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.
