Renamed and revamped, although it hasn't changed that much inside as far as we can tell. That said, it's now focused on a decent pint of real ale and lots of other bottled beers from across the world. We can't complain about this, as we haven't seen pints of things like Deuchar's Double Dark this side of the border in recent memory. That said, they also support local London brewers, including Greenwich's Meantime and the local Sambrook brewery. They've also come up with an interesting offer, calling the pub the 'Home of the Third'; basically, if you fancy trying a selection of their beers, you can get a tasting menu of 1/3 pint of three beers in the packages they offer. Brilliant idea! It's a great idea for learning more about beers and trying something new. Add friendly staff and pleasant locals and we're going to have to go back and work our way through the menu next time we are in the area.
