Evening until midnight (not 11.57pm) close. After an early last bell some unpleasantness until the till clock was accepted as gospel. Lousy beer range with just 1 guest one.

The pub is found in Lee Green, Greater London, SE12 8SS.

Standard smalltown Wetherspoon's fayre. Dark inside and toilets a good half mile away from the bar up a baronial hall style staircase. Outside seating provides a real hidden suntrap. 8 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 4. This Wetherspoon pub bears the name of one of England's greatest astronomers. Pub named after Edmund Halley, who gave his name to a now famous comet, and who lies buried in St Margaret's graveyard. Edmund Halley was born in 1656. His studies in astronomy and mathematics led him to be appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society, at the age of 22.
