We ordered some soup, and we did not get bread with it. Once we finished our starters we needed to wait for 15 minutes to have our table cleared. After finishing our mains another 20 minutes passed by and none of the waiters came to clear the table. We waited for desert menu, but decided not to have anything, as the waiters are careless, ignorant and not efficient at all.
I would recommend this place for having a pint, but not for having a meal.
If you review this venue as only a bar you would get a low score, it's not the nicest looking place ever.
However it's superb as a live venue, it affordable in terms of entry fee, drink and food price and whilst the drink selection is limited, the food is great quality and you get a lot for your money.
This is a wonderful place to go to see live music and has a great atmosphere in the evening.
Only giving 1 star as there is no option to give no stars.
Avoid this place like the plague. It is a horrible, dirty, scummy pub.
The clientele is rough and that's me trying to be nice. All of the chavs from Roehampton tend to crawl up here. Avoid, Avoid,Avoid!!!!!!!!!!

Really good pub for live music and a humming atmosphere. A tad short on seating but lots of space to stand when it's really busy. Staff are lovely and friendly. Food is also apparently much better since it was done up. The decor was much more old manish when I used to go there, but now it is more young and in tone with it's live music status.

A live music pub with decades of musical history that Young’s wanted to urinate all over by turning it into a gastro pub. This would have been a real shame (and not just because gastro pubs in general suck!) and I salute their recent success in motivating their public to help keep them open as they are.
I did like the look of this pub when I visited a few weeks ago and I enjoyed my pint of ‘Special’, however I expect a pint of ‘Bloody Special’ when I pay £3.44 for it. Surely when they are charging that much for a pint they can afford to stick a couple of coins in the leccie meter? The pub was only a shade warmer than outside. The fact that all the other customers were wearing their coats reassured me that I wasn’t having a funny turn or something.
Considering how much I love music and the many years I have lived in London, it is surprising it has taken me this long to make my way to the Half Moon! It is as famous as the bands who played here. On this occasion we went to see Nick Harper who is a bit of a regular. The venue is perfect for this type of more intimate gig.
I don’t think I would come back just for a drink, even though the choice of drinks is decent and the staff very friendly and efficient. But I’ll definitely be looking out for future performances - there’s just not enough places like this left in London.
I have visited this pub on several occasions to see the Strawbs perform. This is a rightly famous live music venue, recently refurbed (or refreshed, really).
It has a dedicated live music area behind closed doors complete with its own bar and stage. This is fortunate, as they do charge for their gigs (for the Strawbs around £12 usually). The room is dark and a tadge stuffy, but fits around 100 people, I’d guess, standing.
The bar is big and serves a selection of real ales, lagers, wines and spirits, and the real ale selection is reasonable. The bar is large, and has three sides of serving area, therefore, so long as they have enough staff on, service is quick.
There is a paved 'garden’ / smoking area in the back. The pub boasts wooden floors and enormously high ceilings.
This is a good music venue, though I can’t really see myself going out of my way (as I would have to) to visit otherwise.
This pub enjoys wide fame, and it’s easy to see why. The whole establishment is divided into two sections – the bar section and the live music section. The atmosphere in the bar room is humble and wooden – it feels like you’ve stepped into a very large country pub. The live music area, while smaller than typical venues, has an air of intimacy about it. Stadium rock bands would bypass this venue, while local acts flock to play on the same stage bands like The Rolling Stones, Kate Bush and Imogen Heap and have played on.
I have only been here once but can't wait to get back it is a funky set up with great music. It is a live music venue and they seem to have created the perfect environment for it. the website is worth a look for checking out future bands http://www.halfmoon.co.uk/ most of them seem to be cover bands but they are great for a dance. There is a back room section and the front bar so you can have a break from the music in the bar area
