Good place to catch up with chums

Met a couple of friends I hadn't seen for ages at the Glamorgan. I think that this pub gets it right on most fronts. Good selection of beers, real ales and wines. Not too noisy so we could chat without shouting. As about half the pub is reserved for customers eating, there is limited casual... read more

I would like to say that I cannot fault the food - this is mainly because I didn't have any. Having arrived at 6:30, the pub was about a third full. We were told that as they were "very busy" our order could not be taken until 7:30. Seemed a bit excessive but we were in no particular rush. When... More

A lovely pub with really good service and excellent food that I wasn't expecting in such a regular looking pub. Its less than 5 mins walk from East Croydon Station and well worth the very short walk. It's superb! Hopefully this is the way other pubs in Croydon will start to go!

Great pub food, even though the drinks are quite pricey -love the Squid starter ! The owner was the chef on a Monday night and was more than pleased to see us ( have not been for a year ) and provided great food. Very hot night so all the doors open -but pub peaceful -and nobody noisy or causing... More

I find the previous reviews a bit confusing considering I had such an excellent experience. Went with 4 friends for dinner and drinks, service was perfect, the chef who I assumed was the owner was very welcoming. Food was excellent and far beyond expectations, we had the chicken bugers and fish cakes. Prices are very reasonable and right near East... More

If you can get past the smokers arrogantly blocking the front door, you'll find a boring range of cask ales, expensive (but OK) food, and little atmosphere. This pub is in decline and these days seems to be attracting clientele who can't communicate without saying f*** every other word. Not an inspiring experience.

Went in for a few drinks one evening with friends I hadn't seen for ages. Didn't stay for very long as the drinks were extortionate and the blonde barmaid was very rude, had a terrible attitude as if it was a huge burden us asking for a few ciders and made us feel very unwelcome. It put a huge dampener... More

I recently met here with a good friend for a couple of drinks and some socialising. The ambience of the place was poor - overlit, without many soft comfortable seating (one of which was a sofa directly next to one of the bars which would ruin any kind of intimate gathering!). Most of the staff were relatively friendly but there... More

We visited this so called gastro pub a few years ago and came up against a vile,stupid woman behind the bar and walked out. As we were walking past the other week thought we would give this place another try. Not a lot has changed. Food for what is put in front of you is well overpriced,with my other half... More

This is an excellent gastropub in unassuming surroundings. It's run by a friendly South African and a number of the dishes and wines are South African, like the delicious bunny chow. Main menu items and specials are clearly displayed or explained (with prices) and service is friendly and attentive. Food is sublime with really tasty fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked and...
