Evening late. Slow service so just about to walk out.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Signature Brew - Candela Gold5.00AcceptableVery mediocre. Described as passionfruit golden ale. Just another boring lemon juicer near beer to me

Lovely as usual. They were playing a bit of Queen, last time they played "My ding a ling".

Website.

The pub is found in Lewisham, Greater London, SE13 6JZ.

A mildly alternative music pub, friendly staff and a mixed crowd. Nice dark wooden interior. One of the originals of Bruce's Firkin chain which then had its own in-house brewery. Barn like inside with bare boarded floors throughout, a long bar on the right which is equipped with 6 handpumps. Has a stage half way down the building for live music performances.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 4 different beers and tried 3 of them.
