One of the best in Streatham. Certainly not a "fantastic pub" as others have said, but if you fancy a couple in a warm, decent boozer, you can't go far wrong.

James445, a good music pub is very rare, even in a city of 8 million! People come from miles around to this venue. Do you moan about the constant traffic on Streatham High Road? It makes loads of noise, too. A large % of which is unnecessary car journeys of people who could use other transport. That's as voluntary from them as the noise chosen to be made by the venue's music (which objectively sounds better, too). Why not moan at the drivers? They're a much more pervasive target than one of the only open-minded music venues in the whole of South London!
Oh, it it because someone indoctrinated you that one thing that annoys you is OK to target because it's some 'hippy musicians' or whatever, but that people HAVE TO drive (even for vanity and fun on one of the heaviest-used roads in the capital)? That's bollocks mate, be fair. If this venue is exceptionally inconsiderate, then they deserve criticism, but compared to traffic and other noise pollution, it brings more pleasure to people than yet another moaning resident who's happy to pay too much to his landlord to live too close to a known music venue, work too hard for his pay and then pick on the only targets he can get away with complaining to - rather than the real stresses in his life. I'm assuming all that here, for the purposes of argument. You're not alone though (there'd be a lot less fights on Friday nights if people could get directly angry with those who cause them stress rather than displace their anger).
It would be better if the idiot planning department in the council didn't allow building so close together, but they can likely be bought by developers backhanders, whilst slowly making the concrete jungle ever more dense and life worse for everyone in it. Target them and you'll have a quieter life - stop picking on the organisation doing something special.

There is never a dull moment in this pub... one of my favorites. Friendly, interesting people with stories to tell. Live music for charity, and relaxed atmosphere!

A refreshingly different pub. Easily the best in the area!

The change of the place is amazing hated it before it was full of drunks and rude people..... all the staff smile and dance it is so fresh to see.

james445 have you ever actually been in the place ???? doesn't sound like it!! : )

Fantastic pub! Friendly staff, friendly regulars, there's always good music going on and they're doing a brilliant job trying to create something for the community. All the bands that play do it for free and they do loads of fundraising stuff.
I think it's a brilliant idea - you can drink, listen to music, and know it's for a good cause.
Workshop space out the back sounds like it'll be really good and they're planning eco gardens on the roof and a radio station!
