The Cricketers, Croydon

Ray's regular house beer is Redemption Brewery's award-winning Trinity which although being only 3% ABV is a gorgeous drink, and rare to find south of the river. Other regular beers featured inlcude Harveys and there are guest beers usually.

The Cricketers has been redecorated recently but retains its comfortable lived-in feeling. Tuesday nights feature decent jazz and the talented vocalist is worth the trip to Shirley Road. Simple hearty pub grub available.

Great pub in which to watch Palace matches! Ray must be CPFC's greatest fan.

The Waddon Hotel, Croydon

I used to work up the road from this pub some years back and visited The Waddon on a couple of Friday lunchtimes. I don't remember the beer at all, and recall the place was rather dowdy. This was probably 15 years ago.
So finding myself recently stranded waiting for a train from Waddon station, I decided to pop in and see what was what. The place is now much smarter than I recall, and the beer on offer was Bass (seldom seen these days round here) and one from Caledonian. Can't remember which particular beer offhand.
The Bass, which was all I had time to try, was very good and I said as much to the barman.
It wasn't busy - there were only several others in there which was probably par for the course mid-afternoon on a weekday - so I cannot make any valid assessment of the quality of the other punters. Sorry John!
However, this seemed to me a decent enough place for a pint or two of Draught Bass. Where else would you get that in Croydon?
