NEW! The Coach and Horses, Burnhill Road, Beckenham 020 8650 9142. 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month. 7:30 - 10pm. Our reviewer says: "It's a tiny pub, with only a 3-piece house band (bass going through the PA, one speaker of which doing duties as a monitor), playing at a very comfortable volume. There's a local car park nearby, free on Sundays, and the beer's reasonable (Doom Bar)."
