After midnight early morning visit. Had to turn Thistly Cross cider clip round myself as not available, why can't Spoon's staff do this?

Hop Stuff - Renegade IPA5.60GoodI had heard the recipe for this beer had been tweaked. Certainly this version had distinct floral hop notes which I don't remember previously

Evening until midnight close. Ditto to yesterday the imbibation of fermented apple juice trumped the poor beer range on offer.

Evening until midnight close. The grim beer range once more lead me up the Thistly Cross and Old Rosie cider routes.

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

A busy pub that's small by Wetherspoon's standards. Bookshelves around internal pillars make views across the floor difficult. A bit like a chameleon it changes clientele during the day attracting market folk whilst the street market is open then a mixed group of faces later on. Here staff do get to know their customers. Sports 2 banks each of 6 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 256 times, seen 595 different beers and tried 250 of them.
