Went here on a wet and miserable Sunday. Place was empty due to a local street party outside but the staff were really friendly and the beer was great. We stayed for a few hours of drinking, and the pub filled out with locals. We left when we kept being bothered about "staying for the show" and "did we still need our seats?". There was a free comedy show on, and it was taking over the entire pub - now I wouldn't mind normally but it was blocking all access to the loos, and most of the pub, and most people coming in for the comedians were not drinking - just sitting down to watch. A table of 3 older chaps who'd had a few pints were asked to move to allow access to the 'show area' and we decided to pop down to the nearby Victoria Inn instead. Lovely pub, great staff but really does need to decided if it's a pub or a venue.
Would've been a four if it hadn't have been for the whole comedy shenanigans.
There are very few pubs I go to - even ones I like a lot - where I come away thinking "I wish that was my local". But that's what I was thinking walking away from Hoopers. Made the journey down from SW1 and so glad I did. Nice decor for a start. Only 3 beers on, but that was understandable after a busy weekend. Crucially, the ales that were on were all in nice condition and served well. Had a long chat with the landlord too about things beer-related. All i all a very friendly place I'd heartily recommend to anyone, especially with a beer festival to come in early April. Well worth making a detour to visit.
Probably the best local boozer in south London - and i've been in a few. Really friendly staff, great music nights and quiz, live sports and most importantly; excellent guest ales.
If I could come here every evening i would, but i'd be obscenely overweight and have serious alcohol related problems. Having said that it might just be worth it.
Went to see live jazz from these guys - Brandon Allen, Kit Downes, Alan Gibson, Enzo Zirilli - oh and please get a name for your band!
Anyway, was pleasantly surprised by the pub - it was beer festival when we went, so they had 10 guest ales on tap. Also a great selection of lowlands beers [bottled] on the menu.
Only thing that held it back was the walk from Peckham Rye Station to the pub. Calls from the locals “Hello white boy.” Ho ho ho.
Planned to visit a couple of other pubs in the area but ended up just staying here. They were having a Winter Ale special and so there were some very interesting drinks to be had, including Voortrekker, a lager quite unlike any other I’ve had. Only had chance to try these specials but the amazing beer list means I will definately be back! They do serve Stella…but that must be ironic or something.
The food was good too and although it was very quiet it started picking up later in the evening. They have a screen for the football in one section of the pub (so you can watch it or easily avoid it, whichever your preference). The bar staff were really friendly too. Full marks.
