There was just the one real ale on - Doom Bar (yawn) at £2.10 a half. No sign of food on Wednesday evening.
This pub would have been dead had it not been for the participants of the pub crawl I was on, with only two other punters in. There are just a handful of normal tables and chairs, with a small garden/smoking are to the left of the pub. It was very gloomy in there, and the atmosphere was not really improved by the glitterball flickering away. There were a few odds and ends around the place - old sewing machines, radios, and the like - but nothing of any great interest. There's a DJ booth on the left so I guess music must be important here, and I suppose it must get busier when a DJ is here doing their thing. But as a pub I thought this one was very basic, and not the sort of place to which I'm likely to return.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Amersham Arms
Perhaps most prominent when viewed after dark from the platforms of New Cross station when the old red neon 'TAKE COURAGE' illuminated sign really stands out. The pub itself is now probably best known as a music venue, although the stripped-out bar still retains some dark wood panelling. As you would expect, there is little in the way of furniture to clutter the place up, and a band could be heard warming up in the main venue space further back when I stopped by. Two handpumps on the counter, offering Deuchar's IPA and a decent pint of Harvey's (£3.90).
