Mid afternoon fairly quiet a few other drinkers dotted about in this incongruously located palatial suburban pub.

Late lunchtime and very quiet. Bears no resemblance to what I remember but no where near as bad as I was expecting. A very opulent refurb considering its residential location.

Evening 1045 pm. Penultimate visit was over 30 years ago on the Young's 135 trail. This unsuccessful visit will be my last. Service had stopped half an hour early tonight owing to lack of trade!

The pub is found in Lee, Greater London, SE12 0AJ.

In Burnt Ash Hill in a residential area this was originally a multi-roomed pub but now converted to a single ground floor area. Large garden area at the front and, unusually for a London pub, there is a car park at the rear, 6 handpumps. Re-opened in August 2015 after extensive refurbishment.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 7 different beers and tried 2 of them.
