Website.

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 271 times, seen 610 different beers and tried 254 of them.
