Travel to Whyteleafe away 26 July

There are rail engineering works at London Bridge affecting Southern services leaving from the terminus platforms, therefore the regular stopping train from London Bridge to Whyteleafe calling all stations via Forest Hill is not running. However, Southern Trains have kindly laid on a half hourly "football special" starting from South Bermondsey and calling all stations via Tulse Hill and Crystal Palace. These trains depart South Bermondsey at 29 & 59 past the hour, total journey time from there to Whyteleafe 50 mins.

Anyone needing to start from London Bridge can get a fast train to East Croydon and change there. Anyone using the stations from New Cross Gate to Anerley can still get a London Overground service and change at Norwood Junction for the Whyteleafe train. There is also an additional half hourly service from Victoria to Whyteleafe calling all stations via Balham and Selhurst, so four trains an hour in total from East Croydon.
I've linked a map showing the ground location below. Although Whyteleafe South station looks closest that's an illusion. There's really nothing in it distance/time wise (probably just over 5 mins walk). Salmons Lane is a very steep narrow hill with no footpath and the ground entrance is exactly where the tip of the arrow is, so use Whyteleafe station. There's a decent clubhouse outside the turnstiles, to the left as you enter the ground from Church Road. Personally I've always preferred the clubhouse to the Whyteleafe Tavern, and it's generally served London Pride and sometimes guest real ales too.

Not sure if it affects but you can also get a train to Upper Warlingham with a 5 minute longer walk but the added bonus of going past food shops and the Whyteleafe tavern. Upper Warlingham is on the East Grinstead line

Like Ian, I recommend going past the Whyteleafe Tavern. In fact if you walk the direct route from Upper Warlingham (down Station Road and then St Lukes Road), you don't need to go anywhere near it.

And after the match you can all go back to Ian's place for tea.

would you recommend going into the Whyteleafe Tavern? Past experience of that hostelry have a bit like purgatory, not bad, not great. BTW how's the bar at the ground these days. Always used to have a great selection of ales until the chap that ran it left but in recent years its been on and off. Back to a niece selection of ales I hope?

I'm not a big fan of the Tavern but the guy who runs it works hard to push the community spirit thing. I just don't like the atmosphere in there and have never found it particularly comfortable. Might be different in a group of mates going to an away game.

In the bar we have two real ales on almost all of the time. They tend now to be unusual Greene King beers and occasionally the ubiquitous IPA (one of my least favourite beers of all time). Last weekend was a bit of a disaster as the cooling in the cellar failed so the ale was vile and the lager came out as giant gobs of froth. Hopefully this will be sorted out long before the weekend!

The local people have the knowledge, its being put on here for those not local. Lee, a pub is a pub to many even if it is 2 mins further
