An ok pub with pool table and a few screens for football and Irish sports. Not great for beer though.

A proper old-fashioned London pub... I'd been in it once or twice for midweek football on the TV but it was only when I went there for the same thing on a Sunday afternoon that I realised the Pawleyne is a genuine Irish pub. I was hoping to see a Premiership game on the big screen but it was showing Cork v Galway (or something) hurling instead. The football was on a smaller screen, but the place was packed out with Irish families. A possible hangover from the 19th century when that corner of Penge was settled by navvies working on the Crystal Palace?

I know some are nonplussed that beers in the triangle have broken the £4 barrier but £285 for a Guinness is surely a touch on the high side to be called cheap ;)

He did say quite cheap, and it is quite cheap compared to some place in the area.

Welcome to the forum Colin, hope to see more posts from you :)

we tried this again and the guiness is still only 2.85. it is very good guiness.
it was busy here and people were dressed up on friday. the football was on but so was the music.
it is dark on one side and bright round the other. the toilets smell strong and need some cubes.
overeall the punters are from the penge area.
we kleft at about 9.10pm and got on a bus,

"The toilets smell strong and need some cubes." That is the best sentance I have read on Virtual Norwood all year and possibly ever.

have been a way for a while and decided to try the pawlyne after getting out and decided to make it our local and go no where else because it is not too fur and the guiness is good. guiness gone up a tad to 2.95 and the outside has been tarted up and looks nice. it is rhubarb and custard style. the inside isn still carpeted and has an outside part where you can smoke and chain your bikes. the buses still stop outside one of them is a 356 and is one of the small ones. you can also get a big one.
over the road is a lidl and a sainsburys and every thing you need in life. the tram stop is quite far burt if you need it you can get a bus.
we arrive quite early and are normally gone by nine.

A friend of mine once told me that local crims planned getaway tactics on the bar at the Pawleyne Arms using little corgi cars. Still makes me smile every time I go past the place :lol:

When i was a lad the local blaggers used "Dinkie" cars in our pub - far more cultured then corgi and i do believe at least one sawn off was a Purdey gun !

Saw a notice on the door yesterday, looks like another pub has bitten the dust.

Not sure about this one. went a few nights back but the doors were closed and locked. we thought it were a lock in but only 2.35 in the after noon. went past last night in a van and all the doors were open could see a big man with short hair and a tatoo behind the jumper, tried to geta good look but the van was going too fast. could not see if all the equipment was still there but definitely looks open.
