Website.

The pub is found in Eltham, Greater London, SE9 1BW.

Located in the High Street of Eltham on a traffic lighted corner opposite Eltham Church. One of the smallest Wetherspoon pubs adorned with 7 handpumps. Opened in May 1993. The usual upstairs trek to toilets. Food hours seem non standard for a 'Spoon's here, so check times with site if food is important to your visit.

We have visited this pub 20 times, seen 63 different beers and tried 19 of them.
