Brockley Jack 410 Brockley Road Brockley SE4 2DH Centuries-old coaching inn, this building dates from 1898. Ex-Courage, from 1994 Magic Pub Co, from 1996 Greene King. Imposing building, red brick with fancy stonework, a whale’s shoulder bone near the top which used to be the pub sign, stone and granite ground floor frontage with large front bay window. Fairly spacious interior, refurbished in 2013. One nice fancy wall of dark wood and mirrors, mix of modern upholstered furniture. The Jack Studio Theatre at rear has been here since the 1990s, see its website Flame Grill chain menu. Nice rear patio with shelter and fairy lights, where smoking is not permitted. Separate small yard behind to the left, where smoking is permitted. 4 handpumps. Greene King house beer “The Brockley Jack” is sold here.
London Beer Dispensary 389 Brockley Road Brockley SE4 2PH Converted from the Mr Lawrence Wine Bar, this pub originally re-opened in 2014 under the ownership of Late Knights Brewery of Penge. With Late Knights Brewery ceasing trading in August 2016 the beer range here changed to include one of that brewery’s reincarnation as Southey, along with brews from other micro-breweries plus ciders. Wines, spirits and soft drinks are also available. Food is available from the next door Pizza operation. Real ale and cider are sold from 5 handpumps against the rear left hand wall. This is a narrow deep venue, wooden boarded throughout. The front room is attractively dark wood wall panelled to head height, a large on-end barrel provides the bar counter and pay point and is fitted with a T bar dispensing keg beers. It is a deep step down to a long corridor with a shelf which accommodates upright drinking and this leads to the rear room which provides more traditional seating. There is a small covered patio garden at the back which is ideal for smokers. The real ale and cider menu is provided on a blackboard high on the wall above the handpumps. Pub policy is to dispense ales and ciders by default in handled pint and half pint mugs so ask if you want a straight glass. Card payment only here, cash not accepted.
