Early morning after midnight visit until 1am close, during which time half a dozen fire engines parked almost opposite to fight a kebab shop fire emanating acrid smoke. Road closed, late night buses diverted.

Banks's - Young Henrys Real Ale4.00ExcellentReal excellent sharp bitter with floral hop nose. One wonders why someone like Banks's can not make a beer like this in its own portfolio

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 474 times, seen 749 different beers and tried 328 of them.
