Young's Bitter, Special Guest Beers (2) Westons Old Rosie Cider
Parts of this pub date from 1815 and it once incorporated a brewhouse and bakery. Today the pub has been much altered and this Young's outpost has an attractive red brick and half-timbered exterior which conceals a central servery adjoined by at least five interconnecting bars and seating areas, each with its own character and atmosphere. The largest bar is the Garden bar to the rear, and this has a small wood-burning stove plus plenty of mismatched wooden tables. The pub was once the terminus of London General bus route 180 (later 80A) and there was a semi-circular bus pull-in immediately in front of the pub. A large garden at the back hosts barbecues and has a Burger Shack in the spring and summer months; there is also plenty of seating outside the front of the pub. Food is served 10-9 Monday to Thursday, 10-10 Friday and Saturday and 12-9 Sunday. One of the guest beers is almost always from a local brewery with the other guest either also being from a local brewery or from the Young's stable. Cider can be found in a container in a bottle fridge behind the bar. There are good facilities for children including a special menu plus play equipment in the garden. The garden also has a couple of pagodas with heating for smokers and there are a couple of sets of bike racks. There are also baby change facilities in the disabled toilet area. Disabled access to the pub is from the rear car park. Various areas of the pub can be hired for parties, meeting and presentations. There is a weekly quiz and live music most months.
