I reckon it was a pint, Mawders - I had the same experience when I was there. They have a range of cheaper ales at... 3.20 or so, and then some at 5 quid. Bit steep if you ask me.

Not being an ale drinker, I'd be interested to know exactly what is the going rate for a pint or speciality pint around Se19/Se20? I can remember when a half of bitter was 32p  :o

Spoons will sell you a good ale for less than 2.50 a pint. Normally you'd be looking at a pound more in many places. You can easily spend more too, depending on the venue and drink of choice.

To add to your comment, `Spoons will also sell you a pint of decent ale with a burger and chips for about 5.50.

It might not be the venue of choice for the local Hipster population but by todays standards it`s good value.

Also, charlie must be a young whippersnapper. I remember a pint of bitter for less than 2 shillings!

Oh dear, quick, pass the Zimmer frame.  :wacko:

They do do very good meal deals, but to be honest I rarely go to Spoons to eat.

The new Beer Rebellion place doesn't feel like a step forward. It is cramped and who wants to see people cooking in a pub, even if the extraction systems are very efficient? Give me the old place any day.

They have quite a roomy basement which is quite nice, although a bit Spartan.

 

As others have mentioned they could do with a price list though as the good old days of £3.50 drinks seem to have gone and got stung for a £5 pint in there the other week.

I didn't really take to the cellar either, and I've already moaned about the ground floor....

 

In other news, very much looking forward to the re-opening of the Goldsmith's Arms down in Ponge :). Walked past there today and it seemed to be busy with plenty of people working inside.

Penge should be booze central on Thursday night.  Goldsmiths re-opens and Late Knights are doing the Alexandra Nurseries that night.  Throw in the turning on of the High Street Xmas lights, with bands, and there could be a fair few wobbly legs around later.  Thank God, Thursday is the new Friday.

 

Incidentally Late Knights are opening their Penge brewery as a pub/shop every Saturday (till 7pm) between now and Crimbo Day.  If it's a success the shop will be a regular daily thing... though they are currently on schedule for a February opening of the Alex pub under their stewardship.  And rumours on the Penge Tourist Board last night suggested that a large retail unit on the High Street (the C&V Traing place) is due to become a pub/restaurant in the future.

My word - maybe Penge really IS becoming the new Brixton? Or is that Crystal Palace? Making Penge the new Streatham perhaps.

I see Penge as the new West Norwood.  A few years behind but similarities exist.

Just to say I ended up in a bar/restaurant called Toasted in East Dulwich last week. They had a very good selection of local craft beers including Late Knights. In addition to Wormcatcher by Late Knights I had a bottle of FHHV (Friends of Herne Hill Velodrome) by Canopy Beer Co at Herne Hill - very nice!

The food is very good (though quite pricey) there too. Wine is good value.

Picking up some hop growers' bottles of the Palace Pint from the Late Knights brewery tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

Palace Pint is the only LK beer I don't like.
