Early morning after midnight visit with Thistly Cross cider trumping the real ales, Mexican wall or no Mexican wall.

Evening visit until midnight close and no rush to leave. Intention for brief visit was ditched after meeting some local CAMRA branch types with much news to catch up on.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Truman's - Waterloo Sunset4.20ExcellentOdd name for an allegedly Belgian style beer until pointed out later by several contributors to this site that Waterloo is in Belgium too (doh). Very good clean tasting though. Mine was last out of cask
Greene King - Abbot Ale5.00Not TriedRan out as I ordered
Ringwood - Fortyniner4.90Not TriedA compadre ordered one and left half as not being off but not being right
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried

14 Sep 2017 (Philip Pirrip)
Evening until midnight close. No beer to tickle my fancy so ciders of Swedish and Scottish origins suffice.

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 278 times, seen 625 different beers and tried 260 of them.
