Evening until 11pm close. Nothing much ever changes here but the rare enamel outline Courage cockerel on the outside front wall has been covered up with plastic signs. I hope it is still underneath.

Evening visit. Not been here for maybe 8 years but nothing has changed. Fixtures, fittings, furnishings, barman and the core of mainly mature customers all the same in a fast changing World. I recommend a visit here to all this site's browsers.

The final pub in our Lewisham tour. Took a while to get here as we had to walk over Black Heath. The pub was quite when we arived but a thunderstorm soon gave us some entertainment.

Caledonian - Deuchars IPA3.80ExcellentThis was probably the best pint of Deuchars IPA I've ever had. Subtle mandarine orange flavours witha subtle warming hop finish.
