See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Re-opened after a refurbishment in October 2015, the first of the new Hippo Inns chain of managed pubs, a joint venture between Ei (formerly Enterprise Inns) and Rupert Clevely (founder of Geronimo Inns). The renaming from the Hob to the Signal harks back to its original name of the Railway Signal Hotel. A large, light and airy Victorian pub using mainly pastel shades of decoration, sitting on a high pavement opposite Forest Hill railway station, offering real ale, craft keg beers and an extensive wine list. Inside it is on three wooden floored levels with an L-shaped bar counter on the ground floor which is equipped with 3 handpumps. Upstairs is Georgi's Bar Rotisserie & Grill. Clearly a food orientated venue. To the right hand side is a paved and partly covered outside patio.
