About the Pub

Former Antic pub with a moustache as its logo and with shabby chic decor, and with a relaxed, homely ambience - almost romantic come evenings. Its L-shaped bar leads to a conservatory and an open-to-view kitchen. The clientèle is a mixture of local academia, musicians and people out for an enjoyable time meaning it is always thriving up until closing time. A front patio offers outside drinking. Guest beers have a mainly regional focus, including from newly opened microbreweries. Regular live music. The food offering includes steaks, chops and pies. 8 handpumps. Deptford Bridge DLR station is not far away. An associated business Edna & Roy Pizzarola opened in November 2019 in the adjacent property and is accessible through a door from the pub's main front bar and is open Tuesday to Thursday 6pm-midnight, Friday 6pm-1am, Saturday 5pm-1am. Portobello took over here from Antic in 2020.
