The Oval Tavern, Croydon

Now Esther has been in situ for a couple of weeks or so things are definitely looking up for the Oval. There were four hand pumps offering Landlord, Doom Bar, Tribute and another national brand, but more pumps to come and beers from SIBA perchance.

The pub is looking spruce having had a clean-up, and there is an air of optimism which was lacking under the previous regime. The music is continuing and there's a quiz on Wednesdays and open mike night on Tuesday . All good!

The Green Dragon, Croydon

Today the star of the show was locally brewed IPA from Clarence & Frederick's which was disappearing fast. It was probably the best beer they've brewed yet.

This is the place to come for Croydon beer, both from C&F And from Cronx. After some experimentation, both of these breweries are developing fine brews and the Green Dragon is to be commended for showcasing them so positively. Nice!

The pub is being managed superbly by Kevin in the wake of Esther's departure. Lets hope the company recognise what an asset he is and make him manager. He knows what has to be done to keep this the best venue in Croydon.

The Hope, Carshalton

A miracle in the making.
The recent additions make this popular pub more comfortable for the crowds of real ale fans who flock here. Good to see key keg beer on the bar.
Wonderful in an understated way.
