Morning breakfast after being refused service at 11.01pm the night before for being a minute too late to the bar even though they didnt shut till 12.Wearing a suit from a wedding helped me not.

Evening until an un-preadvertised early closure based on avoiding problems with migrants from other pubs as they close! I was eventually served a pint after a discussion with the manager!

The pub is found in Sidcup, Greater London, DA14 6ED.

Ex Hogs Head premises on the High Street, traditionally styled. Opened April 2009. These licensed premises (47-49 High Street) were formerly two long-standing shops, part of a parade built in late Victorian times. From around 1900 until the Second World War, 47 High Street housed 'Eastmans, dyers and cleaners' business. For many years, 49 High Street was the premises of successive 'high-class tailors'. It was here that a tailor's chalk was used to mark seams and cutting lines, while a tailor's ham was used to press and shape jackets. These two former shops are close to the site of a toll booth which stood in front of 27 High Street. It was erected in the late 18th century, when High Street was part of the private road built by the New Cross Turnpike Trust. 10 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 5.

We have visited this pub 6 times, seen 25 different beers and tried 6 of them.
