Located just outside Catford Bridge train station, readily accessible from London Bridge. Nice traditional place with a contemporary edge to it. The tap selection on my first visit was pretty impressive - 10 casks and 4 "guest kegs". The focus is clearly on interesting UK microbreweries with Kernel, Moor, Marble, Thornbridge and the like available. There were also a few decent bottles such as Flying dog, BrewDog etc, but itís the draft beer to go for. Friendly Staff, nice atmosphere and a great choice of beer makes this an essential visit when in the SE.

A very cozy place in a fairly dodgy neighborhood though what do I know. A lot of selection though nothing that interesting on when I visited, nice service, delicious looking menu. Unfortunately couldnít try. Good prices on the drinks too. The food menu looked a bit on the pricier side though again, what do I know.

I knew this pub when it was called The Copperfield, but it is a better place to drink now. Useful for the two train stations at Catford in its own purpose built and attractive building from the last 100 years or so.

Excellent turnaround from the horror that was the Copperfield. Well served ales, decent food and quality ambience. Now shockingly under threat by an unscrupulous property developer whoís keen to turn an extremely successful pub into a Tescos Metro (or whatever).

Surprised that this Pub is not on here yet as its becoming very well known to many discerning ale drinkers in SE London and has been getting rave reviews elsewhere. The pub premises was taken over earlier this year and since its rebirth as the "Catford Bridge Tavern" has fast become my (and iím sure many other peoples) new local. They have a ever changing circulation of up to 14 taps/kegs of Real Ale and Cider that I have always found to be in great condition. Very happy to say they always seem to have 1 or 2 kegs of whatever "The Kernel" have been brewing, and the most common names on rotation that I have had the pleasure to enjoy include many brews from the likes of Thornbridge/MagicRock/Redemption/Arbor/Oakham/BytheHorns/Hardnott among many others. You will also find a good collection of bottle conditioned ales as well. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the food to accompany your brew of choice is both tasty and varied, no matter if your having a pork and black pudding sausage roll or scotch egg at the bar with your pint, or having a full hearty meal in the cosy restaurant in the next room. Thoroughly recommended. (UPDATE: On 20th November it has temporarily closed while a new lease is negotiated, the good news is that the planning application was rejected by Lewisham council protecting it with a Article 4, meaning it must stay as a pub) Great result, hopefully CBT will be back soon!) (UPDATE 2: It is reopening Friday 7th Dec from 18:00 Hooray!!)
