After 3 swift halves in other Beckenham pubs, I arrived at the Jolly Woodman to find people queuing up outside just after midday. Luckily, they opened not long after I arrived. The pub is situated along what appears to be a mews street and it has the feel of a country pub. Even the toilets are outdoors at the rear. The ale range comprised of national ales - Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter & Sharp's Doom Bar were supplemented by 3 Yorkshire ales - Timothy Taylor Landlord & Knowle Spring & Black Sheep Best Bitter. A pub designed for conversation, with a basic interior and an outdoor drinking area at the rear. Bar snacks are served. My favourite Beckenham pub.

A Terenced gold medal winner.

Quality backstreet pub serving good beer. Friendly staff. Requires repeated returns.

Worth the walk up from the High Street.

My first ever visit to this quaint village style pub a short stroll from Beckenham High Street. Its been in the GBG for a few years and until now I've never managed to get here.

You enter with the bar straight in front of you and are greeted with
6 hand pumps each serving a different ale from 6 different breweries. The selection was Harvey's Best Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord, St Austell Tribute, Adnams Southwold Bitter, Young's Bitter and my choice which was Woodforde's Wherry. My pint was excellent and very good value at £3.65.

A lovely relaxed atmosphere throughout, no music and no television. Makes a change to have both of these but its very refreshing.

The front bar has old and collectable bottles on the shelves , a couple of old brewery mirrors, going through to the back there's plenty of tables & chairs, old pictures of the area on the walls and the door out to the back garden which is very nice but not the right weather today to sit out in.

I didn't expect this pub to be so nice, it's a corker.

It's like a kennel, dogs galore.

Have recently moved to the area and was told of many good things about this pub.....I wasn't disappointed; the Landlord is a very welcoming chap, the ale is brilliant, and considering it is a small pub and very close knit, I never felt an outsider. Will be frequenting this delightful local a lot more.
