Last pub of the day after a fairly long day, we reluctantly stopped here as we missed our bus.

I haven’t been here the first day it opened, 20 odd years ago. This place has had its knockers over the years and has had a reputation for being unfriendly and sometimes dangerous, thankfully neither of these elements were in evidence on this visit.

I think there were 4 ales on, I cannot remember what they all were apart from Doom Bar and my choice which was Adnams Prop Hop @ 4.0%, a decent pint but by this time I frankly had, had enough and ended up nursing my pint before we left just after 10.30pm.

Fairly busy but as already pointed out this is a very small ‘spoons and seating is at a premium.

During recent years Eltham has improved in terms of real ale outlets , coupled with Wetherspoon’s always offering several ales in each of their outlets the Banker’s Draft is worthy of a visit, but just be careful none of the nasty elements are present.

Very small Wherspoon's and can't be guaranteed getting a seat, something I definitely need nowadays. Never eaten in there but the food does look good.
Beer is always good and good selection. Young's Special was superb yesterday and only £2:19 a pint.
I usually only stay for a couple before moving on elsewhere but always get good service and a more than decent pint.

Small spoons pub that does it's best! We had the curry yesterday evening and were looked after by the bar staff. We enjoyed the drinks and the curry but the language of some of the locals takes a bit to be desired. We quite liked this little pub and at these prices will return on our next visit.

Small Whetherspoons and much improved from before. Beer is good and amazingly cheap. Much of the previous low life appears to have left. Worhth dropping in.

Must be the smallest spoons in the world. Very much a locals pub, most of whom seemed blitzed at 6pm on a monday. That said I was left to my own devices and enjoyed an excellent pint. There will be worse pubs in town I'm sure.
