Flame Bar, Blackheath
our final review
posted by ron on 4/6/2002
The worst of two worlds, the Flame Bar can't decide if it wants to be a pub or a bar! Built into an old bank the right hand side of the interior is taken up by a "trendy curved chrome bar" with your average selection of lagers, bitters, bottles, stouts & wine. Tacky faux Olympic style torches hang above the bar and give the whole place a whiff of Blue Peter. The main part of the building is taken up with cheap looking silver chairs and tables and the worst carpet we have ever seen in a newly decorated bar or pub. There's no music, no real atmosphere and a general feeling that the owners ran out of money and ideas half way through. They haven't even thought to change the glass in the windows, which still bears the NatWest logo - but then the whole place feels like its been designed by a bank manager
A few goes at being a restaurant and then closed.
