Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dog & Bull

For far too many years, I had avoided this market pub as I guessed that it was a rough market-stallholders local where visitors were probably not welcome. However, once I ventured, in I found it to be a very pleasant, traditional boozer. The interior has been thoroughly refurbished and partially opened out to leave an island bar with a further room to one side. Interesting features include the dark wood panelling and decorative glazing panels in the front windows. There is also a substantial patio beer garden out back. It has now been rebranded by Youngs as a Ram Pub Co outlet, but on my last visit I found the regular Ordinary and Special supplemented by Doom Bar replicated from the two banks of three handpumps. Overall, I now really like this pub.

A long standing Croydon market pub probably going back centuries, inside is rather more recent, there is an island bar with the room extending back to the rear and side. There is some clearly old wood panelling, the leaded glass front windows have interesting inserts featuring horse and ram's heads, a likely link to the local market. There are framed pictures depicting various stages of a butcher's business. Still on the market theme a wall mounted sign refers to "Pearce's Bacon and Cheese".
Despite the internal modifications you can still avoid the few high tables and stools, plenty of regular issue remain in usefully different sizes to suit groups small and large.
The inevitable music played but this time a decent 60s soul/Motown background, TV muted.
Youngs here if that's what they still are, Bitter, Special plus Hook Norton Old Hooky at £4. Liked it.

Young's pub located on the market. A bare boarded interior with an island bar. 6 real ale taps serving 3 ales doubled up on my visit.
