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...

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.

Queen Adelaide

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

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,...

Hop Exchange

Recently refurbished after a fire, the Hop Exchange is a curious place. Boxing photos cover the walls alongside adverts for a Brixton arm wrestling contest run by 'Mr. X', and numerous signs warning against drug salesabuse. On...

Apparently under new management - we'll have to get back to it and check it out.

Anerley Arms

One of the better pubs in a poor area for drinking. The Anerley Arms has a cosy wood and carpeted interior and is usually a quiet place. It's a handy place to meet up at Anerley station. Conan Doyle fans may wish to visit as...

Golden Lion

Once upon a time, the Lion was the only real-ale free-house for miles around. It was, in those days, run like a country pub; all the regulars' pewter pots hanging from the bar, and their heads firmly wedged up their own...

Goldsmith's Arms

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.

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 Thicket Tavern

Housed in a large and imposing building, the Thicket Tavern is a fairly unremarkable place. There are some seats outside but they're too close to the main road to be enticing. The pub has regular band nights which may be worth...

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.

Paxton Arms

In the summer of 1944, a German V1 bomb put the Paxton Arms out of business. It was, however, eventually rebuilt and the pub reopened in 1955. Inside, the pub still has the layout of something from the 1950s, with the central...

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....

Grape and Grain (ex Jack Beards at the Palace)

Where to start with the Grape & Grain? Formerly a succession of mediocre pubs, followed by the truly terrible Jack Beards at the Palace, the renamed and refurbished Grape and Grain opened in April of 2009 with the idea...

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.

Westow House

This was one of the first pubs in the area to be reshaped into a bar, so it's not really that much of a surprise that when it changed from Bluebottle to Westow House the bar stylings and attitude were retained. It's a hanger of...

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...

This review is a good example of one that must be read in context. If you want a proper pint in a proper pub around here, you are not spoilt for choice. In this light the Albert is a godsend and a solid three pinter. On our...

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,...

Dr W.G. Grace

Average beer on tap, typical pub grub, a pretty unremarkable place in all. Fine for a jar or two, but undeserving of a special visit.
