A family-friendly Croydon pub has new licensees and a smart new look, following a refurbishment by brewers Shepherd Neame.

The Two Brewers, in Gloucester Road, a cosy town pub converted from two Victorian cottages, has been redecorated inside and out with freshly-covered seating and a newly-varnished floor.

Licensees John Kitchenside and his wife Diane came to the pub in October following eight years running another pub in Croydon.
John said: “The Two Brewers is a charming, cosy, community pub and this redecoration has restored the building to its former glory.
“We are close to the Crystal Palace football ground and, on match days, we welcome both home and away supporters with our family-friendly ambience before and after the game.”

There is always something to do at the Two Brewers, where customers enjoy regular darts matches, poker evenings, charity quiz nights, live music and karaoke sessions.

John and Diane plan to launch a menu of good-quality, traditional pub favourites in the spring and hope to make the most of the barbecue in the garden during the summer. The beer garden is a pleasant open space with seating and a canopy for smokers, who may also use another covered area at the side of the building.

The pub is open from noon to 11.30pm every day of the week.
