Brockley Central Drinks Presents: The Talbot

It's kinda like a speakeasy kind of thing. It's kinda cool. It's like you're in on some kind of secret. You tell a chick you've been some place, it's like bragging that you know how to find it. The only way you could know where a place is is if someone who knows brought you there. You have to have someone come before. There is a direct line connecting you back to the original, unequivocally cool, club patrons. It's kinda like Judaism...

7pm onwards
The Talbot, Tyrwhitt Road

We've never dared to try and organise a Brockley Central drinks night on a Friday before, because we're all supposed to have better things to do with ourselves. But then, we've never had the carrot of a sneak preview of the newly-refurbish, long-awaited, heavily-trailed Talbot to offer you before.

Brockley Central veterans may remember the last time we took you to The Talbot, back in May 2008, for a hint of what we hoped was to come. It was an intimate affair, for those people who wanted to learn how a dilapidated but beautiful pub might be restored.

Those plans unfortunately never materialised and for a while it looked like the naysayers would be proven right. But then, this summer, Felix swooped in and achieved what no-one else has managed - delivering a new-look pub in an extraordinarily short amount of time, despite one or two setbacks along the way.

Now, true to his word, he's ready to open next week and to let Brockley Central readers to put him to the test.

BC readers are cordially invited to join Felix on the evening of the 27th, the night before the pub formally opens (bookings for lunch from the 28th!). He writes:

I would like to extend a special invitation to all Brockley Central readers and would like to welcome everyone from 7pm.

There will be some delicious canapes 'on the house' and a paying bar.
I really hope that everybody likes and enjoys the new place.

See you there.

Kind regards

It would be great to see as many of you there as possible and see if we can get close to the numbers we saw at the Ladywell Tavern for Brockley Central's Brockley Max night during the summer.

Even if it is a Friday.
