A huge cavernous station pub that seems to be modeling itself as a sports bar resulting in a somewhat characterless space. There are several TV screens dotted about plus a single pool table. All handpumps were blank, so no real ale was available, not sure if this is a temporary measure but I suspect not. There were a few commonplace craft beers avaiable from the likes of Beavertown and Camden Town plus all the normal keg stuff. This pub did very little for me and I only called in here because I had an half hour train wait, I'll get my timing better next time.

This used to be an Antic pub, and although that's a few years ago now, it's still got a bit of the look. The original bare boards look to have been well used and battered over the years, although I suspect that the new pub operators may have given the ceiling a lick of paint. The central servery has drinking areas all round it, with some booths, some banquettes, but mainly normal tables and chairs for furnishings. A black and white tiled splash area surrounds the counter. All the tables had a little sprig of flowers on them, as well as a candle. There's some nice fielded panelling on the walls, although unfortunately some of it has now been painted a sort of mushroom grey, as well as a couple of excellent brick built fireplaces. It seemed that everywhere one looked you saw a poster adverising some football match or another, so obviously they're trying to attract the live sport crowd.

There were four real ales on, including Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter (£2.10 a half), but was unfortunately not in good condition, the Southwark pair of Best and Bankside Blond, and Brockley Red Ale. I didn't see a menu - although I did see the open to view kitchen around at the back - but a small blackboard behind the counter advertised chef's weekly deals, such as (Monday) "buy a burger and get a second one for £1" (Wed & Sat) "stack of buffalo wings and a pint for £10". It didn't specify what the pint was.

This massive "Brewer's Tudor" pub is a landmark on Catford Rd. It's a large area inside, and seemed a bit lifeless - a bit like my Sambrook's Porter. I'll give it another try if I'm in the area, but I don't think that I'll be making a special effort to visit again.

Solitaire Limited says it has "ambitious" plans for the Catford Bridge Tavern with a bar in the centre of the pub, a restaurant and a heated outdoor roof terrace to the rear. A planning application for the new pub is due to be handed in to Lewisham Council next month.
