The pub is found in Catford, Greater London, SE6 4AF.

Opened in 2000 as a conversion from a former shop this pub extends a long way back from its frontage to (a rarity for 'Spoon's) ground floor toilets at the very rear. 10 handpumps on the bar counter in 2 banks each of 5. Located in Rushey Green this Wetherspoon pub takes its name from the building's location, on what was once the coaching route between London and Rye (Kent). No standing at the bar, after being served a drinks order, is permitted.

We have visited this pub 29 times, seen 78 different beers and tried 22 of them.
