Evening visit until 11pm close. The lady Guv was ribbed for doing too much tidying. The Guv has started trialling his race spile on his first cask.

Got the thumbs up at the door for a late evening entry. Sound absorbing panels are on site and ready to be fixed. Hearing rave reviews from others here "treated" myself to a 33cl canned Brick Brewery Citrus Sour but at four sovs fifty. Massive citrus notes making it just a sharp palate curling citrus fruit drink not a beer. Pity the can labelling is light light blue on light light light blue.

The pub is found in Eltham, Greater London, SE9 5PR.

In Court Yard just off the High Street the former Crown pub has been part transformed following a wider development of the entire premises. A small bar, along the lines of the Micropub style, which opened in April 2018 selling cask ales and ciders / perries served on gravity dispense from a cooled small walk-in cellar room behind the bar counter and with 11 keg beer taps on the back wall too. Seating is at trestle style tables and low chairs. The original ground floor pub frontage has been retained.

We have visited this pub 12 times, seen 26 different beers and tried 15 of them.
