The Crayford Arms, Crayford
19 Nov 2012
A Shepherd Neame pub with a good number of real ales on tap each week, this pub has new Landlords and a full schedule of events and entertainments. Last week the real ales included Betty Stogs, Merlin, Barnsley Bitter and Spooks Ale which was so popular during the Halloween parties that customers requested that it was reordered. CAMRA has honoured the pub a number of times with it's awards, most recently with 3rd place in the Bexley Area CAMRA Pub of the Year for 2011. Recently refurbished this pub, opened in 1840, has the feel of a late Victorian Alehouse with a real fire, wood floors and dark walls. The Crayford Arms is a pub that encourages community spirit. Its welcome is warm and friendly and it doesn’t limit itself to simply selling drinks, although of course it does excel in the quality and range of real ales. The Crayford Arms is a community focused pub with local groups and societies meeting regularly in the newly refurbished building on Crayford High Street. Local singers, bands and entertainers perform in an intimate setting and there are often weekend events which involve families, groups and individuals. There is a car park at the rear of the pub and an enclosed and partly undercover garden. No food at the moment but this is coming next year. Thoroughly recommended but with one warning, you will be engaged in conversation with the regulars, so be prepared for a great pub that is part of the local community - a rare thing these days. The pub is on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/thecrayfordarms it's website is: www.thecrayfordarms.com and it is also on Twitter and Foursquare.
