A charming and homely pub with a good vibe. There are different bar areas each with its own character. Good selection of keg and cask ales and a open kitchen serving good, reasonably priced food. The staff are very friendly and the service good. It has a quiz night on Mondays, compered by a charming and entertaining quiz master.

Shirley is an area of South West London, within the London Borough of Croydon. It borders the London Borough of Bromley. It is located east of Croydon, and 10 miles (16.1 km) south south-east of Charing Cross. Until the 1930s Shirley consisted of a few hamlets between farms and the estates of the large houses. Shirley Oaks was one of these and was originally Shirley Lodge Farm. The 17th Century farm house was situated on Shirley Road and was demolished in the 1996. There was a farm lodge on Wickham Road which marked the farm entrance, now called Shirley Oaks Road. In 1903 the farm was replaced by the Shirley School, a totally self-contained model village with houses for the children to live in small groups. These were names after flowers and trees, Acacia to Yew. Some of the original buildings are now converted to flats in addition there are many new houses. To continue the naming, every road in the development is alphabetically named after a flower. The exclusivity of the area and two hectares of open space have made the place popular. The area lies encapsulated near the high street with just two main roads linking to Shirley and Addiscombe. Shirley Oaks Village is home to the only hospital in Shirley, private healthcare centre Shirley Oaks Hospital.
