The Copperfield, Catford
Massive pub practically on top of Catford Bridge station, just off the busy South Circular. Done up in the not too distant past, there's plenty of seating as well as standing room. Disappointing on a lot of fronts, no ales on the taps, TVs blaring everywhere, one barman and just a bit of a depressed air about the place when we were in last. Strangely, the door that opens onto the pavement is blocked off - we actually thought it was closed when we went past it the first time. While the Copperfield is the easiest place to meet up in Catford but, beyond that, it's pretty mediocre.

Another pub in need of a revisit by the fancyapint team. The Catford Bridge Tavern (as it is now) has brilliant real ales and ciders, great food (certainly a cracking sunday roast) and the most friendly staff I've met at a pub in a long time. The team at Antic have now single handedly saved Central Catford from the barren pub abyss it was previously. In fact, the team have actually now saved a good chunk of this area of south-east London with the best pubs in nearby Lewisham (with the Ravensbourne Arms), Deptford (Royal Albert) and Crofton Park (Jam Circus - ok it's a bar but it is great and serves proper beer).
