Lord Clyde, Shooter's Hill
Located in a steep, small valley between Plumstead and Woolwich Common, the Lord Clyde is a place for local residents who aren't fussed (or can't be bothered) about walking up the hill to better pubs in Plumstead. It's quite handsome from the outside, with its stained glass windows and hanging baskets. This is somewhat deceptive, though, as the interior is as well-worn as you'll find. It's sparse and a little claustrophobic inside. Seats range against the walls and around the central bar. A cabinet of darts trophies and a portrait of Winston Churchill strike a note of pride in unpromising surroundings. The drink on offer is unremarkable, other than San Miguel's availability on tap.
