About the Pub

Located right in the middle of Plumstead Common this is an historic pub. Photographs show it was once tied to the Cannon Brewery then to Beasley's Plumstead Brewery, until 1963 when taken over by Courage. The pub developed from an 18th century windmill, the core of which still remains and towers over the pub building. Quite modestly furnished inside as one L shaped bar with a separate function room. For many years the pub has been dedicated to real ales and has regularly been in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Often you will find characterful and conversational locals in residence. The publican has collected some historical photographs and papers about the pub which you might ask if you could look through. The Old Mill is traditionally known as one of the 5 Plumstead Common Idlers - in its case as it had never ground the corn but, of course, one might argue it had or least part of its building had. 6 handpumps. In addition to the landline also contactable via mobile 07508 790635. Guide dogs welcomed.
