I was last here almost 5 years ago, when the pub was unexpectedly closed on a bank holiday Monday. This time it was open. Entering felt like entering a timewharp. You pass through what I can only describe as coloured streamers in the doorway, reminiscent of 1970s greasy spoon cafes. But the welcome was warm and the locals seemed like a friendly bunch, albeit a little wary of a stranger amongst their midst. The juke box was being well utilised and the large lizard (not sure if it was Ronnie or Reggie) was motionless in its tank at the rear. This is an unspoiled boozer that would probably look exactly the same in 10 years time, including the same customers in the same places. I gave this a 0/10 in 2012. But I'm not entering a more realistic score of 6/10 as I did enjoy my visit. The ales were Caledonian First Dawn, Cotleigh Seahawk & Rosie's Best Bitter. No real cider was available.

My 4th pub of the day and my 4th GBG 15 tick in South East London.

I thought I had been here before many many years ago but on entering I realised I’ve never been here before.

I would say this is a traditional ale house and a real surprise in Woolwich, it’s very spacious inside with a traditional interior, plenty of seating around the sides but it has an uncluttered feel. Wood panelling with a wooden bar and bar top.

6 hand pumps on the bar with a couple of guest ales, I went for a pint of Westerham’s Grass Hopper @ 3.8%. A really poor pint that tasted like it was off, but to be honest I think it was the beer more than the condition.

Half full with everyone being locals & regulars, horse racing on the tele in the back seating area. On the way to the toilets make sure you stop and take a look at the 2 lizards in their vivarium, apparently they are called Ronnie & Reggie.

A decent and friendly pub that is worth a visit, along with the Woolwich Equitable (new Antic pub), The Great Harry (‘Spoons) & The Dial Arch (Young’s)…drinking in Woolwich is looking up.

This pub looks very attractive from the outside. But it is either closed for good or had failed to open on a Bank Holiday Monday afternoon. So it's a big fat 0/10 from me, as no beer was being served.
