An Irish pub in Forest Hill has been named the best boozer in London.
The Blythe Hill Tavern in Stanstead Road, impressed judges from the Society For The Preservation Of Beers From The Wood (SPBW) with its wide range of fine beers, excellent hospitality and friendly service.
The pub itself is run by Cornelius ‘Con’ Riordan and serves a wide range of well liked beers, its most popular being Dark Star Hophead bitter.
Mr Riordan, originally from Limerick in Ireland, set up the pub 27 years ago and has enjoyed local and far reaching success with customers.
When asked about why he thought Blythe Hill had been voted the winner, he said:
“It’s the quality of the real ale, and the quality of the service.”
The award will be presented to him and his staff on January 28.
