Evening visit until midnight close, accompanied by a pretty deep conversation about race and religion. There is now a petition open trying to protect the status of this pub, in view of possible council plans for re-development of the site.

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

Formerly the Catford Conservative Club located at the south western end of Catford Broadway. Entry is via an alleyway. Conversion to a pub by Antic and a timely opening expected in late 2013 after Antic's loss of stewardship of the Catford Bridge Tavern just down the road. Opened Thursday 28th November 2013 initially with bar facilities only with work on the kitchen still continuing. Eclectic furnishing of the very very very shabbiest chic variety but surprisingly with a massive chandelier fixed to some open raftered roofwork. Short bar counter sports 6 handpumps. Separate ground floor room added later. Cellar is at ground floor level in a room at the back of the bar. Mini baronial staircase leads up to first floor large loos. More uncovered plaster works on walls and high ceiling than you can poke a stick at. One wall adorned with framed Private Eye magazine covers. Lunch (Saturday and Sunday) and Evening (Tuesday to Saturday only) meals introduced in March 2014 extended to 7 days a week later. A rear garden was opened in July 2014, all part of the continuing development of this venue. In 2014 a rather large bare-boarded room for extra seating opened on the first floor.

We have visited this pub 112 times, seen 271 different beers and tried 158 of them.
