Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Claiming origins in the 17th century, this Shepherd Neame pub seems geographically and stylistically at odds with the post-war mess that is Waterloo: it’s as if a village pub (with a beer garden, no less) had been plonked here and pointed towards some higher being. Hanging flower baskets add colour to the grey surroundings; it might be nice to have a beer outside, but the view, in truth, is pretty grim.

Inside, the Rose & Crown is all dark wood, decorated with snaps of the regulars and black-and-white photographs of bygone local scenes. Standard Shepherd Neame beers, from likeable seasonals and reliable Spitfire to the ever-bland Master Brew, complement lagery stablemates Oranjeboom and Holsten Export. You won’t find any surprises on the food menu.
