The pub is found in Lewisham, Greater London, SE13 6NR.

Formerly The Coach & Horses and recently re-opened as part of the "Antic Collective". A large pub in Lewisham High Street, just south of the Ladywell baths complex and H.E. Olby's Plumbing Centre. One very large bar area with lots of floor space. One feature of the newly re-opened house is an array of 5 handpumps and the introduction of a gamut of guest beers from London and more widespread and the sale of a hand pumped cider. A welcome addition to the Lewisham real ale scene. Has a bar billiards table in use and a table football table. Regular live bands play and a small dancing area is provided. Antic closed the pub on 30th October 2016 in "preparation" for its opening of a currently closed pub in the Lewisham market area.

We have visited this pub 183 times, seen 307 different beers and tried 184 of them.
