Nestled in the South-East of London is the borough of Bromley. Once upon a time, Bromley was a market town; that was before the 1200s. It was made into a borough in 1965, along with all the other boroughs of London. There are 12 towns within the borough of Bromley. WeBuyAnyBike has done some scouting around to find some biker-friendly places and repair shops for when you’re paying a visit!
Ye Old Ship
This pub is a piece of Tatsfield history! The original building for The Old Ship was situated in the current car park. Legend tells us that the pub has a history dating back to the 1800s of course, the original owners aren’t around today but that doesn’t hide the history of the walls when you walk in! For a large time span of the 20th century, the pub was owned by Doss Monteith and his son Ian.
In 2016 the pub was bought by Red Oak Taverns who renovated the interior of the pub incorporated the old traditional design. Today the pub is loved by locals and visitors, this doesn’t come as a surprise considering the extensive range of refreshing drinks (there are 65+ gins)! They offer an eat-in or takeaway service with all their dishes – the company favourite seems to be the Barrel and Stone, Stone Baked Pizzas… Also, kids eat FREE!
This inn on Biggin Hill is also a piece of history – this time, it is situated in the town of Westerham. Biggin Hill itself is the place that holds the history, but the grounds of the Aperfield Inn were once the grounds of The Manor of Aperfield. It is unclear when the manor was demolished but it is rumoured to have predated the Battle of Hastings! Today, although the interior is delightfully modern, it does have a twist of history to it also! Formerly known to locals as the ‘Fox and Hound’, you can see evidence of this in certain pieces of artwork displayed upon the walls. When visiting this Village Inns-owned pub, you will be treated to a selection of craft beers, plenty of gin, and many more delicious refreshing drinks. They also have a huge menu for you to feast your eyes on too!
Like many pubs, The Bulls Head was once a coaching inn back in the days of 1575. This pub has recently been taken over by new landlords Stuart and Emma.

Rumour has it that this pub was another favourite of Dick Turpin – we recently featured another favourite of his over on our Newham page… you know, just in case you’re doing the Turpin Trip!
