Rave against riots

This Saturday, the Ravensbourne Arms will host a post-riot celebration of the community, with a BBQ, carnival games and table tennis.

Owners Antic (also behind the excellent Jam Circus and Royal Albert, among many others) have arguably taken on their biggest challenge yet with the Ravensbourne Arms, a big pub on Lewisham High Street. The pub opened in May and has had good reviews but BCers report it's rarely close to full, with word of mouth taking time to spread. Alexandra, who sent us the story, says:

I was really impressed with how much care and love the owners have put into every aspect of the Ravensbourne Arms. The staff were lovely and although I love the Ladywell Tavern, I'm really pleased to have another option in the neighbourhood.
