According to the Lost Pubs Project the pub closed in 1912 and has since been demolished.

The Kentish Mercury says it was a beer house under consideration for closure due to redundancy in 1908.

 

Kentish Mercury, Saturday 14 May 1881.

Mr. S. Lynch applied for the transfer of the "Two Brewers," Deptford. He appeared on behalf of the freeholder. Mr. Hay opposed on behalf of Mr. Robinson, the previous tenants. Mr. Lynch stated that Mr. Robinson had yielded up possession of the house some 12 months ago, and his client had also got judgement against him before the High Court of Chancery. The present tenant, Mr. G. A. Martin., held from his client and arrangement for 12 months with the proviso that at the end of that time he could purchase for 1,250.

Mr. Hay, on behalf of Mr. Robinson, argued that the mortgagee had no power to grant an agreement as he held the original lease. A document was produced showing the lease to have been duly passed over to the mortgagee.

The Bench said they had nothing to do with the technical questions. It appeared that Mr. Robinson had left the house and that Mr. Martin held possession under an agreement, and as his character was not impugned, the licence would be granted.
