Surprise107 Upper Shirley Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The Surprise has recently been refurbished, and now serves good quality food, including Sunday lunch and a mussels menu. The pub is situated between Shirley Hills and the Shirley Windmill on bus routes from Croydon and Addington. It is also adjacent to the London Loop. Old photographs on the walls show Shirley when it was a more rural area. A postcard of the pub shows it in Page & Overton livery; it later became a Charrington's house.
