Isn't the Ivy House no longer a "pub" but now only open for "events"?

Also Nick, despite your campaign to appropriate everything from Southwark to Eltham as "Greater Brockley", you missed the "festival" at the Old Nun's Head. We caught some really good comedy there on Saturday night, if the rest of the day/night was as good then it was a cracking event.

I've heard the Ivy House is/was a great place but am ashamed to say I've never been. Has it shut down now?

I can vouch for this pub, it's one of the best in the area. They've got a great little stage too and
in days gone by Pink Floyd played there.

@ThNick - thanks, sorry I missed it.

Hmm, it seems I'm out of date. Their plans to turn it into solely an entertainment venue have fallen through so instead they've put in a pizza oven and are doing food, free wi-fi etc.

I went to the Ivy House on sat, with Mr Fabhat, to see King Groovy and the Hornstars. It looks like a tiny rivoli ballroom -it was a great experience watching a 18 piece band from a table 2ft away. Free entry, nice drinks and pizza and a good atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

Did anyone go to the boot fair? There's another one in November I think and was wondering if it was any good before I schlep ALL the way over the hill ;)?

Yep, I did. Bought quite a few bits and the music was good too.
