|Popped in for a quick beer on the 3rd day they reopened under new management this week.|
I'm impressed. The decor is good quality shabby chic , the flooring is stripped floorboards and the brickwork is exposed. A bit of artwork hangs on the walls and the lighting is atmospheric but not too dark!
4 cask ales on the 4 pumps, just like the previous version of the pub had. These ales were 2 from Sambrook's and 2 from Laine Brewery, I had a pint of Bestist Bitter @ 4.3% from Laine, a decent pint at a cost of £4.30.
A good mix of music played at an acceptable level, the new bar staff fluffed around the punters and put reserved flags out on certain tables no doubt for the diners that were due later.
My first visit was a success and I can see me using this pub regularly, it is after all just a 10 minute walk from my house!

|Currently closed 'for refurbishment' (it says on the door). It's an Asset of the Community and apparently Laine's are taking it over (http://laines.london/2016/06/the-ladywell). It's all been rather quiet since they closed it in the summer, but we remain hopeful our local pub will re-surface to something even better and as a continuing local hub.|

|The wife and I dropped in just before 11pm a couple of Saturday’s back for a night cap knowing it would still be open.|
Several years since I’ve been here for a beer and I have no idea why as I pass it twice a day.
Live music was on when we arrived and it was pretty good. The group were playing a mix of blues, jazz, 60’s and 70’s tunes and the front man was decent. A fair sized crowd still in the pub with everyone a local.
Choice of 3 ales on the hand pumps with 2 being national brands and the 3rd from the local Brockley Brewery. I opted for Timothy Taylor’s Landlord with both pints I had being well poured and kept.
We stayed for an hour listening to the music and chatting while we enjoyed our drinks before succumbing to a burger from the kebab house across the road.
The Ladywell Tavern has always been a decent pub I just have no idea why I don’t use it much.

|Went in today and order a Roast Beef Lunch. The beef was dry and stone cold and very chewy.|
All of the food on the plate was cold apart from the roast potato's which were warm.
Watery, greasy cold gravy. The barman said "oh sorry about that" as he scraped the plates into the bin. Do not bother with this place.Totally dreadful and I will not go back.

|This pub has re-opened now. I have only moved to the area so never went to the old pub. I have been a few times since it re-opened late 2013 and each time it has been better and better. It seems to be getting a good crowd on Friday and Saturday nights. It has a good range of beers inc. ale (maybe a little pricey for the area), open fireplace, live music some nights and food looks good. If your a local and you have not dropped down yet you should get on down and support it!|
