Looking for The Abbot’s Confession
Meeting at the Surrey Docks for a pint of Turburg we walked to Surrey Quays Shopping Centre to take a 47 to Liverpool Street Station to visit The Hamilton Hall. The pub was heaving and did not have the Real Ale we were looking for so we left quickly without indulging.
From the Hamilton Hall, we took a 42 to Tower Bridge south side and visited The Pommelers Rest they did not have the elusive drink but we stayed for a ½ pint of Midland Red.
From the Pommelers Rest we walked to George Street and took a C10 to Elephant and Castle and to The Rockingham Arms. Again, they did not have the libation we were looking for so we moved on to the net pub by taking a 148 to Victoria and Visit Wetherspoons. They did not have the drink either.
Leaving Victoria, we took a train to Bromley South and visited The Richmal Crompton. The pub was busy and they did not have the required pint so we left and took a 208 to Bromley North try out The Greyhound. The pub did not have the Abbot’s Confession but we did have a ½ pint of Lemon Dream.
From the Greyhound, we took a 227 to Penge and had a drink at The Moon and Stars. The pub still did not have the Abbot’s Confession but we had a pint of Midland Red instead.
Then we took another 227 to Crystal Palace and visited The Postal Order. Yet again the pub did not have the Abbot’s Confession but we had for a ½ pint of Blackberry Porter.
Leaving the Postal Order, we took a 208 to Lewisham and visited the last pub of the day, The Watch House for 2 pints of San Francisco to round out the trip.
