I haven't been to this pub for a couple of years. One good thing is, the quality of the beer has stayed the same. I had a very pleasant pint of Seafarer's ale.
I used to enjoy the cosy and comfortable feel in this pub. Unfortunately the refurb has completely taken the charm away. Very much a generic "brand identity" look. It's not unpleasant but it is soulless.
As with too many pubs the focus seems to be on food. There is a large restaurant area downstairs that was completely empty, as there is less seating than there used to be, we had to sit in here. I can't help thinking a pub should focus mainly on drink with good quality pub food as an added bonus.
Another strange idea was the drinks menu. Surely that's what the bar is for? I would also question, considering the area the pub is in, selling a bottle of Port for £65.
What a shame the brewery couldn't keep the good stuff about this pub while subtly updating it.
Two years ago I would've given this pub at least 9/10, now, it would be 6/10

My first visit to this pub for more than 20 years.

Good range of Fullers ales on tap, these were London Pride, ESB, Summer Ale, Seafarers Ale and the guest was Portobello Pale.

Has recently been extensively modernised inside and out with what appears to be more emphasis on the food side.

The weather on my visit was stunning so I took my pint and retreated to the superb back garden. This is a cracking outside area with plenty of seating and also boasts an upstairs decking area with seating…I think this may be more of dining area but I didn’t venture up there.

Decent pub that is worth the short walk from north Greenwich jubilee line station, however I agree with previous reviews the homely ness has disappeared.

Went in last night with the girlfriend while we waited for her parents to come out of watching Dolly Parton at the O2. I had a lovely noting hill blonde IPA, accompanied by a scotch egg and chips. Vey good all round (although pretty stingy on the chips side). Great pub, comfortable and friendly staff. Almost deserted on a Saturday night though, which is sad.

Sadly all the cosy ambience and most of the sensible seating has been removed in the refurbishment, such that the pub could not even offer my wife (who has mobility issues) and myself a table.

A big disappointment, and a waste of time.

First time in here since the refurb.Was in the area to see the mighty Chas&Dave.
Still a nice place to grab a quality pint(the London Pride was top drawer).
but i prefered the more homely feel of the pre refurb version.A place i would still visit when in the manor though.
As with my previous post, the charming young lady who lived next but one and her raunchy dances at her bedroom window are sorely missed though..
