Immaculate back street (where the houses are no doubt in the millions!) pub.

Saturday afternoon and I was the only punter. Number of humans doubled by the silent barstaff, obviously wondering how she was going to get through the day.

Its a shame, as the decor and beer (shepherds neame) were both first class. You could even save the price of the Times, read theirs and help contribute to the local economy.

This is still a Shepherd Neame pub, which had on Master Brew and Whitstable Bay Pale Ale on when we dropped in there on Thursday evening. Food seems to be an odd mix of “Indian” style or gastro. You could have game pie or Sri Lankan chicken curry for the same price - £8.95. One of the starters also caught my eye - "roasted figs wrapped in Parma ham with blue cheese" at £5.25. Sounds delicious, but I resisted the temptation on this occasion.

It's an old backstreet pub set in an attractive residential road, but as far as I could see there's nothing left of its original pub ambience. There's some modern art type decor, including a large (circa 6' x 6') canvass screen with some sort of representation of Greenwich in mainly green splodges. Fine if you like that sort of thing. Furnishings are basic tables and chairs, with a couple of sofas, and with the seemingly obligatory flashing fairy lights. The walls have modern looking light pine panelling on the lower levels. For some reason it all seems a bit false in here, and felt a bit like sitting in a Chinese takeaway. For me the best thing was the green banded windows, suggesting that it may have been a Charrington's pub in the past.

The exterior of this pub suggests something special inside, but I was disappointed. The Whitstable Bay Pale Ale was just OK, but I don't expect to pay a return visit any time soon.

Nice location but very average and rather characterless.
