This place now bills itself as a micropub and is called the Rusty Bucket. It seems to specialise in craft beers. But, there were 4 real ales fetched from a cool room just behind the bar. They were Kent KGB & Session Pale, Empire Moonraker & Kirkstall Out of Focus. Real ciders were from Dudda's Tun - Disco, Greenhorn & Blackcurrant Cider. Craft beers were from Moor, Tempest, BBNO, Beatnikz Republic, Villages, Anspach & Hobday, Verdant, Polly's Brew Co, Tiny Rebel, Omnipollo, Blackened Sun, Northern Monk, Boxcar, Mikkeller & Emperor's/Steel City. The latter was a Sour Cherry Red Wine Stout! There also appeared to be a good range of bottles and cans in the fridge. The pub was fairly busy and the young barman was struggling to cope. The craft beer taps seemed to have a mind of their own, the till had frozen and I was served out of order. But, apparently it was his first night. It was also quite crowded inside. Many of the tables are designed for larger groups. But, with single drinkers occupying many of these due to a lack of smaller tables, many were having to stand. Glasses remained uncollected. Music was playing fairly loudly. I don't mind this. But, it's not normally something you would associate with a micropub. The toilet had a faulty sink. Although, hand gel was provided. I've painted a fairly negative picture. But in all honesty, this was probably the best pub I visited in South East London yesterday. It certainly had a lively atmosphere and the drinks range was good. Probably now the best pub in Eltham.

Closed and boarded up a couple of years ago. Recently sold and site acquired by Altitude Assets.

I would be surprised if this is re-opened as a pub.

Should be called the community centre, its a regular pub and will never be the cafe/coffe bar green king want it to be!! BRING BACK THE POOL TABLE, JUKE BOX AND TOP OF THE LIST OUR FOOTBALL.

Now closed for revamping, but chalkboards outside suggest they're going for a 'gastro' type look, as advertising hoardings for croissants, coffee and panninis seen outside. Wonderful - upmarket drunks here we come! A lick of paint doesn't change and won't change the clientele.

The only thing missing from this place is the spit and sawdust of old.
