The borough gains a new micropub with the Lock & Barrel opening this coming Friday, 3rd May. So we asked them to tell us something about the pub and their plans. Sitting on the site of an old ironmongers shop at 18 London Road in Bromley (BR1 3QR), the Lock & Barrel tips a nod to its predecessor, not only with its name, but also its interior.

This provides a welcoming and relaxed environment in which to enjoy a large range of both cask and keg ales alongside some interesting spirit and wine options. The proprietors are committed to providing a regular rotation of beers from breweries across Kent and London as well as the odd offering from further afield, so whether you […..]
