See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Sparrowhawk is on the northwest apex of the Crystal Palace triangle. The pub has been completely re-styled from its former identity of the Hollybush. Clear windows and pine furniture give it a modern look. A few minutes (uphill) walk from Gipsy Hill Station, it is also served by many buses. The guest beer will be locally brewed, and changes monthly. Recent choices have included Sambrook's and Late Knights. The unusual name is chosen from a suggested solution to the abundance of sparrows at the Crystal Palace in Victorian times.
