Brockley Jack to close for refurbishment

The Brockley Jack pub in Crofton Park is due to close for refurbishment from July 29th until August 9th. The work will provide the already-handsome pub with a bigger bar, new seating and a bigger garden.

The Brockley Jack theatre will remain open and the programme will continue as normal.

With thanks to Andy.

Wow, it's got a massive bar already. How much more can it be extended?

The garden never seems that busy either, possibly because smokers are not allowed out there. Not that I smoke, but smokers' corner in there always seems rammed.

Good news. Am hoping they will create a garden for us smokers as nice as the one for non-smokers. We like attractive surroundings too! There is a very noisy kitchen extractor by the smokers' garden which doesn't help with the general ambience.

With Jam Circus out of action, the Jack having some down time - MR Lawrence and the pop up beer place (if they ever open) are going to have a captive audience...

No Pub said...

No Jame Circus, No Mr Lawrence and now no Brockley Jack for a week? Yikes! I am glad it isn't shot for any longer.

Not to mention no Honor Oak (does anyone know what is happening there?)
On the Brockley Jack ... I hope they manage to enlarge their beer garden and make it a more inviting place. Sort out their sunday roasts, nice beer garden ... job done.

Hoping for the refurb of the Barge at a certain point.... not really inviting at all.

by the way, for those who don't know. Mr Lawrence is at Brockley Market once a fortnight with a small but excellent range of boozes.

Yeah, I didn't even realise they had a garden, tbh. Definitely a pub with a nice green garden would go down well. Seems to be a bit patio-central round these parts.

I quite liked the Jack when it was a dive about 10 years ago when the "Yorkie man" was a regular. Do they still have those interesting local bands playing?

Sean said...

They boarded it up last week can't see that opening as a pub again

Keep it real said...

Not really inviting, except it's packed out every night of the week. Thank God every pub doesn't have to be stuffed with suits and pseudo suits banging on about the third quarter and projected revenue, with a daily specials boards, prices starting at £15. It's got the broadest slice of Brockley life going, if you don't like it head back to North London.

Reality sucks said...

It is very inviting to people with rough manners who drink too much and often settle their differences with violent behaviour. It is busy because there are generally very few pubs in the area and it is cheap. It is a den of vice full of ne'er do wells and chippy vagabonds who insult the staff and do not know how to behave is civil company. I look forward to the termination of its license after which the clientele will have to decamp, knuckles trailing on the ground, to Deptford, New Cross or some other grim outpost where they can sit around plotting scams, dealing in contraband and stealing each others beer.

I didn't know it had been closed as I never go in anymore. The last refurb made it a boring, characterless pub. Like the furniture section of Debenhams. Will check it out as we need all the pubs we can keep. Hardly any left in the area. Desperately need jam circus open again. The Jack would be good if it was like that as it is a great space.



On another note it's nice to see that the Ivy House has reopened with the support of the local community. Perhaps that is what the Honor Oak needs - but I never felt there was much in the way of a strong set of regulars there.
