Having visited at almost the same time last year and gave a favourable review I was stunned on my latest visit to find this pub has turned into a “crap hole”.

It was very busy on my latest Thursday evening visit with everyone drinking (it was 9.30pm), not sure if food had stopped being served but there was no one eating.

3 ales on which were Fuller’s London Pride, Breakspears bitter and Hobgoblin. The grumpy looking barmaid (maybe the same one from last year) asked me what I wanted so I ordered and then she asked me again! The pint of Breakspears she pulled was very flat so I asked for another pint and at that point was told by the manager the pint was perfect…what a dick. I asked it to be changed for a pint of Pride and it was, the Pride was drinkable but still not great…I then poured the flat pint away while the manager looked at me in horror, I’m sure he was going to sell it to the next punter!

We stayed for just over an hour for while for our train and every pint of Pride I had was drinkable.

Now to the clientele, I'm unsure why this pub has changed but there were a lot of men and women all clearly locals and they were drunk, loud and quite aggressive….this gave the whole place an intimidated feel and though I wasn’t directly threatened it didn’t give me a pleasant experience.

Apparently earlier in the evening the food was good but still the service was poor, that’s from a pal who ate there.

Popped in on Thursday night after football @ Beckenham Town FC

Busy outside with a large party of blokes enjoying their selves and drinking heavily.

3 ales on the pumps which were Fuller's London Pride, Brakespear's Bitter & St Austell Tribute. The pints of Tribute I had were good but the service from grumpy bar maid was awful, she really didn’t look like she wanted to be there.

Nice enough pub, being a Toby Carvery it's very food orientated but it's very handy for the train station and a nice enough place to while away time waiting for the train.

This is an M&B chain pub. I,m a local though don't drink in pubs often.
What I have done is to take friends and family here for Christmas Day Dinner for the last 4 years.

It has always been a clean tidy traditionally decorated pub. Very comfortable and cozy. The staff have been on the ball and polite. The carvery meats have always been first class, and the Xmas trimmings very good.
There seem to be lots of lagers on sale but sadly only three real ales. (All acceptable and varied on each of my visits).
I have booked for Christmas Day and again the following week for the Carvery lunches.

More like an open prison/crche for the socially feeble than a pub or restaurant. Loud, warm, sticky and thoroughly charmless - think Vanessa Feltz after a gym session.

Caveat edax.

Once a fortnight, for the last three years, I've accompanied a group of care home residents for a carvery lunch to this carvery.. Everyone has enjoyed the food - no one has had food poisoning. The attention and good humour shown by staff to these often frail and vulnerable people is excellent.
