Pub name Name Address Description

British Oak 109 Old Dover Road Blackheath SE3 8SU This is an attractive and imposing 3 storey building with ground and first floor veranda style coverings. For many years a Courage pub and was usually present in the early CAMRA Good Beer Guides. Traditional sports oriented front public bar and a separate saloon to the right rear still fitted out with dark wood wall panelling from the Courage era. Bar counter in public bar has 4 handpumps and that in saloon has 4 handpumps too. Food from the Pieminister range is available until 9.15 daily. Outside there is seating on the paved area to the front and a pleasant garden to the rear. Sloped ramps ease access to both bar entrances.
Green Goddess 43A Vanbrugh Park Blackheath SE3 7AA A former Barclays Bank branch, closed in January 2021, has been converted into a pub with a planned integrated microbrewery by the Common Rioters brewery team and opened in July 2022. A basic wooden bar counter has been installed equipped with 2 handpumps and with 20 wall keg taps on a white tiled bar back, the latter dispensing beers, cider and wine. Seating is at low canteen style tables and chairs. Panoramic street views of the Royal Standard roundabout to watch the world go by is through large windows. A brewery is being installed and is visible at the far right hand end of the bar room which now has its latest possible opening date in the first half of 2024. 2 handpumps for ever changing cask ales. Teas, coffees and bar snacks comprising Cheese and Charcuterie Boards are available and sometimes a street food supplier sets up in a corner of the bar floor. Card payment ONLY, no cash accepted.
Hare & Billet 1A Eliot Cottages, Hare & Billet Road Blackheath SE3 0QJ Located on the edge of Blackheath village overlooking the open expanse of the heath itself and with a small pond opposite. Has a rustic feel and a bare-boarded floor throughout. There is a raised seating area to the right and a restaurant area at the rear.

Princess of Wales 1A Montpelier Row Blackheath SE3 0RL Long associated with Blackheath Rugby Club, this M&B pub sits on the edge of the heath. Summer drinkers spill out onto the vast green space (plastic glass use mandated as a licensing requirement) and into the spacious walled garden. The L-shaped bar provides large high and low tables as well as bench seated booths that may accommodate groups. The food is popular, and the Sunday roasts are sought after. 6 handpumps on the single bar. Latterly this pub has operated a card payment only policy. Underwent perhaps its most wide-ranging physical changes in the November 2022 makeover, with the removal of the former atmospheric bar counter in the front bar with its historic bar back embellishments, now only a vestige of the latter remains. This has become an area of extra seating.
Railway 16 Blackheath Village Blackheath SE3 9LE The nearest pub to Blackheath railway station. Has had various identities over the years. Once an Ind Coope pub then went through a Fairway & Firkin stage and now back to a railway identity. Busy pub especially at weekends when security door staff may be in evidence.

Painted throughout in grey green pastel shades with a semi-rustic or semi-domestic theme with some eclectic furniture. Several high tables and chairs. Obvious food presence. 4 handpumps on the bar counter. Reopened Tuesday 27th February 2018 after a significant refurbishment which shortened the length of the bar counter to make way for more restaurant seating at the rear and reduced the number of handpumps from 5 to 4.
Royal Standard 44 Vanbrugh Park Blackheath SE3 7JQ A large prominent pub, this venue attracts a mixed crowd in a good-natured atmosphere. Re-opened in May 2015 after a refurbishment which has added pastel coloured contemporary décor and new seating and tables and definitely a greater emphasis on the food offering. 5 handpumps. Latterly this pub has operated a card payment ONLY, no cash accepted policy.
Zerodegrees 29-31 Montpelier Vale Blackheath SE3 0TJ The first to open (in 2000) in a small chain of restaurant bars each with its own in-house brewery designed along German lines.

Full scale restaurant facilities with open to view kitchen and pizza oven. Closed in mid 2013 for major refurbishment and expansion and re-opened in time for Christmas 2013. Excellent views across Blackheath and an outside drinking area out the front. In-house beers can be taken away in sealed metal containers for home or party quaffing.
