Is now listed on the Slug & Lettuce website as 'coming soon' so maybe time for ANOTHER refurb of this dump....

As i ventured in to this public house i could smell the stench of blood and the humiliation of staff being forced to wear t shirts with the crooked surgeon logo on.I walked up to the bar did a 180 degree turn i opened my mouth and asked the barman i then did a 360 degree turn after that i did 180 degree turn and was satisfied by this.I picked a buck up off the floor must of been left by some yanky.I asked the barman for a shot of Jack Daniels he looked at me and laughed the whiskers on my chin stood on end like a cat who has just had a gun fired at it.I then proceded to buy a pint i downed the whole thing like a fish swims in water.I took a look at the menu then slapped my knees and then was asked by the security guards to leave the premieses.

Terrible pub all round. Characterless, overpriced and very poor service from staff who were more interested in the their private lifes than serving the very few customers who had ventured in.

This pub used to be so great whats happened the food was pratically 2 for 1 pudding buy one get one free.Its full to the brim off snobs i was in there a few weeks ago this place seems to be attracting middle class prats who dance around.What happened to good old fashioned morris danceing.4.50 for a pint of Peroni fair enough its the westend but its not stringfellows where atleast you get to see a bit of nipple when you order your drink.Overpriced rubbish and i think the pipes need cleaning no ales on tap "Good thing".The music is on full blast making phone calls to people pratically extinct.seems to be full of old blokes in here aswell maybe it should be renamed Jurrasic Park.The football is hown on tv with full blast music so you wanas here the footy but instead you hear "Whats that coming over the hill isit a monster".I would come here again some staff were friendly i think ill stick to Moon Under Water.Bingo.

Came here on a Saturday afternoon to watch the Horse Racing and what do they show on a saturday afternoon? Football.Its changed it name it used to be called the Crooked Billet and has been moved from Catford i think.I asked the barmen for an ale and it wasnt on tap when i had a pint of tettleys here 3 weeks ago,Decor was ok i enjoyed the picture on the wall of the surgeon escpaicaly the pic of the man playing football with a stuffed hedgehog.I ordered some food from the paper menu YES PAPER MENU! ON A CLIP BOARD YES A CLIP BOARD i thought it was an april fools joke seen as it was 2 weeks after that event it occured to me that it realy wasnt.The manager has alot to ask for maybe it should be called The Crooked Manager.I ordered the beef lamb stew and dumplings but it wasnt on the menu.So i went for a bowl of chips instead when i say bowl i mean egg cup.after waiting 42 minutes they came colder then a polar bears frezzer.The waitress said that there was a probleam in the kitchen.I think it was the manager gave me an ice cold stare.I kept sking if they was going to show the horse racing they said they never show horse racing.I proped up the bar for a while and there was smell of sulphur emulating from the bar staff area.The glass collector also collected my glass before i even had a chance to swipe the pint glass and have it at home .Basicaly its turned in to a slug and lettice.All in all i t was ok in there i think ill stick to me pint of Green King in the Blue Lotus Pub in soho.
