A chance to visit three micropub/bars, none of which were in existence ten years ago.

The evening begins at 7pm at One Inn The Wood.  This pub is close to Petts Wood railway station, and can also be reached by the 208 bus from Central Bromley or Orpington.  The 273, R2, R3 and R7 routes also pass close by.  In all cases, alight at Petts Wood Station.  One in the Wood was Bromley’s first micropub having opened in 2014 on a site previously occupied by a wine bar.   It has won an array of CAMRA awards, including Greater London CAMRA Pub of the Year in 2015.    It is now under new management.

From there we continue by bus 208 to the Hit or Miss.   This new venue opened its doors for the first time on in October 2022, in premises which were previously occupied by a computer repair and sales shop. It describes itself thus: A cafe by day, a microbar by night.   For those joining the social here , use bus routes 61, 208, 261, 320 or 358 from Central Bromley and alight at Southlands Road.    Arrival time is scheduled for 8.30pm.

We end the evening at the Cork n Cask.   Now re-opened on 25th August 2023 as a “micro bar”, previously called the Bitter End Bar.  Single long bar with cold cabinet for cask ales served direct from the barrel.   Scheduled arrival time is 9.30pm.   The pub is a few minutes walk from the Hit or Miss, and there are several bus routes nearby, serving most parts of the borough.
