Introducing The Malt and Hops

Lewisham Way pub Albertines, which has been closed for a short time, is reopening tomorrow as The Malt and Hops.

BCer Fong, who kindly sent us the news, adds that it doesn't appear to have been significantly refurbished during its closure, so we're not sure how significant the rebrand is. We'll know tomorrow.

If they were going to revert to a previous name - why not the original name of the pub, The Clarendon?

the night we moved to brockley (bout twelve years ago), we decided to pop to our local. decided against the talbot - it looked scary - so went for the M&H. walked in, decided very quickly it was going to be a half. two chaps sauntered in, one started having a go at the barmaid, the other one pulled out a hammer and a massive screwdriver and started going at the fruity despite the barmaid pointing out that he was on cctv. walked out with teh cash drawer from said fruity. we've never been back. hope it'll be better now.

Yeah that place always seems it could be in a good spot for something good, nice big Victorian building, very prominent, not far from Brockley station... I went in once, years ago but it was pretty nasty... Hopefully it'll turn out better this time round

BTW is your name Michael and are you trying to write in Japanese romaji? If so it should be "maikeru-san"...

You mean New Cross station?

Or St Johns station?

Pretty much in the middle of all of them isn't it?

My only experience of The Albertine was when I first moved to Brockley last year. One pint drunk very quickly due to shabbiness of the place and cold atmosphere.

I thought a change would do it good. Alas, I have just walked past and carried on walking. The only change seems to be that the name has been taken down. I think I'll stick to the extra exercise and continue with The New Cross House.
