Evening visit until midnight close. Just the usual stalwarts seem to be in residence. Definite reduced crowd size. Should probably really have gone straight on by but did enjoy a chat with someone I see irregularly now.

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

A busy pub in Lewisham High Street that's small by Wetherspoon's standards. Bookshelves around internal pillars make views across the floor difficult. A bit like a chameleon it changes clientele during its long day, attracting market folk whilst the street market is open then a mixed group of faces later on. Here staff do get to know their customers. Sports 2 banks each of 6 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 387 times, seen 719 different beers and tried 314 of them.
