About the Pub

Large 1930s Grade II listed multi-roomed pub built by Truman's Brewery and retaining many original features and fittings. The pub was the first in the country to be registered as an Asset of Community Value, was then acquired via the community right to buy provisions of the Localism Act, and re-opened in Summer 2013. See the pub's website for details of the numerous community and music events held. As the Newlands Tavern this was a famous South London "Pub Rock" music venue in the 1970s. Lots of dark wood and many original Truman's fittings. The front bar has a curved counter with 4 handpumps and there is a black and white tiled spittoon round its base. A double doored partition leads to a massive rear room with another bar counter with 4 handpumps and further tiled spittoon at its base. This room has an ornamented and curtained stage. To the right rear is another area of seating and is dominated by a massive fireplace. Truman's gold lettering remains at picture rail level in the front bar advertising its Burton and London heritage and some of its beers. There are plans to bring back the former public bar area into use (it was a licensee's flat for many years) which is currently used for storage. A real feast for the eyes of any lover of how London suburban big brewery "Improved Public House" pubs used to be. SE London CAMRA Branch runner-up Pub of the Year 2017.
