One of my recent joys is that Amersham Arms is a destination again. Friendly boozer with a fair range of tap n bottles, plus some cracking live entertainment most evenings. Its neither too old or too hipster, and in the last year its got new management and been the place to catch happening/low key specials - live music, film, art and comedy (like Russell Howard for a fiver last month!). The staff are friendly (and the bar has chef made meals – bring on the pulled pork!).

A few months ago I experienced an amazing visual exhibition come record launch event in the upstairs Take Courage gallery where Artrocker did DieselFM shows, and more recently saw bands that are now in the national music press, (for less than their next tour will cost!) on the back room stage.

I used to like coming here in the legendary days of The Catapult Club, Gluerooms etc in the back room then the pub went all Camden Lock for a bit after the “scene”.

Anyway, now its a great place to have a drink (Red Stripe on tap, included!) AND go out. I'm back. So are some familiar faces.

Whats not to love? An affordable night out across the road from a tube station and with a bus stop outside. I'm a music fan so really pleased to have a proper venue and stage, for South East London, getting popular again.

The musicians (and I spotted some industry scouts a few times), students and regulars (a mixture of ages and cultures) are dancing together at the end of the night/early morning. Thats what its all about for me.

I've been here three times (although never at the weekend), each time going in expecting a grumpy hipster nightmare but ending up having a decent night. Inside it's a pretty standard scruffy London live music bar; badly lit with low couches and dirty tables. Booze-wise there is the usual keg crap with a few bottles and two ales around the side. The beer seems to lack condition but is drinkable. The girls serving looked about 15 but were on the ball and friendly enough.

At the back is a room the same size as the main bar, perfect for music or whatever. If you find this place too pretentious wander down the road towards Deptford and pop in The Little Crown for some old-school-rank-pub action!

Neither cask ale was particularly appetising last time I went here, but they do make up for it with their tasty Sunday roasts of epic proportions, and cocktails.

The special deal on cocktails is good - 2 the same for 7 if I remember correctly (and after a few of those, you probably won't).

Tried to watch some comedy here but it was too popular and I got turned away! Nevermind, had some drinkies at the bar instead. Nice cocktails. I plan to try the food at some point. Trendy clientele due to proximity to Goldsmiths a drawback.

This pub has a Gallery, I was in this week with some friends and found ourselves in Amershams "take courage" Gallery. Some poetry was being read out and the place was really buzzing, this was early in the week too and in the back bar area live music was being played, wasn't very busy but nice to have a bit of variety. The front bar looked amazing, some guys were playing the piano in the corner of the bar, chuck berry, Jerry Lee Lewis....awsome, we stayed in there most the night drinking cheap cocktails and singing along.
Found a small Garden space as we were leaving, didn't know it was there, had a quick peak in and it also looking really good with bunting, multi coloured light bulbs and funky plastic plants. Great night, cool pub.
