Hello everyone The Catford Bridge Tavern opened tonight in... [drumroll] Catford. Right next to Catford Bridge train station. This is exciting for two reasons. Firstly, it had nine (NINE) cask ales/porters/ciders on and seems like it will continue to have a high number. I tried three of them and they were delicious, I'd never even heard of any of them before. Secondly, it will re-ignite a debate in the area that has quietened lately (since plans to build on the Catford dog track were put on ice) as to whether this pub - an Antic (yay!) gastropub (boo!) - represents gentrification of its lovely neighbourhood and how much of a bad thing that might be. The Catford Bridge Tavern (how about just 'The Cat Tav'?) replaces The Copperfield, whose licence was withdrawn after police found traces of cocaine in the toilets and women were reported to be driven around on the bonnets of cars in nearby streets after closing time.
