Good Companions, CR6 9AW
- Tithepit Shaw Lane
This large pub on the very border of Greater London closed in 2012, and is set to be demolished to become a Lidl supermarket according to an e-mail from the editor of the Sanderstead News.
Sitting back off the road behind a large car park area, this place has a patio overlooking the busy main road. Inside, large wooden tables are lined up along the front window photo, with the bar behind, and a small, darker area with a pool table to one side.
The bar has three handpulls for ale, with Fuller's ESB and Westerham British Bulldog (£3), as well as London Pride (off on Ewan's visit), on a July 2009 visit. The pub appears to regularly offer a Westerham ale, as the brewery is based nearby. The beer was well-kept. Otherwise, draught options are fairly standard, and include Bulmer's cider.
There's a basic food menu, including a few vegetarian options, with cheap meals advertised prominently. Music was playing on Ewan's visit.
