Estate agents board outside proclaims it's sold to become a four bedroomed house. It was still going strong this afternoon but the end is nigh.

What a waste.

This pub has re-opened since Nick’s visit in June 2011, as I paid my long overdue return visit last week. It doesn’t seem that anything drastic has been done to it during its closure, as it appeared to me to be the same unpretentious boozer that I was last in a couple of years ago. There was still just the one ale on – London Pride, which I reckon is an improvement on the Courage Best that was available on my previous visit. It was a very reasonable £2.90 a pint, but I think I struck lucky in visiting during the happy hour (two actually 5 – 7 PM weekdays) advertised above the bar counter, where there is 50p off beers. I still like this pub, and reckon it’s a decent place to escape to for a quiet pint.

This was the last pub I needed to knock off all the SE1's. I found it to be charming and so old fashioned and all the better for it. Popped in again a week later and the landlady asked how I was and that it was nice to see me again! Can't say you get that too often these days. Lovely place.
