Settled at the top of the hill and next to Blackheath train station, this pub dates back to Victorian and is super cosy in winter and bright and airy in summer. The friendly and efficient staff will serve you a great selection of beers and wines, cocktails too, and the Sunday Roast is to put it lightly huge – and great value for money. Apparently there is also a roof terrace somewhere but I haven’t quite found it yet – maybe next time. The decor is a cross between gastro pub and traditional – but it is nicely done and works well. The pub seems to offer something for everyone and there seems to be all age ranges, locals and those from slightly further afield.
It is very easy to while away the hours here, and if like me you do and then cant quite be bothered to walk back down the hill and through the park – remember that handy train station and let the train take the strain!
