Evening until 11pm close. A very enthusiastic and cask ale knowledgeable barman was serving me.

Otter - Ale4.50GoodNot bad.. Malty bittersweet taste. Almost berry like.. Kinda like un ripe Strawberry's sweet yet tart. Quite a lot of malty body.

After work quiet atmosphere. Mainly passing traders popping in for the swift pint with a mix of students.

Rudgate - Ruby Mild4.40ExcellentRich and malty. This mild surprised me with a mouth full of bitter fruits. Pretty perfect temperature, possibly a touch cold. Crystal clear. Very drinkable

Thwaites - Nutty Black3.30ExcellentI hate to admit it but this was really good. Perfect form, possibly the nicest pint i've ever had in this pub.. The landlord let slip that Thornbridge Jaipur is due on shortly!!! YER!

JW Lees (see also Lees) - John Willie's4.50GoodI was fairly delighted with this given past experiences in the Queens Head. Nice temperature, although possibly a tad cold. Good well rounded beer. Definately goldings hops on the back of the throat. Crystal clear.. again makes a change for the queens.. !

Large spacious pub on the High Street, lots of seating areas and large tarmaced area at the back. Up to 3 real ales on. Early Saturday evening it was pretty quiet

The pub is found in Chislehurst, Greater London, BR7 5AN.

Your fairly regular town pub in the High Street. Busy as hell on Thurs / Fri / Sat evenings, however a brief trip on the way back from work for a swift pint or two is always a good time as it's nice and quiet! 11 handpumps although the 3 at the back only show pumpclips that are coming on soon. Small discount on real ale prices for card carrying CAMRA members.

We have visited this pub 10 times, seen 19 different beers and tried 10 of them.
