Pub name Name Address Description
Beckenham Rugby Football Club Balmoral Avenue Beckenham BR3 3RD Since summer 2021, the club welcomes CAMRA members who should be prepared to sign in and show their membership card.
Beckenham Sports Club 19 Foxgrove Rd Beckenham BR3 5AS Famous cricket and – in particular – tennis club with a host of world-renowned tennis players on the honours board in the bar. These date back to a time when this venue was used for a pre-Wimbledon warm-up event.
Bricklayers Arms 237 High Street Beckenham BR3 1BN A traditional high-street pub providing a friendly welcome to a clientele of all ages, including families and dogs. The L-shaped bar has wooden flooring with plenty of tables. The interior decor has old photographs of Beckenham, a piano and more eclectic items including an old petrol pump and a super-life size Spider Man on one wall. There is an open log fire in winter and a covered outdoor seating area with heaters and even a TV screen.
Chancery 90 Bromley Road Beckenham BR3 5NP Family-run Victorian local situated between Beckenham and Shortlands with a main U-shaped bar and a separate quiet lounge. The pub reopened as a Gastropub in October 2014 following substantial and sensitive refurbishment and with a new name. The extensive menu changes with the season and no frozen food is used. Casual drinkers are still welcomed – the pub has six handpumps, but away from busy times only three to four will be operational. Admission not allowed after 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
Coach & Horses Burnhill Road Beckenham BR3 3LA A friendly and traditional local convenient for the High Street , and now operated by Town Bar and Sports. The pub was undergoing a major refurbishment in 2020 as the Covid-19 crisis struck, and reopened in August when the work was completed, complete with new exterior signage. There is a large patio at the front with pub with several benches and tables, which have been renovated as part of the refurbishment. The exterior work is also evident in the rear, with a prominent mural of the London skyline on display in the back garden. Internally there are new light fittings, wooden floorings, and new tiling behind the bar. In short, not much has been left unchanged. Well worth a visit if you are in the vicinity of Beckenham High Street. All the photography on this page is after the 2020 refurbishment.
Erin’s 150-154 High Street Beckenham BR3 1EA Re-opened on 22nd September 2023 under a new name “Erin’s” as an AK Whelan pub after a £750,000 makeover. Named after the owner’s daughter, the theme is that of a modern Irish pub with mirrors, bric-a-bric and a dark blue, maroon and gold colour scheme to create what is described as “an opulent effect” along with a striking mural and hanging garden from the ceiling. In the evening, the subdued lighting gives a more intimate atmosphere.
George Inn 111 High Street Beckenham BR3 1AG The George Inn dates back over 350 years and was the last coaching inn on the route to London. The pub attracts a wide age range, although more of a younger crowd attend at weekends. The range of beers has increased in recent years, with 5 or 6 on offer most days. A reasonable choice of food is available and is of the pub grub style – burgers, pies, steak, fish and chips etc. Piped music plays on a 2 hour loop, but is generally not too intrusive. A TV shows BBC News channel (muted, with subtitles) and occasionally football/rugby, if on terrestrial TV.
Jolly Woodman 9 Chancery Lane Beckenham BR3 6NR A friendly traditional local popular with a mixed clientele of all ages for its homely convivial atmosphere and welcoming to visitors. Situated in a quiet street in a conservation area off the main road, this retains the look and feel of a country pub. Built in 1840 as an ale house, this would once have been surrounded by countryside. The front room is small with half-height matchboard panelling, old fixed bench seating and a drinking shelf along with leaded glass in the windows and a stove. The door to the right was once used for off-sales. The bar itself has tongue and groove panelling with a plain and well-worn counter. An opening leads to a larger back room, also with panelling, in an L-shaped configuration created in the 1970s. Toilets are outside across the courtyard.
Langley Park Golf Club Barnfield Wood Road Beckenham BR3 6SZ Access to the bar is currently limited to club members only.
O’Neill’s 9 High Street Beckenham BR3 1AZ The pub opened as a Charringtons pub named the “Golden Arrow” in the 1960’s, complete with a railway signal erected on the pavement outside. A regional British Rail office was located above and behind the pub. The railway connection is now lost, and instead we have a spacious single bar O’Neills with the normal grey/green colour scheme, very convenient for bus, rail and tram travellers alike. Lots of tables and seating, including on the patio in front of the pub. Dogs not allowed inside but permitted on the outside patio. Real ale introduced in March 2014 with three handpumps, In 2018, real ale availability was sadly reduced to Sharp’s Doom Bar only.
Three Hounds Beer Company 57 Beckenham Road Beckenham BR3 4PR This bar/off-licence opened during the 2020 Covid crisis, and as lockdown eased was able to open more fully in Summer 2021. The premises are more spacious than the frontage would indicate, and around 50 customers can be seated over two floors, with more benches at the front of the pub.
West Beckenham Conservative Club Sidney Road Beckenham BR3 4PX
Eden Park 422 Upper Elmers End Road Eden Park BR3 3HQ Despite being a Carvery, this pub has a split-level bar area used by non-diners as well as those having a pre-dinner drink. There is also a large outside drinking area to the front and side of the pub. Also serves breakfast, check with pub for breakfast opening times.
Elm Tree 116 Croydon Road Elmers End BR3 4DF The pub, formerly named to William IV, reopened in March 2015, following a complete refurbishment. There is now a tastefully done comfortable interior retaining original features such as panelling and fireplaces. There is more of an emphasis on food than before – mainly traditional pub fare, and an Irish theme.
