A back street pub with fewer customers than some of the others at the time of my late afternoon/early evening crawl of the area. The bar counter is quite small, and gives the room the feel of a hotel bar in a run down seaside resort. The strange drapes, all pelmet and no curtains, above the slightly curved front window, are something to be seen, and on the walls I also observed two technical drawings of Tower Bridge and of the Elizabeth Tower of the Palace of Westminster, the latter being incorrectly labelled Big Ben. Three hand pumps offered Fullers London Pride, Shepherd Neame Spitfire and Timothy Taylor Landlord, typical of the mainstream beers to be seen in the pubs in this area. I went for the last named, which I thought was in good condition, though while I was drinking my half I observed a fresh barrel being pulled through, which says something about the throughput here (or about my taste buds, of course).

Just off the main drag. Quite a small bar (didn’t visit upstairs) serving 3 real ales.

Indeed, as mentioned there was a pub here by 1755 knows as the Codgers Hall, later renamed the White Bear and demolished in 1895. My guess is that the current pub dates from the 1960s/70s and I can't for the life of me figure out what the significance is of the gold reliefs showing athletes and a fat Buddha around the top's perimeter.
A modern and very bland interior with both conventional tables/chairs and some high stools/tables, with a small bar at the end and an upstairs bar.
Ales: Greene King's IPA, London Glory and Hardy & Hanson's (Greene King) Olde Trip which was about as ok as it's ever going to get.
This is a rather dreary area with no real reason to visit and given that this is a dreary pub in a dreary area, I don't plan to return.
