A locals' pub tucked behind Woolwich Arsenal station, featuring one large room, tidily restored to perhaps 1980s condition with conventional tables in the entre and a row of banquettes down the side. There is also a small alcove room behind the bar but this did not seem used other than for storage. At the back is a small outdoor area fenced off from the Wilkos car park. Alongside the usual keggery there are 3 handpumps, which at time of visit were badged for Doom Bar, Wainwrights and Boondoggle, although only the latter was on. Fair condition though. Food restricted to paninis and sandwiches.

There were three ales when I visited last week - Doom Bar, Caledonian Flying Scotsman, and Hancock's HB (£1.30 a half), plus a draft cider. I didn't see any menus, but I did spot one chap tucking into what looked like a bowl of stew. I certainly wasn't as lucky as the previous reviewer who got given free ham sandwiches.

This is a single-room pub, and is still very basic in a traditional way. It's still bare-boarded with mainly normal tables and chairs in the middle of the room, with red plastic upholstered banquettes around the sides. There were a couple of TVs on, bothing showing horse racing. The one with the sound on was being watched intently by a small group of punters. Several Irish accents were detected. Boxes of London Drinkers were on the bar counter, which is obviously a sign of a decent pub.

This is a basic, yet traditional, pub which might be better enjoyed if you were known, and were a member of the crowd. But three ales on is good going, and the (admittedly low ABV) Hancock's at £1.30 a half is a good bet.

The Bull Tavern is a corner pub that is situated at the side of Woolwich Arsenal DLR station.
Once inside there is a very large single oblong shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded the seating normal tables and chairs which were all the same style,there is a small TV to the left which was showing BBC news.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Shepherd Neame Master Brew which went down very well,the other beer was GK IPA.
I was offered a free sandwich by the friendly bar lady,when i said i was only having a quick half she still gave me a really nice ham salad sandwich,when i took my empty glass back to the bar she gave me another ham salad sandwich which i thought was a really nice touch.
The pub was almost empty on my Saturday dinner visit apart from one other customer which is a shame.
The room is probably a bit too big to get a decent atmosphere.
