Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Great North Wood

Substantial, corner pub with two attractive façades enlivened by some hanging baskets. The interior has been given a very thorough gastro-pub makeover, with a mix of traditional and modern furniture that seems to work quite well. With plenty of windows and a reasonably high ceiling, the 'U'-shaped bar feels quite airy. There is a further table-service seating area and a smart restaurant area at first floor level, and there are also a few small tables out on the pavement. Four real ales on handpump: Runner and Lazarus from Truman's, Brixton Effra Ale and Dark Star Partridge (£4.10).

The Great North Wood is a large and fairly grand looking pub that is very close to West Norwood Train station and just up from the Horns Tavern but on the opposite side of the road.
Once inside there is a single room which is wrapped around the bar on three sides,the room is bare boarded,the seating tall tables and stools to the front and mainly normal tables and chairs elsewhere plus a free standing wooden bench seat.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Harveys Sussex Wild Hop which went down well,the other beers were Sambrooks Pumpkin Pale Ale,Twickenham Naked Ladies and Twickenham Redhead.
The pub was very busy with yummy mummys and daddies and their young children.
Background music was playing.
This is a decent enough pub to do of on a pub crawl round the area like i was.

A large high ceilinged space with a central horseshoe bar, distressed boarded floor and scrubbed tables. There are those uncomfortable high tables and stools along the run of the front windows but thankfully more standard seating elsewhere. Lots of exposed decent quality stock brickwork, a log burning stove, scores of beer bottles above the bar back and over the entrance lobby. A piano sits against a dividing partition and the room has a fair number of large potted plants. Framed colourful posters of local scenes adorn the walls while a set of staggered shelves hold some old hardbacked books.
A busy place full of a mid thirties type of crowd, many with youngsters in tow, presumably having lunched and whiling away a Saturday afternoon. Wine is heavily promoted, some sort of festival was advertised, but naturally I stuck to the beer. Four on, Belleville Battersea Brownstone plus Commonside Pale Ale (£4.10), Old Slug Porter and Sambrook's Wandle. A decent drop of local beer and a nice laid back vibe in here.
