This place is now called the Hill Top Tap. The CAMRA website had the pub listed as a 9am opening. Google has it as 10:30. Guess what, at 10:40, it was still closed. The proprietor did come out to ask why I was standing in his entrance sheltering from the rain and all credit to him, he said he would try to get the times changed. Good luck with that. I've yet to find a website with reliable pub opening times. There may be a gap in the market. Needless to say, when they opened at 11am, I was the only customer. Sharp's Doom Bar is the regular beer. The guest was Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter. But to my surprise, they also had 5real ciders - Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon, Thistly Cross Whisky Cask, Rich's Legbender & Lilley's Mango Cider & Apple & Blackberry cider. Frustratingly they are billed as craft ciders and given an appropriate price mark-up. It is however a friendly place, where there is an emphasis on providing TVs for sport. I would return if ever in Sidcup again.

Went into the Portrait last night. The first time in about three years. Still an awful place. Had one beer and left. Beer was okay but the pub was full of posers and the music being played was awful. Went to the Tailor's Chalk - a far better pub. I'll never go to the Portrait again. There are far better pubs,

And Lilyput's comments - whether illiterate or not - are yet another example of someone registering to post just one 'out-of-step' glowing review, which is why I treat it with suspicion.

Have just read the comments made by Lillyput in May, 2010. Poor spelling and grammar. Sums up the intelligence of most of the people who drink in the Portrait. No wonder I stopped going there.

It's years since I've been in the Portrait. Is it still full of teenagers and posers? If so, will avoid.
