A couple of us gathered here when emerging from Bermodsey tube station before heading off to visit several of the breweries on the mile and I would concur with PSM below that Antic seem to be making a decent fist of this one.
Granted we were in soon after its lunchtime opening and virtually the only ones in, so there were no service issues, and were able to stroll around the pleasant mult-room layout well described by PSM below.
All six pumps in operation on this Saturday lunchtime and alongside the same Volden Session, Adnams Ghost Ship and St Austell Tribute mentioned below there were two of my favourite beers in the form of Oakham Citra and Titanic Plum Porter and a cider on the last pump.
The Plum porter was in fine form and this proved to be a very good launching point for what turned out to be an excellent drinking day.

Located just down the road from Bermondsey tube station, this is a huge Brewer's Tudor pub, formerly known as the Gregorian Arms, but now arm-less under the stewardship of the reliable Antic pub chain. The pub is set a fair way back from the main road, which means there is room for a large pavement seating area out the front, including a sizeable overspill space over an adjacent road, which was packed with people on a warm, post-work summer's evening. entering into the pub, you find a multiple room interior with plenty of interesting period features and all the usual oddities you come to associate with this chain. The front room houses the main bar and has nice parquet flooring, old-school floral wallpaper and some limited banquette and chair seating options. The servery, set along the rear wall, has a pleasing traditional counter and bar back that has presumably been salvaged from the pub's previous incarnation. To the left, there's a nice partitioning screen with a doorway leading through into a similarly furnished side room with more of the same seating as in the main bar. Moving past the servery, you enter the rear room which is the largest and has tatty banquette seating around the perimeter and metal framed chairs elsewhere. decor in here is similar to the bar area with the exception of some smart wood panels in places. A row of wall mounted plates runs around the room just below ceiling level and there are various deer skulls and old portraits knocking about in typical Antic style. A nice fireplace on the back wall has a boar's head above and a stuffed bird to one side. I spotted at least one TV screen which remained switched off in favour of what I would describe as a jazz-funk soundtrack. There is an open kitchen to the left and a quick glance at the menu showed most meals were available for £10.50. One final room, a side lounge, can be found through a door to the left, where sofas seem to be the order of the day, and a quick trip to the gents unearthed some great tiling along the passageway leading there.
Six handpulls dispensed Volden Session, Adnams Ghost Ship, St Austell Tribute and Bath Gem with two pumps not utilised. The Ghost Ship was £4.00 for a pint and despite the hot weather, was served in fine condition, allowing it to slip down nicely as I cooled down in the rear lounge.
This felt like a worthy Antic project, with them having breathed life back into the sort of large roadside pub that is rapidly heading for extinction across the capital. They've created a pleasant multiple room pub which merits a bit of exploration and paired this with well kept beer, resulting in a pub that I'm sure will reward repeat visits.

I'm not sure this is an Antic pub now, although there are some quirky features, a massive Boar's head over the fireplace and some collections of entomology on the walls, most other things about this large pub seemed quite normal,in fact rather dull, including the naff music and beer selection,Butcombe Bitter,Bombardier,Pride, Adnams Ghostship and unfortunately a turned St Austell Proper Job clip. The Adnams beer was indeed dull. I didn't particularly enjoy this pub.
