Nice locals pub.Ugly red frontage but clean tidy 2 room interior with good rear outside area for smokers(or indeed anyone).Quiet on my visit.Loads of Belgian beers in the fridge (how quaint) 5 cask beers on but from the second division of brewers so I went for Plato brewery on keg.Nice and reasonable price.Casks from Bluestone.Conwyn,2 from Southwark.

Looks like its had a make over. Immaculate, inside and out.

Traditional pub - possibly the only London pub with a Bar Skittles Table?

Four for five real ales on. I went safe for a perfect pint of London Pride at £3.80.

Worth seeking out. A near religious experience with the stained glass window and pew type seating. My type of Church.

They had five ales on in here when I visited Wednesday lunchtime - London Pride, Colchester Diesel, Hogsback TEA, Mauldon Mole Trap and Clarence & Frederick Golden Ale (£3 a pint). I had a pint of the Clarence & Frederick which, while a little hazy, was a tasty hoppy summer style ale. I didn'e eat in here, but I did see a chalkboard on the wall advertising sarnies at £3.50 and pub grub main meals at around £6 - £7. There's a bit of outside seating at the back, and there were some newspapers for customers to read.

This is not only the best pub (by a country mile) in Deptford, it's the only decent pub there and was a welcome sight after the depressing walk up Deptford High St and spotting at least four closed pubs, with only the uninspiring White Swan bucking the trend. This pub hasn't changed appreciably since my last visit some five years ago (which is a very good thing indeed). The layout is the same with the separate room on the right that still contains the bar billiards table, and with traditional furnishings throughout.

This is a reasonably priced, clean and simple pub that does decent ale. That works for me. Definitely worth the walk from Deptford Station.
