The British Oak pub on Old Dover Road has won a national award for the way it keeps its beer.
Landlord Peter Clements won the Excellence In Cellar Standards Award from the firm that owns the pub, Ei Group.
The Oak, which is many Charlton residents’ local pub, still has two separate bars as well as a beer garden and regularly hosts live music and other events.
Clements and his staff were praised for how they look after their beer and glasses, with judges noting “they even consider what type of water is available in their local area to determine how much product is used”.
It beat pubs in Coventry and Stafford to scoop the prize.
