You can vote for more than one, so figures do not indicate the number of people who have voted.

Hmmmm, this poll is made a bit tricky for me, mainly due to the inclusion of Tapastry, which would get my vote for favourite local restaurant, but isn't a pub according to my definition. Can I vote twice, once for Tapastry and once for my favourite pub?

As a new resident to the area I must admit I've hardly been to any of the pubs round here. So I've voted for my local, the Bricklayers. I'm interested to see where others recommend though... I think I've only been there and the Dartmouth Arms so far..

Can't you just vote for both? You can run a separate restaurant poll in future if you want. However, you can still just go to Tapastry for drinks if you want without eating so it does qualify I'd say.

No Angle Bar?

There's an awful lot of taverning here: the Railway Tavern (Telegraph), the Moor Park Tavern (Hotel) and the Forest Hill Tavern (am I forgetting somewhere - does this exist?).

And if we must have the Moor Park Hotel can we not have the Swiss Cottage please?

That is now permanently closed I believe. I don't think it stayed open enough to justify a posthumous inclusion a la MPT

As for Swiss Cottage, I would have liked to see that place myself.

I think the only issue here is the inclusion of the word "pub" in the question. It is obvious (to me) that michael was intending to cover all (on trade) licensed establishments where one might, conceivably, choose to consume a beverage without necessarily the accompaniment of food.

Does that help?

Yep a real pub, no food just beer, although crisps, peanuts and pork scratchings are aloud.
That should trim the list down a bit.


One loud voice can make a difference !

Ian - do the curators of the Victorian exhibits at the Horniman know that you have left your glass case? Or have they simply allowed you internet access in there?

Rob is right. I was primarily focusing on places to drink. We can always do restaurants in another vote later.

I also wanted to emphasis the fact that we have quite a good choice of drinking establishments in the area, 16 is not a bad count and I don't think I have missed many more.

Doesn't matter - it sells booze and lets you drink it on the premises. And didn't have a 200-post fawning thread on the old forum, which is appealing in itself.

Real pubs in FH? Umm, the BHT, the General Napier, and perhaps the Railway Telegraph. Oh and as I am being kind the Dartmouth, as the front looks bar still looks like a pub, even if they have lost their bar billards. The Bricklayers was a fine pub, but (a) is in Sydenham and (b) was pretty bad last time I was there.

See:

Not a single vote for 'local pub for local people', the Forest Hill Hotel?

Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever seen it mentioned on this forum.

Yes, I'm surprised it has none, but I guess it would be hard for it to be a 'favourite' as there are few "unique" aspects of it, however it is the closest pub to a percentage of residents so you think it might get one or two (especially seeing some of the others here that have some votes).

BD (and you CAMRA lot out there), do you not think this is an ideal candidate for an "authentic" pub for SE23? It has the pool table (I seem to recall), darts board, etc. It is a big place. I would have thought that all it needs is a manager with drive, some unusual ales, and a bit of a budget to market it and get the word out, and it could be a reasonable business.

Anyone know who owns it?

Reinforces the poverty of drinking establishments here to me.

In no way is the Dartmouth a 'real pub'. You don't get sneered at for not eating in a 'real pub'.

Surprised someone can remember the Swiss Cottage, but not the Forest Hill Tavern. Now called the FHT and a gastro pub - might even be in SE22!
