The White Swan, Charlton

Pub is now under complete new management as of September 2015, no longer tied to Punch and is now serving a wide range of local ales. Hop Stuff brewery is the local regular beer on tap, plus many others. So far in the first week, we've seen beers from Hop Stuff, Brockley, Caveman, Windsor & Eaton, Westerham & also Magic Bus Cider. Decor is now pleasing and gone is the pool table & bandits. Pub table games on offer and a promise of decent pub grub. Pub is linked with the very successful local "Pelton Arms" and is bringing the local music talent to the pub. Average price of a pint is £3.70 and I personally can not complain at the quality so far served. CAMRA members will get 50p off a pint of cask ale when card is shown.

The Sebright Arms, Bethnal Green

Popped into The Sebright Arms as it had a mention in the newly published “Craft Beer London” book (page 76) and can say that the write up did it fair justice.
Four cask ales were being pulled that evening, Two from Redemption “Rock the Kazbek”4.0% and “Urban Dusk” 4.6% and Two from East London Brewery ”Foundation Bitter” 4.2% and “Quadrant” an oatmeal stout at 5.9%, gorgeous can only slightly describe this wonderful stout. Some chap called Arthur in Dublin has got a lot of catching up to do if he wants to knock out a stout as good as this.
We were made very welcome by the bright and happy bar staff who offered a sample if we wanted to try before selecting. Thought best if we had a pint of each, so we could give an accurate opinion, (my excuse) and found all beers in excellent condition. A nice touch was that each beer pump had a small plaque describing what to expect.
As we were too late to try out the “Lucky Chip” catering, renowned for producing some of the best burgers in London, we will have to make another visit. Shame that, will probably have to try the latest four draft ales again. Life’s so damn hard.
Great old character style pub that has been saved from demolition, well worth a visit, but do seem strict on closing time. Stopped serving three minutes early the night we were in, so don’t hang about.

The Carpenters Arms, Limpsfield Chart

As of April 2012 this pub is now run by The Westerham brewery. They serve a range of Westerham Ales, Belgian beers and genuine craft brewed lagers. They offer a good range of homecooked food, but as I turned up on a Monday, I was unable to sample. Check out Westerham Brewery website for more details.
