Evening until 11pm close. In the swelter the 322 bus down and back up Gipsy Hill were essentials. The open-to-view kitchen has gone since my last visit.

Evening until close. First visit to the new premises. Easily gets crowded upstairs. I do wish the option of handled jug or straight glass was offered on ordering not just a jug default given.

The pub is found in Upper Norwood, Greater London, SE19 1PL.

The original Late Knights Brewery Beer Rebellion "pop-up" pub at No. 128 Gipsy Hill closed in October 2014 and was relocated next door to here at No. 126 in a former Coomes bookmaker's. Right opposite Gipsy Hill railway station. An open-to-view kitchen initially installed was later removed. With demise of Late Knights Brewery in August 2016 ownership and beer range changed. Closed Friday 19th October 2018. Re-opened end May 2019 having been taken over by the Bullfinch Brewery to convert into a tap room. Initially 15 keg taps but talk of 2 handpumps being installed for cask beer sale. Card payments only here, no cash accepted.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 11 different beers and tried 4 of them.
