Used to be decent considering the low price paid. But nowadays you can get a lot better at the many local cafes. Food is reheated (think Iceland but not as nice). And the beer isn't even well kept anymore. Disappointing, to put it generously. And...More

Have been here numerous times and always a pleasant and relaxing experience. Staff are very efficient, good choice of beer, excellent prices and customers are generally the better behaved variety, unlike the sister pub in Orpington High Street!
