From Monday 28th June there will be a Come- All - Ye at Foots Cray.
Join us at
The Seven Stars, Foots Cray High Street (next door to Lidl).
The pub dates from the 1600s and is distinctive for its Kent Weather boarding exterior. Park in the exterior area of Lidl's car park, or take the bus. The 51, R1, and R11 stop nearby. The A20 is a couple of minutes away.The pub serves a perfectly quaffable draught Courage Best.
All acoustic music and song will be welcome, and we love to jam.
There is live music at The Seven Stars on Fridays, and the landlord is keen to have us there. Tonight when we dropped in we found it very quiet, and the few regulars in there were all over 40, and enthusiastic about us being there. One or two have even asked to join in. Come along and join us at 8.30 every Monday.

Great news GF, a historic riverside pub with real ale at £2.25 a pint, a garden, friendly locals, a welcoming landlord and accessible by public transport, excellent venue, what's the catch?!

I think you'll find the R1 doesn't quite make it to Footscray but the 233, 321 and 492 do and they all run late services

That puts it a direct bus ride away from Bexleyheath, Dartford, Eltham, Greenhithe, Lee, Lewisham, New Cross, Orpington, Sidcup, Swanley, St Mary Cray, Welling and Woolwich - now that sounds well connected for anyone who wants a drink without driving!

Plus you can do your shopping next door before you go in :-)

The football match that night is Brazil v Chile - not a lot of local interest but The Seven Stars will be showing the match a bit further round the pub and at low volume

So you can join in the session and check the score from time to time or ignore the football altogether

Also you could of course watch the football and ignore the session but I'm not sure I should be suggesting that .........

Can any other part of the country compete with this

Monday - Seven Stars at Footscray
Tuesday - The British Oak at Blackheath
Wednesday - Folkmob at Eltham
Thursday - Change of Horses at Farnborough
Friday - Orpington Friday Folk at ..... Orpington

the total distance from Blackheath to Farnborough calling in at all the other venues is 12.4 miles

I live 5.2 miles from the British Oak and 7.9 miles from the Change of Horses.

Who's a lucky boy then!

YES!!!!

Excellent venue, very appreciative locals (moved to photography!) and some wonderful performers turned up - this could run and run.

Already we have sussed out the garden as a potential festival site

The garden runs down to the River Cray - could have gone paddling but recommend Crocs in case of glass. A historic country pub with the genuine atmosphere but surrounded by industry - you wouldn't have known.

The barmaid was an instant convert and reckoned we were cool!!!

I am well pleased with this pub. No intrusive t.v. or machines. In fact the t.v. in the restaurant area was off ! They appear to have a reasonable lunchtime menu, at a sensible price, so might go shopping at Lidl one lunchtime, and sit out in the extensive garden. There are plenty of bench tables at pub level, and then it is stepped down to three more at the riverside. There were ten of us tonight, but there is seating for around twenty in the restaurant area. The beer was nicely chilled, and the locals, and bar staff extremely appreciative.

Look forward to seeing you Rob - and bring Paul anyway! this group caters for all standards - join in when you can or just listen and admire

According to Danielle the barmaid, the pub is normally empty by 9.30 on a Monday and she reckoned that the seven locals stayed late purely because of us. Also one group were disappointed that their friends had left just before we arrived, said they would have loved it!

The three in the garden appeared to be ignoring us until ten to eleven when a voice came through the open door saying "let's have a Leonard Cohen one!"

Pete - you might have missed the thread name on the lyrics and knowledge page. Unless it is refreshed by postings every day, it can even drop off the page. Mudcat members have a personal page, and can trace threads, giving them a personal list on their personal page .I would have thought though, that The Foresters thread would be more likely to drop off the page. I'm going to put some links into the new website, and this should help.

GF: I won't be able to make tomorrow's session after all. Doc's ordered me to stay mainly still and quiet with elevated leg until at least Wednesday. Only allowed to stay within 200 yards of home and "absolutely no question" of me going to Orpington and beyond on public transport.

I must say, the way I feel right now, I'd be surprised if I felt up to it tomorrow anyway. Bit optimistic so soon post-op.

Hope I can make it next week.

OK, I've been doing some research

As far as I can see, although having once been one of the major beers of London, coming from the East End of London, and despite having been merged into one of the major brewers in the UK - Bass Charrington - there is currently no beer in the UK under the name of Charringtons

I stand to be corrected if anyone knows better

Courage Best is brewed by Wells and Youngs of Bedford

Would be really great to have you there Pierre

No station nearby but get the train to Sidcup then 51 bus towards Orpington. Go to Foots Cray Post Office which is half a mile down the hill from Sidcup High Street, get off immediately the bus turns right at the Foots Cray traffic lights and walk back a few yards to Foots Cray High Street as if the bus had gone straight on.

Going back the 51 goes to Welling Station or connects with the 286
