user reviews of Kentish Drovers, Peckham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Kentish Drovers is a Wetherspoons pub in the heart of Peckham. It's full of all sorts of characters of all nationalities and cultures. As a pub and an example of a 'spoons, it's pretty poor. The ale selection was Ruddles Best, Caledonian Edinburgh Castle & Sambrooks Junction. The cider was Old Rosie. I had a swift half of Edinburgh Castle before moving on. Believe it or not, there are better places in Peckham.

The 4th pub of the night and it was rude not to visit this ‘spoons while in Peckham pub ticking.

There were 4 ales on but the choice was not that great with 3 national brands and Westerham Brewery Single Hop. I went for a pint of the single hop @ 4.0%. A decent enough pint poured by the very jovial barmaid, who was singularly the happiest person I met during this night out, she must have been on something!

We stayed for an hour and ordered some food which was a bit better than your average ‘spoons food as the barmaid asked the chef to ass a couple of Caribbean spices and they certainly had a kick.

Pretty busy, nice and calm, cheap food and drink not a bad ‘spoons at all.

About the best pub in Peckham I should think.

Having been in London seeing my family last week our first port of call did not do food on a Saturday so we wandered down Rye Lane to this pub. The service was very good, polite and quick. We tried the food and I must say all 4 of us were impressed with its freshness and quality and were pleased we came here instead for lunch. Will certainly use this pub again when next in Peckham.

Odd little 'spoons with curious lighting, some odd customers and a distinctly edgy atmosphere. Ten handpumps, with some doubled-up so not that great a choice of real ale. My pint of Bateman's Hooker was OK, and reasonably priced at 1.95, but this certainly wasn't a place where I would consider staying for a second.

If you like blue light and, yes, strange old men that look like characters from a William Burroughs novel you will love this pub

This pub is like any other Wetherspoons pub in that it has a distinct lack of soul. There are many strange old men that seem to be permanent fixtures there and it also has some very odd UV lighting above the bar... Only go in if a)you're on the way somewhere better and fancy a cheap drink or b)you're feeling lazy and can't be bothered to go somewhere decent. I suggest walking (or for the lazy folk getting the bus) to Camberwell and getting a drink there.
