Second venue in this crawl around Herne / Tulse Hill this evening. This was a rather plush venue with nice seating options, stools with backs at the counter all along the external windows (overlooking the park in my positioning), high tables (you had the circular or oblong option) with more traditional bar stools, dining tables with traditional dining chairs, leather banquettes around the internal walls. In other words this was effing seating heaven and literally had something for all seating fans. And I don’t mean a random mish mash of tables and chairs this was beautifully co-ordinated. It was busy and became busier during my 6.30-7.15 stay here and the initially quite loud but tasteful music eventually got drowned out by the well heeled of this part of South London plotting world domination. Plenty of keg options but cask was TT Landlord and their own labelled bitter - the Florence Bitter, OK but nothing special at a tad under 4% abv. Assume this is some GK brewed swill but nothing to demark it on the clip. In reality I would have given it a 5.5 as I feel I would return to a 6 but I can’t see myself returning here but it is slightly better than a 5. I would be disappointed if I didn’t find a better one this evening.

Another much-refurbished pub, which in this case has gone for the posh dining room look with polished floors, dark woodwork and smart furnishings. There is a nice high ceiling but it is painted dark brown. I can't say I was over-impressed by having to wait for the barman to serve a pot of tea to the table in the corner, nor by the rather dodgy TT Landlord (the other cask option being the GK house ale). The surroundings are not unpleasant though.

We called on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the live jazz band, three young lads from Greenwich Music College. Beer wise, we went for the Brixton Atlantic APA and one of their own beers on keg, which was the Craft Academy Ice Breaker. I thought my Craft Academy Ice Breaker was a very good beer and would call again for more good beer and some excellent jazz.
