Traditional, well-appointed backstreet local. Although a tied Fullers house, the ale quality and cellarmanship have been unfaltering, and this is a rare venue to enjoy the brewerís ales at their very best. Food is served Monday to Friday only, and some sports fixtures are shown on tv. Pub is divided into 3 distinct drinking areas, and is traditionally furnished with a lot of woodpanelling. It is very cosy in the winter months, and there has been a buzzing atmosphere on all my visits, cheered on by the enthusiastic licensee Martin Perkins. When on a "crawl" in the Croydon area the pub is a MUST.
