Pubs in the region

As Londoners at Cozee, we cherish our weekly visits to the local pub. Why not embrace the same in your new living space? We’ve diligently tested and reviewed all the pubs in Anerley – well, not literally, but we wish we had! Here’s our list of the finest pubs in Anerley.

Pub name Name Address Description
Douglas Fir 144 Anerley Rd Anerley SE20 8DL The Douglas Fir opened in November 2016 in premises formerly occupied by a hairdresser, and situated roughly half-way between Crystal Palace and Anerley rail/London Overground stations. It is operated by the Gipsy Hill Brewing Company, and is their first outlet. Although similar in appearance to many micropubs, the owners consider the enterprise as a bar.
Bar Fusion 1-3 Witham Rd Birkbeck SE20 7YA Re-opened on 17th June 2023 as a music and disco orientated bar. Still in a period of transition from being Grace’s Bar & Grill. If not totally rebuilt the pub has certainly been substantially renovated with the glazed roof creating an air of light and spaciousness. The spiralling interior brick columns are of interest. The pub is ideally located for train, tram and bus travellers alike. Dogs are not permitted in the pub. Please check their Facebook page for up to date information and events. (As of 10th July 2023, cask ale status has yet to be decided – two hand pulls present)
