The pub is found in Eltham, Greater London, SE9 5PR.

In Court Yard just off the High Street the former Crown pub has been part transformed following a wider development of the entire premises. A small bar, along the lines of the Micropub style, which opened in April 2018 selling cask ales and ciders / perries served on gravity dispense from a cooled small walk-in cellar room behind the bar counter and with 11 keg beer taps on the back wall too. Seating is at trestle style tables and low chairs. The original ground floor pub frontage has been retained.

We have visited this pub 31 times, seen 55 different beers and tried 34 of them.
