Streets of London

Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Ladywell is a locale in Lewisham in South East London, England, and a ward in the London Borough of Lewisham between Brockley, Crofton Park and Lewisham proper. It has ample green space including Ladywell Fields and Hilly Fields which borders Brockley. Ladywell Village, the main shopping area along Ladywell Road, was given a facelift in 2013 with £800,000 of Transport for London funding. The pavements were widened, short stay bays created to help local businesses and shoppers, and trees were added. Ladywell Village has a range of retail outlets including a number of cafes, a patisserie and a delicatessen. “

Pub name Name Address Description
Hither Green & District Railwaymens Social Club Manor Lodge, 19 Beacon Road Hither Green SE13 6EQ Club with 200 local members with a wide range of entertainment, including bands, quizzes and twice-weekly bingo, and facilities like snooker, darts and televised sports.
Station Hotel 14 Staplehurst Road Hither Green SE13 5NB A large, much loved and well patronised 1906 pub and hotel. Situated at a crossroads the sun pours in during the day, with an evening ambience of casual and well thought out elegance. It has a popular dining area separate from the bar, serving good quality food. The garden area is quite a suntrap plus in summer there is also outside seating to the front of the pub. The bar area is pleasantly uncluttered though there is still a mixture of open and more private areas. Look out for the railway themed area, complete with train-carriage-like luggage racks and old suitcases. The regular beers are from Timothy Taylor. Leased from Greene King, the pub was acquired by Young’s as pub operator from Redcomb Pubs in January 2019.
Dacre Arms 11 Kingswood Place Lewisham SE13 5BU In every sense an end-of-terrace back street local pub somewhat hidden on the Blackheath / Lee / Lewisham borders. A family run house split into 3 large double boothed areas with a bar on the side. Internal décor includes the archetypal Courage high dark wood panelling and leaded windows all beautifully preserved. Lots of wall decorations and trinkets on window ledges and shelves. Has a quiet well appointed garden drinking area accessed by grand old wooden double doors from the bar. Until recently had a rather rare enamel outline Courage cockerel on the building’s tiled front fascia but this has been covered now with plastic signs. 6 handpumps. A trial started in August 2022 to give a 5% discount on alcohol products bought using cash.
Ladywell Tavern 80 Ladywell Road Lewisham SE13 7HS A contemporary pub, ex-Bass Charrington. The building has origins from the mid-19th century but has been subsequently altered and is now of Art-Deco style with U-shaped interior around a central bar, with exposed brick walls and floorboards. Has a small rear courtyard. Quiz night Thurs evening. DJs on Fridays and alternating with live music on Saturday. Is operated by Laine’s as part of a “managed expert” partnership arrangement with Stonegate.
Lewisham Tavern 1 Lee High Road Lewisham SE13 5LD Former Ind Coope pub which has had several incarnations including one as “One” then back to “White Hart” as a bar and pizzeria with an emphasis on late night opening. Closed early September 2017 over licensing issues. Re-opened April 2018 as Lewisham Tavern with new bright external lighting and a thoroughly updated interior and relaunched to try to be a community local. Real ale was introduced when the pub re-opened with 2 handpumps. Multiple HD TV screens always showing sport. A pool table is hidden round the corner of the dog-leg floor. Ladies’ toilets are upstairs.
Rising Sun 120 Loampit Vale Lewisham SE13 7SN A friendly local pub fairly close to Lewisham railway station. Under new management and refurbished in 2020. There is a large beer garden to the rear.
Watch House 198-204 Lewisham High Street Lewisham SE13 6JP On a busy high street by a thriving street market, this Wetherspoon establishment has plenty of capacity. Ceiling supports, disguised as book shelves create lots of different seating areas to choose from. Despite being well-lit, the interior can at times appear to be a little dark. The best place to enjoy breakfast is sitting in sunshine by the windows at the front. Tables and chairs may be placed outside on the pavement forecourt in good weather. It is always a popular pub with the nature of the clientele changing during the pub’s long day. One of the world’s creakiest staircases leads to the upstairs toilets. Quiz night is Wednesday.
