Pratts & Payne

Pratts & Payne

This pub was editorially chosen for inclusion by the Londonist team.

Odd name, odd interior, excellent pub. We could leave the write-up there, but Pratts & Payne needs a bit more explanation. This cavernous bar takes its name from two Streatham legends: the now-vanished Pratts department store and local sex-party hostess Cynthia Payne.

It's cut from the same cloth as those other south London mega-pubs Tooting Tram and Balham Bowls Club. Indeed, all three are operated by the growing Antic pub group. The P&P follows the usual (and laudable) Antic antics of serving up top food, with unusual ales (ever seen Working Class Hero on a pump?) and a fine selection of wines. They also sell Monster Munch crisps, if you're after a vinegar-choking snack.

The decor is eccentric, including such novelties as poorly mounted promotions for marrowfat peas and a dusty trophy cabinet. A large dining area lurks round the back, followed by a sizeable beer garden.

Quiz night is Wednesday.

good pub, lots of variety in the beer choice, good food but the music is turned up to stupidly loud volume after about 9pm
