SquareMeal Review of The Half Moon Putney

For decades, this Putney pub’s bijou stage has hosted everyone from The Stones & The Who to KD Lang & U2 – & thanks to its new backers, Geronimo Inns, it may even outlast Bono’s career. The Half Moon’s atmospheric live gig room, largely untouched, features an eclectic mix of strummers, blowers & crooners nightly, while the bar functions as a separate space – so earplugs aren’t necessary with your glass of fruity Syrah/Grenache house red or pint of local ale from Battersea microbrewer, Sambrook’s. The lounge bar (there's a garden too) has been given a typical Geronimo makeover – a slightly overstuffed, updated idea of what a trad boozer should look like, complete with a menu of Brit comfort food for today’s Cath Kidston classes: cured meats & pickles, eggs & bacon, fish & chips, apple pie & custard. Ultimately, it’s more Mick Hucknall than Mick Jagger.

Meal for two was disappointing Plus points – nice atmosphere, refit done very well, interesting and appropriate menu, food was good when it arrived, short but decent wine list Negatives – 20-30 min wait between courses, missing cutlery, wait to order drinks when restaurant was 1/3 full, drinks left off the bill but no thank-you or free drink when we corrected this Overall, they do the drinks / music very well. The food menu is ambitious and I think the kitchen knows what its doing. However, if they continue to charge restaurant prices for the food, they need to hire restaurant level wait staff rather than just use bar staff when they are not pulling pints. Won't be back for food until things change.
