Had a pint of Wild Weather Ales Keyboard Warrior 3.9% which I've never come across before but was delightful. Cost £4.30. Several other ales on. It's a locals pub, but as a visitor I felt welcome. Located Just off the Blackheath common/green/park. I visited in November, can imagine it's great in the summer.

Quite a few years since I was here so with 30 minutes to kill before meeting a friend I popped in for a quick pint.

5 pumps in the front bar offering 5 ales, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Caledonian Deuchars IPA, Fullers London Pride, Sharps Doombar & Brains Reverend James. I went for the Black Sheep Best, drinkable but not outstanding, £4.20 a pint. The rest of the taps had a varied selection of local and European keg lager, including offerings from Meantime and Sierra Nevada.

18.30 and it was pretty busy and quite loud especially a group of 5 fellas who were very vocal!

Food on offer & it looked alright but not outstanding.

Nice neutral decoration but it’s a fairly bland pub which is just how I remember it, the large back garden and common to the front are the saving grace of this place.

There is better in Blackheath.

The great shame about this pub is that its ruined by lack of staff serving at the bar. Everytime I have been in there I have waited in excess of 5 minutes to get served. There only evers seems to be 2 barstaff on at any given time, even during busy saturday and sunday periods and a queue of 8-10 persons waiting.
As I say a great shame as the pub is actually very nice with a really great garden area.

Stopped off after rugby game and only drank beer and had snacks . The Pride was pefectly good, my colleagues all had Doombar which seemed to go down very well. Portions of thick cut chips were also consumed at the bar. These were v good too. From looking around it is clearly a wine and food pub rather than a beer drinker haunt. Great Location on Heath

Since I have lived in Blackheath (only for a year) but visiting for many, management has changed a few times and it always starts good but then gets complacent. By far the best located pub in SE, especially summer as you can sit on the heath. I do think it's a victim of it's own success, due to location.

Food is hit or miss, although the last few times I have been, it has been perfect. Often there on a Sunday or midweek and have had various parties there too. The staff are lovely but always understaffed, they will hopefully get this right with new owners! In summer it can be awful, at least 30 mins to get served and then no glass collectors, and when it's packed, it can be unbearable. However, just need more staff on hot days.

I will always love this place and will always go back as it's just lovely when it's good, but just OK when it's bad, which is no bad thing.
