The Crown, Blackheath

I haven't been into this pub since it's refurbishment, and the décor is greatly improved. It's clean and plenty of space to mingle about. Even with being a Sunday and having the rugby on, I could still catch a glimpse of the TV and I didn't have someone's elbow in my head all afternoon. Making this a great place to come and have a pint.
I went there for a Sunday lunch with my parents and their friends, and I have definitely had better experiences else where. When our food arrived - which was actually quite quick, 5-10 mins after ordering - we had our starters arrive at the same time, and when asked for my mains to be taken back while I had my starter the waitress was quite stroppy about it, as if I had asked something difficult. Generally the food was okay, with the veg either over or under cooked, but filling and reasonably priced. We had the same reaction from our waitress when she had brought the wrong pudding, it's not hard to apologise for a simple mistake. No one came to check we were okay at any point, or if we enjoyed our meal. I'm hoping this was a one-off.
Drinks are pretty standard, but about 5 or 6 ales on. Wine list & spirits is pub standard stuff too.
Overall, nice enough for a pint, especially during the summer, but I think they need to have some dedicated waiting staff or at least experienced staff who can deal with serving food and running the bar.

The Prince Albert, Greenwich

Changed it's name to The Prince of Greenwich now. I've been in there once and would rather go to the Union or Richard I. I had a BLT which had cold bacon. The cider was nice but expensive, and the atmosphere was terrible.

Very good pub with a great range of drinks. Awesome staff too! Very friendly and a great help when you don't know what to drink.
