The south-east of London has its own form of medicine: craft beer, dispensed at new relaxed boozer London Beer Dispensary, where the bar is replaced by a barrel and the ale is poured right out of the casks.
The guys of Late Knights Brewery are behind the Dispensary, so except quite a few of their brews – bitter Morning Glory will give you the kick you need. Other interesting names, all from small, independent brewers, include Heavy Industry’s Nelson’s Eye, citrusy with notes of tropical fruits, or the pink lady cider.
The food comes in the shape of buns and patties with pints of chips that you can enjoy in the beer garden on warm days and nights.
Best Bars tip: The place packs out pretty quickly, but you can take booze and grub away.
