This is still a Greene King pub according to the signage, and although the interior is as described by Pubsignman, I think it must have improved since his visit. The ales on were How Green is Your Valley, from Kite Brewery apparently in conjunction with Greene King; St Austell Tribute; plus Gwynt Y Ddraig Fiery Fox cider (6.5%) also on handpump. None of the GK usual suspects were on, but I did see an Old Golden Hen pumpclip reversed. And the staff didn't seem surly on my visit. This is branded as a "Flame Grill", and the glossy menu made the claim that that their dishes are grilled to perfection. As you would expect it's a pub grub heavy menu, and nothing wrong with that in my opinion.

The pub itself is a majestic, enormous edifice dominating that part of the main road - no backstreet boozer this. The interior has been modernised considerably as previously described. As you enter the bar counter faces you; the flooring here is a mix of bare boards and flagstones; and furnishings around the place ar a mix of normal tables and chairs and tall tables/tall stools. In all then, a typical high street pub. Overall I reckon that this is an “OK” pub, even though it has little of the traditional pub character that I appreciate.

This Greene King pub with adjacent theatre is well positioned within easy walking distance of three train stations; Crofton Park, Brockley and Honor Oak Park. Despite the fact that the pub has been opened out just about as much as is possible, the servery acts as a partitioning between distinct front and back rooms. The front half of the pub comprises of a long wooden floored space with a carpeted raised area under the front windows. Décor is smart and contemporary and there is a good amount of seating throughout. The eye is drawn to the right hand wall, which is covered with dark wood panels and coloured glass and gives access to the small 50 seat theatre that puts on regular productions. The rear half of the pub is full of standard tables and chairs and there are a lot of unrelated pictures covering the walls. The space is effectively an overspill for the more attractive front room and has room for a lot of people. Doors lead out to a paved and partially covered courtyard and a separate door seemed to lead to a different area dedicated to smokers.
Beer-wise there were just the three Greene King regulars: IPA, Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen. I gave the Abbot a try and thought it was in decent enough shape. The bar staff were all wearing branded uniform and seemed to be quite a surly bunch.
Despite having had almost all of the character ripped out of it, this place still had a bit of a spark of life left in it as well as the unusual addition of the theatre, but with a poor range of beer and unfriendly staff it's not worth much more than a cursory glance.
