Dark Star - Hylder Blonde4.20Good
London Beer Factory - Beyond the Pale4.20GoodIn good nick but yet another boring straw coloured citrus "beer"
Volden - Session Ale3.80Not Tried
Two Tribes (formerly King Beer) - Jago IPA (UnBarred series)5.00Not TriedReally can't track down this crew, they are very secretive as to provenance so I won't touch them with a barge pole or my tongue. I suspect a link to King of Horsham and it may, effectively, be them under a brand re-naming.

The pub is found in Lewisham, Greater London, SE13 6NR.

Formerly The Coach & Horses and recently re-opened as part of the "Antic Collective". A large pub just south of the Ladywell baths complex and H.E. Olby's Plumbing Centre. One very large bar area with lots of floor space. One feature of the newly re-opened house is an array of 5 handpumps and the introduction of a gamut of guest beers from London and more widespread and the sale of a hand pumped cider. A welcome addition to the Lewisham real ale scene. Has a bar billiards table in use and a table football table. Regular live bands play and a small dancing area is provided. Antic closed the pub on 30th October 2016 in "preparation" for its opening of a currently closed pub in the Lewisham market area.

We have visited this pub 183 times, seen 307 different beers and tried 184 of them.
