This premises is now the Portland Arms. It is about a 15 minute downhill walk from Norwood Junction station. On my late Saturday afternoon visit, it was quite busy. Service was a bit disorganised. One guy beat me to the bar and got served quite quickly. As soon as he walked away, the barmaid wandered off to deliver food for somebody before coming back to the bar with said food, only to work out it was for a large group who had been keeping the second barmaid busy with whatever they were ordering. Portland Arms Best Bitter is the house beer, brewed by Sambrook's. Guests were Bexley's Own & Truman's Zephyr. It seems to be very much a community pub. Customers were spilling out into the garden at the rear and there were many families. I'm not averse to kids in pubs. But, the screeching from one particular child was too much to bear. So, I supped up and left as soon as possible.

Knew this as The Prince of Denmark - had the best Irish band going and a really good sound system for its time - it was the late 80's afterall!! Awesome steak sandwhiches for lunch, too,!

The barman asked me where he could score coke from on one of my first visits there. Admittedly it was 2 years ago.
