“More like a hotel than a B&B, nice people”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Stayed here quite a bit recently and would like to say a big thanks for the care. As you read on the other reviews:
Big rooms
Clean
For being above a pub surprisingly quiet even when they have a disco on (some saturdays)
Bathrooms basic but fine
Flat screen, tea / coffee and water etc.
They have 4 rooms and external access so you don't have to go through the pub and come and go as you please.
Breakfast is traditional B&B type breakfast, and usually will have a paper as well for you to read. Parking is available on street.
This will be a perfect location if you are coming for the olympics or if you are doing the O2 arena. Walking distance to local train station.

Room Tip: Best room is probably room 4, however single beds so if a couple maybe not so preferable.

We stayed 1 night at the Summerfield as we were in London to see a concert at the O2 arena. The room was lovely, very comfortable. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bottle of water, biscuits in room with kettle. Hairdryer in cupboard, and iron, ironing board and trouser press on landing for use.

We heard no noise from the pub at all.

Breakfast was served in the pub bar, the breakfast was the best we had ever had, lovely thick bacon and lovely sausages. I had a pot of tea to myself and my partner had a coffee with no problem asking for a second.

Very helpful owners and staff.

We got a taxi to the O2 which cost £11, but it is possible to get the train/subway if you know which one to catch.

Highly recommended.

Arrived after 11pm in the evening. Given a warm welcome by landlord and regulars. Taken up to room which we were very happy with. Found room to be clean, spacious and comfy. En suite bathroom was spot on. Full English breakfast was both generous and delicious, service was excellent.
Pub was delightful. Enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere. Not only allowed us to bring "take away" into pub, but provided plates and cutlery which they cleared away for us at the end.

In short, rooms were spot on, breakfast was excellent, hospitality and atmosphere were super, value was outstanding. We will be staying here again the next time we visit London.

Dean and Andrea Brown,

North Wales.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 4

Rooms were nice, breakfast very good, but totally over shadowed by the the landlord who I can honestly say was the rudest person I have ever met in all the times I have been staying in hotels / B&B's and I can only put this down to the fact that he didn't like who and what he thought we were, he knows what we mean and I wouldn't reccommend this place to anybody, he doesn't deserve the business.

Accommodation is surprisingly sparse in SE London, and the high prices reflect this. The Summerfield therefore represents good value. The staff are pleasant, but unobtrusive as they are busy running a pub. The rooms are at the top of the building, approached by an outside staircase, which is good when creeping in late at night but less so when it's raining. Our room was palatial in size with a spacious bathroom. It would have been nice if the radiator valves had been turned on to the right setting in advance. Breakfast in the bar was cooked to order using very high quality ingredients. The location is convenient if that's where you need to be for some reason (ours was the Rivoli Ballroom) and the street parking is easy enough. The pub can get very noisy but the rooms are well insulated so this is not a problem. We'll be happy to stay here again.

The Summerfield Tavern is a pub in S.E. London with four lovely rooms above. The rooms are really big (by London standards especially!!); they are clean and modern with flat screen TVs and nice solid furniture as well as tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water. The bathrooms are a decent size and have complimentary shower gel. The breakfast is delicious and the staff are really friendly!

All in all it is a really excellent value place to stay - it surpasses anything you could get for the same price in central London. It is however further out of london than the underground but it is only a ten minute walk to the station and that gets you into the city in approx 20 mins. The only problem with the pub was the traffic noise - there was no air-con so we had to have the windows open but that also let all the sound in!! I'm sure the noise wouldn't be a problem if you kept the windows closed but then I'd suggest asking for the fan in summer-time - I know some rooms had one.

Highly recommended!! Would stay again!!
