Lovely location by the heath, welcoming atmosphere, with different groups of people, couples, families, girls out for a "catch up", mates out for a drink. Decor is "shabby-chic" for want of a better description,. a lovely wooden floor throughout. There`s a dining area at the back of the pub. Toilets are upstairs and along, past the kitchen ??
My wife has to have gluten/dairy free meals, and although the waitress explained what was suitable, there was n`t much , so she wound up with a plate of chips. (This is n`t unusual sadly) My self and my son had the double burgers, which were really tasty.
But enough of the preamble, to the beer.
A huge range of pumps , and I would have spent all night there, by my wife needed feeding . The dark eyed and wild haired Jessica, who was no stranger to the ink, was charming and welcoming . I went for the Dark Star Pale Ale. I`d not sampled it before, and wow, my taste buds sang. It slipped down a treat, and I interrupted my meal to go and get another pint. Glorious. Definite return when next in Blackheath.

Meet a friend here on Tuesday night for a catch up and a few beers. The Hare was my pub of choice in Blackheath as it has a nice feel to it and a good range of ales.

On this visit the 10 hand pumps had 7 cask ales & 2 ciders with the remaining pumps being empty. In addition there was 1 lager and 2 “craft” ales on keg served from the 3 taps at the back of the bar. There’s also a decent range of bottles and good quality lagers on keg.

We stayed for 3 hours and worked our way around the selection, beers sampled were Joe's Norfolk Ale “Knot Just Another IPA” @ 5.0%, Partizan Brewing “Porter” @ 5.1%, Portobello’s “Star” @ 4.3% & “London Pilsner” @ 4.6% and finally Signature Brew’s Bullhorn @ 7.3%...the last one was a whopping £7.00 a pint! Pricey but worth every penny.

Pretty busy for a Tuesday night, nice atmosphere, good attentive service and cracking beer.

Best pub in Blackheath for me.

Popped in on Sunday (3-4pm) very good beer but I've never seen so many toddlers in a pub before it was like the bloody Wacky Races with all those buggies, still it gave us a bit of a laugh.

The last pub of 3 in Blackheath on a Thursday evening and the one that we settled in.

Its been almost a year since I've been here and can easily say this is the best ale selection in Blackheath and also the best pub.

10 cask hand pumps serving 8 ales and 2 real ciders. My choices were Caveman Shopper Gold @ 4.0%; Siren Dinner for Four @ 4.3% & Wiper And True Small Beer No 8 @ 3.3%.

Aswell as the cask pumps there are 4 keg ales on, most offered in halves at around £4.00 a half.

Now onto the bottle selection which has a varied array of European and UK bottles. The last time i was here I had a good go at the bottles and this visit was no different. All priced upwards of £4.20 a bottle my choices (which were carefully picked) were Hardknot Infra Red @ 6.2%; Omnipollo (Sweden) Mazarin @ 5.6%, Tiny Rebel Hadouken @ 7.4% and To Ol (Denmark) F**k Art The Heathens Are Coming @ 5.4%

As the evening went on the pub filled up with eaters and drinkers. The food looked and smelt very good but I didn't sample any, I was only here for the beer!

Good and attentive service from the 2 barmaids.

Cracking pub , good ale, friendly and quick service, perfect location with a small pond to the front....the Hare and Billet is a must visit.

9/10 for me.

I have to agree with the last couple of posters. This is most likely the best pub in Blackheath and it was my favourite of 10 I visited in South-East London yesterday. The interior has lots of white tiling. Food is reasonably expensive. But if the beers are anything to go by, it's probably worth it. Yesterday's range was Wild Beer Co Bibble, Brockley Porter, Hare Ale Best Bitter, Truman's Runner, Portobello APA, East London Jamboree, Greene King IPA & King's Evoluton Black Symphony. The cider was Biddenden's Bushells, something I've rarely seen outside Kent. The toilets are a bit of a trek. But this is a really good pub and has a fairly prominent location overlooking the heath. Seems to be popular with families, as I'd previously noted in my review of the Princess of Wales.
