I came here once before with friends for a cabaret evening in the late 1990s. The main act consisted of an octogenarian male singing a dire rendition of the Woody Woodpecker Show theme! A bizarre evening for sure...
The pub dates back to at least 1826 but was rebuilt in 1936. It's quite large inside with a downstairs music venue and DJ paraphernalia in the ground floor bar. There's a slightly raised area with peripheral, upholstered banquette to the right side of the wood panelled room. The long bar is to the left with a quite attractive stained glass-fronted pot shelf. The floor is rough bare boarded, walls above the panelling are black and there's a white coffered ceiling with dentils. Lighting comprises some fairly standard modern hanging glass shades with illumination to the rear provided by a huge and distracting neon 'burger' sign. To the rear is another room, small and similarly panelled; furniture is wooden and basic. There's no obvious signs of décor apart from flyers advertising upcoming music events. Music played at an unobtrusive level but presumably this was so that it wouldn't clash with the football commentary coming from the TV to the rear room and projector screen in the main bar. As you'd expect in a live music/dive bar, the lavs are a bit scruffy. There were hardly any customers in here, but they were a mixed bunch.
It's card-only payment in here and on our visit, fizz-only as apart from the two unused pumps, all four of the others had clips reversed; my half of Camden's Pale came in at a wincing £2.90.
This isn't a great place by any stretch of the imagination and I imagine that it's predominantly geared towards the young, so don't envisage a return visit.

A decent pub which was very busy on a Saturday evening giving the place a very good atmosphere on my visit,my beer of choice was Mondo Rider Pale Ale which was spot on.A pub well worthy of inclusion on a pub crawl,not open till 5.00pm though,a little odd on a Saturday.

There were three ales on in here - Brick Brewery Peckham Coal Line Porter; Truman's Bold as Brass; and East London Brewery Gold (£2 a half), plus a couple of ciders and a perry on handpump. I expected this place to be a bit more gastro for some reason, but the sight of basic condiments (ketchup, mustard, etc) on the tables soon dispelled that idea. They obviously do food, but I didn't see a menu.

It's a surprisingly large pub, as the main room goes back a long way, and with another room opened up beyond the servery. The are just a couple of tall tables/tall stools near the door, but the vast majority of furnishings are banquettes and normal tables and chairs. On the heritage front, it still has its green banded glazing in the windows, suggesting that it was hitherto a Charrington pub. There is also some nice wood panelling on the walls. A few picnic benches can be found outside in the alleyway running along the side of the pub.

It was desperately quiet when I was in at Sunday lunchtime, with just me, one other punter, and the two barmaids in there to watch the rugby on the large pull down screen. This pub has a bit of a 70s feel to it, with a new(ish) bar counter and a 70s style bar gantry. But helpfully they did have a board on the side wall detailing the beers available - including bottled beers - with ABVs and prices listed. But I just looked at the pumpclips, as usual.

I didn't find this one to be anything special, but it's OK and comfortable enough to warrant a visit if in the area.
