Early evening and the bar is filling quickly. A very pleasant place.

Hop Stuff - A.P.A. (Arsenal Pale Ale)3.80ExcellentA golden Pale Ale with good balance of hops and malty body.
Brew Buddies - IPA01 Single Hop Pilgrim IPA5.10AcceptableGolden. A rather dry IPA with a ‘leafy’ hop character.

The pub is found in Woolwich, Greater London, SE18 6GD.

Opened on 22nd October 2015 in the Woolwich Arsenal development in Major Draper Street at the end of a terrace next to the Tesco Express. Down the alley to the right of the Dial Arch pub then turn right. Downstairs is a low ceilinged bar with bare brick walls, uncovered ventilation ducting and a long bar with initially 8 handpumps but now only 4. Up a spiral staircase for extra seating and a dining area selling pizza based comestibles. Effectively the tap for the nearby Hop Stuff Brewery which eventually only produced keg beers. No longer sells cask ale. Subsequently taken over by Molson Coors when Hop Stuff went awry and now sold to Salt of Yorkshire in November 2021. January 2022 and 2 handpumps are in use.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 43 different beers and tried 17 of them.
