Railway Tavern

Last time we were here, we were accosted by the sight of 'middle-aged men in shorts dancing to Wham!?'. Thankfully, things were a little more tame on this visit. It definitely feels like a locals pub and we have to admit we...

Two Half's

This place doesn't look much from the outside, but it's actually a reasonable pub. There's lots of room, a couple of pool tables, a beer garden (well, tables on the pavement) and several tellies scattered around the place....

The Greyhound

Looks dead to us - it's been under hoardings for about three years now and the chances of it coming back now seem very slim.

Golden Lion

Now billing itself as the "Sydenham Blues Club", we're guessing they're doing what they can to bring in the punters. To be honest, it's a big, roomy pub which has tried to go back in time a bit, putting back Victorian...

Fox's

Fox's is an Irish bar that's far enough away from most things that it's firmly a local's place. They don't mind strangers, but everyone knows everyone else and they seem to like it that way. The Guinness is very pleasant,...

The Dolphin

Walking into the Dolphin, you could be forgiven for thinking that you'd stumbled into one of the many second-hand furniture or faux antique stores that permeate Sydenham. Panelled walls, board floors and the sort of dining...

The Windmill

Ex-Wetherspoon (as far as we can tell), this is a cavernous pub not far from Sydenham station which has turned into a modern local. It was very empty when we were in last, but apparently gets busier in the evenings and at...

The Woodman

This rather unremarkable pub is fairly prominent at the junction of three roads not far from Sydenham station. There's lots to keep the locals occupied, from karaoke to a quiz to sport on the tellies inside. Nothing was on the...

The Bricklayer's Arms

Owned by Youngs, this is an unpretentious fairly local pub that does everything a pub is supposed to. A Victorian pub rebuilt in the '20s, it was damaged six times by falling bombs during WWII. Its spacious interior offers...

Bridge House Tavern

The gentrification of Penge begins, as this old boozer gets relaunched by the team behind <a href="http://fancyapint.com/pubs/pub2357.html" target="_blank">The Rye</a> in Peckham. We'll be down...

Dartmouth Arms

Once a struggling Courage pub, this one's been taken firmly down the gastro road and has benefited for it - it's now wallpapered and gastro-green and when we were in last, the food smelled fantastic. Perhaps surprisingly, it...

Question

A useful addition to the drinking options available in Forest Hill, Question is firmly in the bar camp but it's not the sort of sterile style joint that makes you feel unwelcome - completely the opposite in fact. This one does...

Jack Beard's At The Crooked Billet

Enjoying a clientele ranging from old men to quiet kids, its range of patrons results in a more pleasant drinking experience than in much of Penge. Even the pub dog seemed to be friendly enough. You wouldn't race to get here,...

Alexandra

A rather darkly lit boozer, governed over by the sort of landlord who you wouldn't argue with at closing time. Saying that, the kids who were running about the pub seemed have carte blanche to do so. Sky Sports and a pool table...

The sort of locals' pub that you would expect to find next to a bookies, the Queen Adelaide is not worth your custom.

Market Tavern

A locals' pub in the heart of Penge that will intimidate most newcomers, the Market Tavern is best left to its regular clientele.

The Bell

Despite the name, Bell Green isn't a pastoral idyll in SE26; in fact its major landmarks (huge Gas holders and a giant Sainsbury's) tell a common tale of post-industrial Britain. Given those changes, it's perhaps a surprise to...

Pawleyne Arms

Another no-frills Penge boozer with the usual beers on tap and a bunch of locals glued to a telly in the corner. Not great then, but there are worse in the neighbourhood.

A reasonably smart, spacious place that's OK for a quick drink. There are two pool tables if you want a game, and a few TVs for sports fans.
