The Volunteer has a little more to offer than many Plumstead pubs. The atmosphere was pretty good on our visit, aided by some decent indie on the jukebox (Stone Roses, Manics). Blue china is something of interior theme, juxtaposed with new oil paintings (i.e. for sale) based on Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas. Young's Bitter is the only draught beer of note behind the bar, and a huge beer garden at the back might be nice for a summer pint. Nothing amazing, then, but better than most around here.

How to find the Volunteer pub
From Plumstead railway station, head east along the High Street. The pub is ten minutes' walk, on the right.
