The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby, New Cross

Went to this pub on Sunday as my girlfriend wanted a roast; I had the burger. Roast was Ok - a bit pricy at £11. My main problem was with the burger. It was served with oven chips and the burger itself was obviously from a packet as well. I would expect this from an O'neals or Weatherspoons as you would only pay £4 or £5. A review below this called this nearly a gastro pub... hardly! The place itself is nice and it had a good selection of beer. I was just very disapointed with my meal which I hope the owners look into as £8.50 for oven chips and a packet burger is a bit poor... I was asked 'how is the food' and I said fine... Why don't us brits say it as it is a bit more at the time...

Like most Weatherspoon pubs a nice selection of real ales. The interior is quite nice and it looks rather inviting from outside. The food I had to be honest was very poor.

Me and my girlfriend wished we had paid £3 more per head and gone to the pub across the road. £5.50 for spaghetti bolognese is cheap but for what we got over priced. A micro-waved meal upturned into a bowl with the spaghetti on top of meat (what there was of it)... finished with what looked like a finger mark to check if it was hot or not.

For a cheap beer... not a bad pub, for food... poor, even by Weatherspoon standards.

Cave Austin, Blackheath

I popped in recently in the morning and was met by one girl trying to find a bag of coffee for the espresso machine and the others trying to serve a massive queue of two people; I waited 10 minuets then walked out. This place thinks itís a trendy hangout but you need trendy people for that; instead they get all manner of low life from the surrounding area. If itís a nice day it got a nice garden out back, other than thatÖ donít bother
