The Bricklayers is the only current Good Beer Guide entry in Beckenham and supposedly being open at 11 on a Saturday seemed like a reasonable starting point for a few pubs in the town. In reality, the barmaid didn't arrive to open up until 10 past the hour, leaving a queue outside. The main feature inside is a large Spiderman above one of the tables. There is also a courtyard area to the side, which a couple of youngsters elected to use. I chose to sit under the large superhero. The ale range was fairly uninspiring. St Austell Tribute & Proper Job & Young's Special are served, alongside a guest, which was Shepherd Neame Spitfire. However, this appears to be the only pub in Beckenham serving a real cider - Rosie's Pig. Whilst CAMRA members receive a discount off ale, the same does not apply to the cider. BT Sports matches are shown. But, they don't appear to have Sky.

St Austell's Tribute is a welcome find. Decent enough pub worth ducking into before you trip down the neon funky broadway of Beckenham High Street.

5-10 years ago this was the mos horrible pub in Beckenham by a long way which is why it has a low rating.
However, it's improved a lot since then although it is a little odd. Full of old men sitting at bar, but a huge inflatable spider-man on the wall!
Big sign outside last week declared beer festival 14-20th November. Went inside, no real evidence of this at all. Ales on were St Austell's Proper Job and St Austell's Tribute. It was cheap for Beckenham £3.30 a pint, so I'm guessing beer festival meant cheaper beer rather than variety of beer.
Located opposite Beckenham Cinema, Pub shows Sky Sports and plently of seats in outside area to side of pub.

The pub is seriously under-rated on this site, I now realise because of the behaviour of its previous owners/managers.

Great local pub with friendly staff. This was my first visit there, despite frequenting the cinema opposite. It won't be my last.

The life size spider man stuck on the wall was bizarre, but the pub was great. They even provide blankets embroidered with the pub name, for those people sitting in the beer garden.

And the prizes were reasonable - £2.70 for a small glass of wine and no charge for the soda water making it into a spritzer.

There is a discount for Camra members, but I wasn't drinking beer, so I don't know how much the discount was.

My first visit here for over 5 years so today being Easter Saturday and me being at a loose end seemed the right day to return.

Just before 12.15pm when I came in and there was about 10 punters in. Music playing from the radio and the television was off.

4 ales on the pumps which were St Austell Tribute and Proper Job, Young's Special and Harvey's Sussex Best. I chose the Sussex Best and was surprised and pleased when offered a discount for being a Camra member. The Sussex best was drinkable but it wasn't the best kept pint I've had.

Good neutral decoration with large sofa's, stripped wood tables and a welcoming brick fireplace. Bizarrely there is a large Spiderman climbing up one wall. In the corner there is an original American gas pump, beautifully restored.

A decent honest locals pub. Hopefully the other 3 ales are better kept.

I shall return to try the other ales.
