap (Kozel, Fowlers, Guinness, etc...) and it seemed a good spot for catching a football/soccer match on the TVs. Atmosphere was relaxed and made for a decent dinner stop.

The room is nice, the food is good. There are no elevators (lifts) and our room was on the 'third' (4th) floor. The room faces the train yard, it leaves you with the option to either close the windows and turn on the fan to stay kinda cool with slightly less noise....or leave them open to have more noise and be slightly less cool. It has a pub downstairs so and it right next to the subway (tube) so you can get a beer or travel around with ease. The public transportation here is amazingly efficient.

Ok, so my room overlooked the main railway for Waterloo... And sure I could hear the train's. I'll forgive them all that for a fabulous experience. What an amazing room, great decor, clean and everything worked, even all the channels worked on the TV! I loved the little twisty staircase and oh boy .... THAT shower!!! Great little pub too... Staff were lovely and to top it off a really great breakfast. Well done and I'll certainly be returning.

Location of hotel is the best of south London. One of the biggest train and underground station Waterloo is just there in front of entrance. But the room is so much narrow most of all, also bathroom and shower booth is too small. Futhermore, there is no refrigerator and air conditioner in the room, there is no elevator in the hotel. This is why I can not recommend this hotel.

You get what you pay for here. £95 a night for a double room in central London is a good rate. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have ensuite bathrooms. Food in the pub is good and reasonably priced. Would stay again. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is its quite noisy as next to main road and Waterloo train station, however ear plugs are provided.

Convenient for Waterloo station and shows the sport. Big inside, however it's lacking a big screen and gets very hot; it's here or the sports bar in the station for sport with quick access to the station. Personally, choose here as it's more of a traditional pub feel and you're less likely to need to make a booking to watch a big game.

Hotel is in great spot, right next to subway station. It has pub in the lobby and reception is really hard to find. Rooms itself are decent but way too expensive for what they offer. On the other hand the food and the ambient are great. I would recommend if you are ready to spent a bit more amount of money for staying next to the station.

Busy pub in the centre of London, very close to Waterloo station. Good quality food, literally something for everyone. Good service with a large variety of beers and as it's a Fuller's pub a lot of the old favourites. Make sure you get there early as it does get very busy at lunch time and evenings

The hotel is good value for central London. The rooms are nicely decorated and have everything you need them to have. The only downside for me was the loud music. I understand it is a pub but the music was ridiculously loud and being on the 1st floor meant this really impacted the enjoyment of our stay.

Was able to secure reserved seating for 20 people on a Thursday evening without charge. Bar staff are efficient. Screens are not too loud. Prices are about right for London. Worth walking out of Waterloo Station for as it is just across the road. Gets busy but not too much of a squeeze. 2 long bars.

Good selection of beer available in the pub attached to the hotel. Very busy as to be expected at 6pm on a Friday night although we got seats fairly swiftly. This was let by the horrifying state of the gentleman's toilet which had completely flooded out of the sole lavatory, disgusting.

2 by Callum Funnell Review source

As a Fullers pub you expect the beer to be good and indeed it is, and a reasonable bar menu as well. We were meeting friends prior to a concert and it was a good venue for that. My only criticism is that at the time we were there the bar was very busy and it took a long time to get served.

4 by Paul Davison Review source

It's a Fullers pub (attached to a hotel). I was there at 11am for a Waterloo train and it wasn't busy at all. Good interior. I recommend turning right from the doors or left if you're behind the bar as we sat near the toilets which smelled a bit.

3 by Helen Yeah Review source

Busy pub very close to the station made this an ideal place to catch up with a group of friends. Fair range of beers available, but they're all pretty mainstream. They show sports too which was a bonus. Didn't sample the food or see any of the rooms.

Only been to the bar so I can't comment on the hotel. The bar is ok. Sports nights are loud and it's hard to have a conversation but it's quit popular. Near Waterloo station so it's convenient to have a pint before going home after work.

3 by Dennis Lindwall Review source

Absolutely awful customer service. The bar staff cleared a nearly full pint and refused to co operate when I told them. Very angry customer. Will not be coming back again. Also the bar staff burped in my friends face when he ordered a pint. Not pleasant!

Extremely disappointed!!! We were waiting for our food for 30min, without an apology. We ordered fries!!!!! It looked as kitchen forgot our order as other people around us got their food in reasonable time. We were two and they brought one cutlery only.

Room was acceptable. Shower was not in the best working condition. Located in very busy location. Loud until early morning hours but you likely know that beforehand. Would not stay here again unless I was in a pinch and needed the location.

Stopped in for lunch, what I'd call 'proper' pub. Dark wood, good beer, and good food. Very handy for Waterloo and the IMAX, service was good, prices were London-reasonable, and the clientele a nice mix of the young and old.

Two nights in a lovely hotel, nicely remodeled rooms in the heart of London. Easy distance from everything and wonderful for public transport.. wifi in all rooms and pub area. General manager and staff very kind and helpful. Recommended.

5 by Anita BinnsMoore Review source

Nice place to stay, doesn't look much walking down from the train station. When inside its nice enough with the rooms very good, clean, modern, although a little too warm. Breakfast was very good although choice a little strict.

4 by Ian Hibberd Review source

Decent pub near to Waterloo. Quite big inside, you should find a seat pretty easily. Staff are alright, the food is standard pub grub, and there's always sport on the TVs too - if that's your thing. A good meeting place.

5 by James Whatley Review source

Good location, wifi and clean room. Biggest drawback was a broken window that cannot be closed, so 8C and rainy outdoors, very chilly and humid/damp inside + heating not working. Not a good experience, could easily get cold.

Great central spot, very comfortable clean rooms, a bit small maybe but no big deal, family of four slept comfortably. Great classic english pub downstairs, great pints, good service, manager is on point and cares

An incredible place. It's so lovely and has many good vibes. It's crowded though, which I do not mind. Staff very friendly and as mentioned the atmosphere is fantastic. It had the old days spirit

4 by Gabriel Taylor Review source

Great atmosphere, went for a couple of drinks and had a great time. Close to Waterloo station and other transport links so ideal for a quick drink. Friendly staff and lovely place for a couple of drinks

Decent hotel near Waterloo Station with friendly staff. Rooms are a touch small and get very humid when it rains. Oh and there is no lift, so you're carrying your bags up some narrow stairs.
