Yes trade is down, but then it is in all three local pubs, and in pubs across the country. But the pub won't be closing anytime in the near future.


(Intrigued by what the fabulous news may be...)

The Two Brewers has been my local for donkeys years. I first started using it when a mate moved into a flat in Burdett Rd. Then, you could chalk your name up for a game of darts and if you lost, that was it. You prob. wouldn't get another game for the rest of the evening!! It was that crowded!! I remember going in there one night and Capt. Sensible, his wife and baby were in there all wearing matching red berets, pretty funny!

A lot of money has been spent on the pub, with more to come, why don't you try it

As a licensee and publican it is sad to see pubs closing all over. I don't think The Brewers will close and as for trade being quiet in all three locals this is not quite a true fact!! The White Horse is Ticking over very Well !!! It's all about what you put into a pub is what you get out of it !!! you have to spend money to make money in the pub game and that is why things are ok at The White Horse !! i wish Darren well in his new Venture and hope someone comes in to keep the Brewers going. The brewers offers good real ales that are only available at Shepherd Neame Pubs it would be a shame to lose that from within the area.

Happy 1960's memories of the Two Brewers when it was the only pub in Croydon where you could drink Shepherd Neame beer. Unfashionably friendly as well.
