About the Pub

A micropub which opened on 13th September 2017 in a former lingerie and hosiery business. It is quite large as micropubs go with two rooms, both are bare board floored. The front one contains the bar counter and there's a smaller drinking area, down a small ramp, to the rear. The interior has a basic but comfortable feel with exposed brickwork and furniture and fixtures fabricated from scaffolding boards. Seating is at high back wooden wall-mounted settles and high tables. There is an extensive range of both real ales (sometimes even as many as ten) and ciders served on gravity dispense from a temperature controlled room behind the bar counter. They are listed on blackboards above the bar counter and to the left of it and in addition a daily detailed real ale tasting notes list is readily available. A range of wines, up to a dozen gins and several other spirits are also on offer. At times an order-in pizza delivery service is partnered here, ask behind bar for details. 4 pint take-home containers available with a small discount on the price of the contents. Lined glasses for all pints and halves ensuring full measures every time. A great asset to the area, especially as the pub intends to always have a balance of pale and dark ales on offer from near and far. Mobile phones to be set to silent please. Background recorded music may often be playing. Card payments accepted. There may be a 5p rounding price mark-up on some half pint measures. SPBW London Pub of the Year 2019 - a great achievement in the first year of opening. 2019 CAMRA SE London Branch Pub of the Year and its 2019 and 2020 Cider Pub of the Year too.
