See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Long associated with Blackheath Rugby Club, this M&B pub sits on the edge of the heath. Summer drinkers spill out onto the vast green space (plastic glass use mandated as a licensing requirement) and into the spacious walled garden. The L-shaped bar provides large high and low tables as well as bench seated booths that may accommodate groups. The food is popular, and the Sunday roasts are sought after. 6 handpumps on the single bar. Latterly this pub has operated a card payment only policy. Underwent perhaps its most wide-ranging physical changes in the November 2022 makeover, with the removal of the former atmospheric bar counter in the front bar with its historic bar back embellishments, now only a vestige of the latter remains. This has become an area of extra seating.
