Lord Derby, Plumstead
Pubs next to suburban railway stations rarely delight, and the Lord Derby is no exception. Quite an attractive old-fashioned interior (wood panelling, comfortable upholstered seats) and cheap drink are plus points, but the earthy clientele we've seen here might put you off. A forthcoming raffle for Status Quo tickets was advertised on our visit, and occasional discos also take place.
