Late evening visit. Mesmerising Irish band playing with guitar, penny whistles, bagpipes (of some sort with bladders under both arms) and flutes. At the back, next to the toilets, is a canned beer self-service sales machine.

Late evening bus change visit. Was given a taster of a PWA (Paddys With Attitude) Brewery 4.7% Tart Pale Ale and it surely was tart. Ran out when the next customer asked for it!

Speculative visit in the hope of finding something brewed on site. Bingo – there is a PWA beer available. Luckily it’s not my round as it was not cheap.
BeerABVScoreNotes
RedWillow - Headless Mosaic3.80ExcellentGolden and hazy. The great taste of Mosaic hops.
Cellar Boys (formerly PWA (Paddys With Attitude)) - Double Big Juicy 7.40ExcellentFrom key-keg. A turbid, amber, strong IPA in the growing ‘London Murky’ style. Tropical fruit flavours. We thought it was really good and told the guv’nor so.

I’d been itching to come here since PP’s report last month. Unfortunately there was no home-brew available today. Pub much gentrified from the last time I was down this way.

Evening until midnight close. Must have passed this thousands of times in the last 50 years but first visit having heard of its relaunch and of it having an in-house brewery. Good chat with the brewer and tried his keg New England IPA and, from an impressive 4 way T-bar, several very expensive Kernel keg beers.

Website.

The pub is found in New Cross, Greater London, SE14 5AA.

Relaunched in late 2016 with an emphasis on keg, bottled and canned beers. In spring 2017 it was reported to have commissioned an in-house brewery in the basement, initially called PWA (Paddys With Attitude) and renamed in 2018 to Cellar Boys, its beer sold in house here in keg form but may be brewed elsewhere. Accommodation, letting rooms upstairs, is a quite separate business with its own entrance. 2 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 5 of them.
