This one's history now. I remember it back in the '70's when I worked on the Kentish Independent newspaper - Christ, did we put some money over the counter!

This was the pub literally over the road from Reliance Printing in the 60s-early 70s where I done my apprenticeship . . . Me and my mate Peter (still see him now either in Woolwich or London) used to go in there and still do on a Woolwich visit. We mainly used ROSES (Prince Albert) in Hare Street where we still meet and play Good Vibrations on the jukebox!!! Those were the days. Sorry to hear it will close soon. Ron - Chingford.

Well I think that review is a bit mean and i really wonder who wrote this.

I am a very fair person and I think the pub is ok. I have visited it a few times now and ok, its not the best in terms of furniture and needs some sprucing up and could do with more light and better seating but overall its quite nice. It has loads of space and different areas eg quiet, buffet areas (on request), dance areas, etc.

I go to numerous venues on my travels as an entertainer and dj and see lots of different things. I have spoken to the manager (steve) who is fairly new to the pub and he seems like a nice enough guy. People are quite nice in here. The most important thing for a female in any pub setting is to feel safe. I feel safe enough to visit this pub by myself and drink here, maybe meet with some friends and chill. It's not the best place in Woolwich but by far it is not the worse. What's nice about Steve is that he does listen to suggestions. He is fresh enough to make changes and to listen to his customers about security and improving the pub.

Infact I thought the pub was nice enough to dj in for a Cancer Relief night on September 15th. (which I don't usually do in pubs at present!!, though this will make a nice change :)

Why don't you try it instead of reading other people's judgements and hidden agendas ?

The music will be good old R&B, Dance, Party, maybe a bit of Bhangra and a FANTASTIC atmosphere !!

Went here every day for 3 years. Loved the place - my mis-spent youth felt at home there. Big shout out to all the old regulars!

It's a lovely interior and if it was properly run would be a great pub once again. (This is the brewery's fault not the management). Spend some money on it or sell it, guys, and bar all loud Arsenal fans for life.

Beautiful interior inside - including huge paintings in its function room - but sadly feels a bit run down. One of Woolwich's better pubs, though, and when the area finally goes up in the world, hopefully the DG will go up with it.
