The Bridge House Tavern, Penge

I think this is a really good pub, made to look exceptionally good by the dearth in good quality pubs in the area.
This makes for a simple venue of choice when entertaining in Penge before hitting the workbench back at the Sydenham bungalow.
In brief:
Style: Modern gastro pub design: grand staircase, white walls and exaggerated decorative fittings. Young owners and staff, soul mixtape playing over the speakers. Large beer garden.
Drink: Decent wine list, Youngs ales, and European Lagers on draught and in the fridge.
Food: Sunday roast: 8/10.
Service: Very friendly. Verging on flirtatious.
Jollies: Thursday jazz night. Good live music from a soul-duo covering all the big ones. Female singer is a peach. Good pins.
Sunday night quiz. Well attended.
Executive summary: This is without doubt the best pub in the ‘down the hill from Crystal Palace’ category. The only real competition coming from the Dulwich Woodhouse (overpriced) and the Dolphin - drastically overpriced/lacks privacy.

The Golden Lion, Sydenham

I visited the Golden Lion for the first time on Friday night, and I was pleasantly surprised to find an excellent blues band playing to a lively and appreciative audience. Two saxophonists and an organist were amongst the line-up, playing quite understated renditions of songs by anyone from Traffic to Dylan, and a few songs of their own. The Guinness was good, and the barmaid was smiley. Being new to the area, I am very happy that this pub is nearby.

Bar China, Wimbledon

Bar China has closed down.

I know that the owners tried to sell the business for a while, but alas It is the latest victim of the credit crunch.
