user reviews of the Long Pond, Eltham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This micropub is well off the beaten path. But it's also worth seeking out. Beware the limited opening hours, especially on a Sunday when it closes at 2:30. It seems to have a fairly loyal local following and was fairly busy at lunchtime yesterday. Complimentary biscuits were put on each table. Ales and ciders are dispensed from a cool room behind the bar and the selection did not disappoint. The house beer is Tonbridge Pond Life. Guests were Hop Fuzz Yellow Zinger, Whitstable East India Pale, Rockin' Robin Reckless Robin, Kent Brewer's Reserve & Bexkey Odo's Cat Porter. Ciders were Dudda's Tun Disco, Kentish Spice, Pear O'Dudda & Cheery Old Dudda, in addition to the local Eltham Gold. I can easily see why CAMRA voted this the local pub of the year for 2017. It was also my favourite pub of the day in South East London.

Away from the High Street but well worth the walk. Like similar micro pubs this closes between 2.30 and 5. Good range of 'local' beers and well priced at £3.20 to £3.40 a pint. Excellent place to while away a couple of hours.

Had a walk in the sunshine around Eltham and luckily my route took me past the Long Pond so I thought I would drop in to try it out. It's bigger than I expected from a micropub, but first impression was of a clean, nicely decorated place. There were a couple of punters in who both greeted me with a "good afternoon" when I walked to the bar, which was a nice welcome. I had two pints of Whitstable Winkle Picker (which was delicious and just £3.40 a pint) - served by very friendly staff. I didn't eat but the food they brought out looked good - though note they only serve 'proper' pub food - pork pies, cheese/meat platters etc.. No piped music to disrupt conversations, immaculately clean toilets ... what's not to like.

After a couple of pints in the Howerd Club it was a short walk to this fairly new micro pub that even though it doesn’t appear in the GBG it still needed ticking.

6 ales on which are all served from a cool room behind the bar (like all of the micro’s I have visited). I went for a couple of pints of Tonbridge Breweries Pond Life @ 3.6% which is brewed specially for the Long Pond. Other options were Kent Black Gold, Caveman Shopper Gold, Whitstable Native, Gadds No 5 &Wantsum Black Prince. Worth noting that all ales are priced between £3.00 & £3.40

Only the landlord was in when we arrived but within 15 minutes a few more punters arrived.

It’s been open a short while and is nicely decorated and laid out. A special mention for the extremely clean toilets.

The Long Pond is well worth a visit, just check the opening times before you do.

Lovely new micropub in the Kent tradition. Good, local, ale. Affable owner. Nicely converted from a plumber's shop. I hope Eltham realises how lucky it is.
