A failing pub finally closed. Couldn't keep pace with Wetherspoons cheap prices at the Crap 'Edmund Halley'. . Shame Wetherspoons couldnt move the Halley into it. People wouldn't have to put up with a a three mile hike into the sky for a pish!

Still boarded up over a year later and using about 4 or 5 different Estate Agents looking for anyone to acquire it. This was an amazing building, but now is a blight on the Lee Green intersection (and if you look at the other 3 corners, that takes some doing).

Enterprise Inns ran this place into the ground, and turned it into a dilapidated mess. Nice of them to then go to the trouble of blacking out their logo out on all the outside signposting, to abscond from any responsibility for the mess.

I honestly feel that this pub, with a major refurb, could become very sucessful. The building is grand, and if they did something with the interior to match, I'm certain they could pull in a decent and sizeable clientele. Surely not ALL of Lee is interested in getting drunk as cheaply as possible in any old surroundings (see The Edmund Halley) or getting it on with their relatives (see The New Tigers Head - music bar). It would be the closest pub for most of 'South Blackheath' and the Cator Estate.

Closed then? FFS! This used to ba an alright little boozer. Moved away from the area a while back, but always though that this boozer would stand the test of time. Still if the last three reviews are anything to go by it must have gone down hill and gone down that hill bloody fast!

This dump has finally been boarded up!

The last time I was in there Spetember 05, the guy behind the counter had yellow stains all over him, dirty clothes from the late 70's and to top it all off a lump of mould in the bottom of my pint after drinking half of it!

I think this place has finally died its slow, painful death. I haven't seen it open for at least a couple of weeks now (incl Fri/Sat), although they've left the bar lights & TV on. It's a shame, as the building itself is quite impressive, but they've let the interior deteriorate so much that the Old Tigers Head and the Edmund Halley seem better options. I fear it will inevitably be converted to flats.
