Chatterton Arms, Bromley
They have changed the bar staff, but not for the better, these lot are just as bad as the last part. They serve you with such a look of disdain on their faces, then refuse to fill your glass with a full pint, and you have to ask the landlord before you get any reaction.
The garden could do with a good clean, there are cigarette ends every where, the tables are in a sad state, and it just looks run down.
It's always been an expensive place, but this takes the biscuit.
I had a pint of Stella
and a small white wine, with a splash of soda
And it was Â£8.10p
I just could'nt believe it
No wonder on a Sunday lunch time they have hardly any customers
No children in the garden
And the bar staff hang round with nothing to do
So when you do ask them for something, they look at you as an inconvenience
Why did the 5 Bells shut ?
Where did all their customers go ?
Certainly not to the Chatterton Arms
And also there is no longer any WiFi
Booze is very dear, no food, and full of people just getting in the way of walking about, and stopping you from getting to the bar.
The garden is a bit basic, and on a sunny day it's good just to let the kids run riot outside.
The bit that says it all is that the owner is never to be seen and tends to have his own favourite pub some where else.
41 Chatterton Road, Bromley, London, BR2 9QW
The nearest station is (marginally) Bickley, on the Victoria line. From here, head right down Southborough Road, then take the third right (Southlands Road). Head down here for around 1/2 mile and turn left into Chatterton Road. The pub is a short way down here, on the left-hand side. To save shoe leather, head to Bromley South (the preceding stop) then take any of the buses which head up Masons Hill/ Bromley Common. After around 1km, alight at the stop marked "Southlands Road". Head left down either Southlands Road or Walpole Road, then turn right into Chatterton Road.
