Mid evening visit. Good to see a good proportion of customers here are ladies, several in groups of their own.

Mid evening visit, my first here since it opened a week ago. Compact and intimate with a bar counter at an angle at the rear. Limited seating due to restricted floor space. Very friendly bar staff learning their trade and keen for suggestions for future beers. I did notice that it was the keg beers from the 6 wall taps that was outselling the handpumped cask ales by a long chalk.

Website.

The pub is found in Sidcup, Greater London, DA15 8DJ.

Micropub in converted coach company premises in Halfway Street with opened on Friday 16th March 2018. You'll find it next door to the Coop in a parade of shops. Smaller than many micropubs and serving real ales through 3 handpumps. There are 6 keg beer lines, dispensed from taps on the rear wall, which seem very popular too here. One step up to the Gents and Ladies loos at the rear.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 5 different beers and tried 3 of them.
