The Alexandra, Penge

Reopened under new management this week. Deceptively spacious with a raised bar area to the front and good use of a railway arch to the rear which has been fully incorporated into the building. The fire escape map shows a large function room as well but I haven't seen it. Good range of beer including local brewery Southey, some Adnams and London Beer Factory. Slightly controversially serves in 2/3rd glasses rather than pints but I have to say I like that. Tres European. Absolutely rammed the first time I went in, like a crèche in the early afternoon but a really great locals atmosphere in the evening. Feels like a real destination place at the moment. They will be serving food but the kitchen isn't finished yet. They seem to be growing a large number of plants under the railway arch which makes for interesting decor. Glass of Beyond The Pale was £3. Very good.

The Briton's Protection Hotel, Castlefield

Remarkable and rightly preserved interior. Some spectacular decoration and a series of union murals. Still nicely subdivided in to small rooms. Good range including Moorehouse, Spinners Gold, Britons Protection, Unicorn and Cumberland. An essential stop off in the area.
