user reviews of the Bugle Horn, Charlton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Looks like it had had a refurb recently. Decent selection of ales, friendly staff. Shows sport was rather quiet (possibly every was in the nearby White Swan which had a quiz going on).

This is a crying shame. The building could be so attractive. It has been left to degrade itself to such an extent this can only be poor poor management or an owner that could not care less. The outside of the building puts to shame what could be a beautiful building and it really needs the daily more impotent Greenwich Council of Charlton to insist its kept up to a standard befitting the UK. This kind of decay and rot is endemic of this country today. All concerned should be ashamed of themselves and go live in a rubbish tip.

Visited in daytime. Good beer, Bombardier and Youngs. Lunch good. friendly crowd. Lots of Charlton Athletic memorabilia.
The charming barmaid Valerie ran the show.

Oh Lord. Been a long time since I even throught about looking at someone in the wrong way in a pub, and I'm a fairly amiable chap who'll drink pretty much anywhere. Luckily I was with Australians (including my girlfriend) so rough wasn't a problem ;) Beer (Bombardier) was fine. It's a bit of a pit, and the loos are abysmal. Shame - could be a nice pub. The sepia prints of Charlton FC point to a happier time when football wasn't automatically accompanied by thugs and idiots.

I think the sign on the telly said it all: "LEGAL Sky/Setanta costs £[thousands] per year. You are required to purchase two drinks when sport is being shown. If you don't like it, p*ss off to another pub where they like showing sport for free." O-kaay!

Been drinking in here pre-match since about '94, but no longer. One of the reasons to go the Bugle was back room with big screen, but this is no longer open so its the Oak from now on.

Gone radically downhill. The toilets ought to be condemned - overflowing urinals, peeling paintwork, no paper. no doors on the cubicles at the gents' down the rear. The landlord is always drunk and frequently abusive especially late in the evenings. Don't even think about if on match days if you're not a Charlton fan, and even if you are, it's only a solution in desperation as the other pubs near the Valley (Royal Oak, Coach and Horses) have closed. The Antigallican serves away fans but has no real ale and a fairly clinical atmosphere. The White Swan in Charlton village is not the world's best pub either but the landlord is friendly and it has beer on match days. Best of a bad bunch.

The Bugle is well worth a visit and everyone is very friendly. Whether it is a Charlton / Millwall pub and with regards to the comments on 6th March 2007 I would have thought that all of the barmaids should be less covered up. This way the punters will forget how badly their team plays!!

We've started drinking in here on match days since the Royal Oak became such a joke and we are genuinely liking the place. Will continue to use match days.

the toilets have finally been decorated the football team are in the final the beer is always good but the heating is so hot that you drink fast and drink more than you should (which is a good thing if you like a pint)Lee and bernie run a great pub with singers on Sundays and bar food michelle the barmaud should cover up more she is getting on a bit Over all a great pub and as a Millwall fan surrounded by Charlton pictures it still is worth a visit especially on match days when you can laugh at the charlton fans ..

My local since I abandoned the White Swan, the other pub in the village in desperation. Lee and Bernie run a good pub and the bar staff are always friendly and helpful. I've never had any problems here. Service always quick, even on match days.

Two Millwall fans who turn up and it's a Millwall pub, eh? I think not.

this is a millwall pub,but we let some of the anoracks in for the banter !

Been in here a couple of times prior to Charlton games but match day is probably not representative of its normal atmosphere. Service can be slow when busy (I was overlooked several times before eventually being served) but they were quick to offer a fresh pint when a cloudy Bombardier came out the barrel. Outside of match day, this is probably the most attractive of the pubs in the Charlton area with its mock Tudor décor and country pub ambience and one of the few that I would chose to spend some time in, just as long as the “This is a Charlton / Millwall (delete as appropriate) pub” brigade have a night off and Handgun Harry stays locked up.

I heard of a guy who used to drink in this pub every day and night for years. He's now serving 14yrs in Prison for robbing the shop opposite. All I can say is, there must have been some destractions in there.. lol. Or very depressing.
