Late visit across midnight. Led by the scruff of the neck to an obscure drinking corner as all my usual middle pillars were occupied. "Social distancing".

One pinter early morning after midnight visit. Thriving, and running table service staff off their feet.

Website.

The pub is found in Lewisham, Greater London, SE13 6JP.

A busy pub in Lewisham High Street that's small by Wetherspoon's standards. Bookshelves around internal pillars make views across the floor difficult. A bit like a chameleon it changes clientele during its long day, attracting market folk whilst the street market is open then a mixed group of faces later on. Here staff do get to know their customers. Sports 2 banks each of 6 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 405 times, seen 720 different beers and tried 314 of them.
