The ales on here were Timothy Taylor Landlord, Hopback Summer Lightning, and Skinner’s Cornish Knocker (£4.10 a pint). There were single-sheet menus on most of the tables, with the food having a big US influence, with burgers and “dogs” being the main staples.

It doesn’t look as if this pub has changed much since previous revewers’ visits. Like so many pubs this one has been completely opened up into one room, with a central horseshoe bar. There’s nothing original inside, but some of the windows still had their green banded glazing, intimating that it was once a Charrington’s pub. I reckon they’ve gone for the American diner look, with some bright steel pedestal tables and brewery adverts on the bar counter front, including one for the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii. On the left are a couple of sofas in front of the large brick built fireplace (helpfully with the word HOT on the chimney breast) but also banquettes and some normal tables and chairs. There’s a mixed bag of décor – a framed photo of Sean Connery as 007, some unintellible arty prints, as well as several musical instruments. I saw quiz nights and live music advertised.

It’s all a bit brash, but a comfortable enough place nonetheless and handy for a swift one (even if £4.10 a pint is a tad expensive – in my opinion) before catching a train from Ladywell station a few yards down the road.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Ladywell Tavern

I quite liked this place - yes, it has a somewhat 'straight from the gastro-pub design manual' look, but the staff were friendly and efficient. The atmosphere in the 'J'-shaped bar was also much more relaxed than many pubs in the Lewisham area. Three beers available on handpump - Otter Bitter, Harveys and Ringwood Fortyniner (£3.40, and served in the right glass).

This is one of those pubs that seems to be trying to be different or trendy, shabby kind of chic, black painted wooden floor, the walls and bar front are painted a kind of olive green. The bar back has old 12" album covers above on a shelf. They also do that thing I've noticed of late where each table has completely unmatching chairs however there are no dreadful high tables or similar.
Having said that, it has its plus points. Good beer being the first, two on, unusually for the area both not often found, Brakspears Oxford Gold and Woodforde Wherry. The Wherry was excellent, even if it was £3:30, it was however served in a branded glass, .
The bar is central and the room wraps around it, but there is a feel of different areas, especially to the left as the bar doesn't continue round this side. This area has an exposed brick fireplace, and a couple of Chesterfield sofas either side. A large choice of board games are available here plus a shelf of books.
The main area opposite the bar contains an old HMV style gramophone with a horn, a chrome finished American style juke box and an upright piano.
The front windows have narrow green stained glass inserts with amber corner sections, possibly a former Charrington's house I'm guessing.
They advertise art exhibitions here, and there were a few pretty decent looking modern examples on display.
For the fresh air types or smokers, there is a small paved and walled courtyard to the rear.
I'm not usually too fond of these modernised faux chic type of places but I didn't mind it here maybe because it seemed a half way between traditional and messed around and plus the beer was decent and service good and friendly. Near Ladywell Station, and worthy of a look in.
