It doesn't look too enticing from the frontage but once inside the long extended single room was quite pleasant and much more sane than Faber Fox next door, the four cask offerings were Volden Session Ale and Spring, Roosters Capability Brown and Marble Pint, the Marble beer being in very good condition. Ten keg taps on the bar had a mix of run of the mill stuff as well as some Craft. Quite nice.

A second Antic outlet on Westow Hill, with sister pub Westow House just a short distance up the road, this is a smaller, smarter affair which struck me as a nice calm counterpoint to the bustle of their other pub. The pub has a long narrow interior with chunky bare floorboards and a servery down the right-hand side. A porch with some interesting art on display leads through double doors into the single room bar area. Long button backed banquettes follow the left-hand side of the room under bare brick walls and past a disappointingly bricked up fireplace. The banquette serves a row of small uniform tables with low stools in support and the wall has been decorated with typical Antic-style retro mirrors and a large cabinet full of dated looking ceramics and glassware. Lots of bunting hangs from the ceiling around the front door and this is mixed in with a large collection of postcards hung from lengths of string. A couple of tables with uncomfortable looking hard chairs have been squeezed into the space before the bar arrears to the right. The bar has a padded counter front and effective looking back-lit bare brick bar back. Beyond is an open kitchen and an attractive decorative ceiling. Passing through some large drapes, you enter the rear part of the room with large windows to the rear which give you some great views out over London from Crystal Palace’s elevated position. There is some decent seating back here too and was unsurprisingly the most popular spot to bag a table. An easy listening soundtrack played throughout our visit at a level that was still conducive to good conversation.
Just two ales on the bar – Volden Session and Wimbledon Common Pale Ale – with the two remaining hand pumps both out of action. The barmaid here was incredibly friendly and drew me a good pint of the Wimbledon Common which went down nicely with the burger I had from what might be best described as a ‘hipster-menu’.
I was a little sceptical at the idea of another Antic pub in Crystal Palace, but I thought this place worked really well as a different sort of venue to the sport and live music orientated Westow House. I can imagine repeat visits to this place and feel it’s a strong addition to the local pub scene.
