Pitcher and Piano

Right next to Richmond Bridge, this pub/bar has only two indoor tables, the rest of the seating is terraced out the front, although its quite well enclosed should the weather turn sour.
The bar-staff are employed for their facial hair styles and pretentious drink pouring 'skills', after which they will give you back your change on a silver tray, suggesting they should be tipped for doing their job.
It was impressively busy for a Tuesday night but we managed to find a place at the top of the terrace. Unfortunately on our right we had the tenacious smell of cigar smoke from a bald European man, and to our left we had a waft of cigarette smoke from two middle-aged 'birds' sharing a bottle of cheap wine. By 11 O'clock closing, the three of us inhaled enough smoke to power a steam boat down the Thames back home.
