Since we were last in, there's been a marked change at the Blythe Hill Tavern. Don't worry, it's still a great boozer but now it's a great boozer with five real ales on the taps! The selection included two from Sussex's Dark Star brewery as well as Adnam's Stout. There's still decent Guinness and racing on the tellies, and the friendly locals and staff are worth the trip alone. The walls are covered in golfing pictures and ephemera - we even spotted an oil painting of the great Lester Piggott. Traditional Irish music sessions happen on Thursdays, and there's a pub quiz on Mondays. The sort of place where an afternoon could happily fly by, it comes recommended.

One of my favourite pubs. Great Irish staff, huge selection of real ales and ciders, lovely old school decor and a huge garden. What more could you want.

I've drunk (and been drunk) in a lot of pubs across London since the 1980's.
This pub has to be one of the best ones.

The landlord, Con Riorden, and the staff are a brilliant bunch. The beer is excellent. Guinness is perfect. Lots of regular guest ales. They won CAMERA Pub of the Year for south east London again last year.

There's a huge beer garden, Monday night quiz and Irish Music on Thursdays.

It's a proper pub and I hope it never changes. The people who drink here help make it a great boozer. I feel bad posting this as I want it to be a secret.
