See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A mock Tudor former Courage pub that rises up next to the bridge it is named after. Bare wooden floor with tiling around the bar counter. Mixture of high and low seating and a pool table in the front room. The rear room has padded bench seating and some raised booths and has an open-to-view kitchen. This pub was saved from permanent closure in 2012 following a strenuous local campaign and was named 2013 CAMRA South East London branch Pub of the Year while run by Antic Group. The pub closed again shortly thereafter, suffered serious fire damage to the upper floors in March 2015, then finally reopened at the end of March 2017 under new ownership. In June 2023 the pub was acquired by Portobello Brewery who subsequently reinstalled handpumps, the previous operator having removed them in 2021. Quiz night Wednesday.
