|My first visit to the re-opened Ivy House last night and I was blown away with the selection of ales on offer.|
Truman's Runner, Brockley Brewery Pale Ale, Clarence & Fredericks Golden Ale, Late Knights ’By the Dawns Early Light, Dark Star Hophead, Five Points Pale, Brockley Brewery Gold and Rosie Pig Cider all on hand pull along with 3x Meantime, Pilsner Lager, London Pale Ale and Pacific Pale Ale, Camden Wit, London Fields Brewery Ale and Beavertown, Gamma Ray also on tap.
One slight criticism is that out of the group of 6 of us, there were 3 not so great pints pulled. Each pint was returned & changed by the bar staff with no fuss. I am sure the beer quality will improve.
As previously mentioned this pub is now locally owned by customers and supporters of the pub.
Even at 6pm the place has a nice atmosphere, the bar staff are courteous and attentive.
Old fashioned full wooden interior with mixed table and chairs, giving a nice urban feel to.
Stage for music in the back room and a dj stand.
This visit could signal the first of many.

|The Ivy House is now open again, and a marvelous contribution to London's Pub Scene it is. There's a huge range of beers including 6-8 cask ales, craft keg stuff and all sorts in bottles, with a helpful printed guide to assist you in your choice. The amazing interior is completely unchanged from when it was last open, if an awful lot cleaner, and it is just begging to get back on its feet as a venue - if the improvements visible in other departments are evident here as well, the Ivy House will soon establish itself as an essential place to visit. There's plenty of further improvements to be made, but the management's commitment to this is clear, and the pub's future is very bright.|

The Ivy House - closing down this Sunday (22/04/12)
Posted by NickTheSnick Today, 11:07AM
Yes, the rumours are true.
This Sunday (April 22nd) will be our last day of trading.
The gorgeous, lovely people at Enterprise Inns have finally managed to sell The Ivy House and are kicking us out in a stylish and classy last-minute way. On Monday one of South London's most iconic venues will be boarded up.
As far as we know it's been sold to developers and will never re-open as a pub again.
We're obviously gutted, after just 10 months we were really starting to turn this place into a popular and lively pub and venue. Lots of great stuff was already booked in for the next few months, all now sadly cancelled. (If you did have a gig or party booked I have tried to contact you already this morning)
Our final 5 days:
Wed - Hankdog's Easycome Acoustic Club
Thurs - Silent Film Night - Nosferatu (1922), with live accompaniment from musical genius Igor Outkine
Fri - Private party in the ballroom, front bar open as usual
Sat - Comedy Club - Scott Capurro, Steve Best and more
Sun - Big fat leaving party
Massive thanks and love to all the people who've supported us in our time here, we've had some amazing nights and met lots of lovely new friends.
I hope you'll be able to join us for a goodbye drink before the end of the week, we plan on going out with a bang rather than a whimper - watch this space for details of our 'closing down/drink the bar dry/so what if it's a school night' party on Sunday.
For those of you who'll miss the pizzas the most, get yourselves down to The Joiners Arms in Camberwell - same recipe, same chefs, same awesomeness.
Nick and the whole Ivy House team.
PS - Anyone looking for brilliant bar managers, bar staff, chefs or cleaners please get in touch with me - there's a whole team of skilled, charming and beautiful people looking for new jobs now.
