    A friendly comedy and cabaret circuit favourite, it is also a function and dining room, a film club, the occasional boot sale market and a hub of South East London creatives.

    My local boozer - great to see it brought back to use. Well done guys!

    Will Pull The Other One be returning to its ancestral home here? It would be a real shame if the comedy/cabaret night was lost to Herne Hill.

    I gave the Sunday lunch a try and thought that it was very good - just be warned that there is no card machine installed yet so take cash or cheque.

    I also had Sunday lunch there last weekend and really enjoyed it. They do children's portions for half the price and my four year old ate the lot!! (because she loved it, not because there wasn't enough, cos there was!). Everyone in there was really friendly, it was a nice relaxed atmosphere, and then you can roll down to the park afterwards. Perfect!

    Missed out on Sunday lunch AGAIN! I keep going too late. Turned up (admittedly, partially to escape the rain on my way home) at 5:30 but they'd sold out of roasts an hour before. Next week, next week....

    Ok, I came I saw, I liked....

    After years of useless managers, dodgy regulars and tepid beer, the Ivy House has miraculously come back from the dead and is well worth a visit I'd say.

    Over the past week or so I've had some of the tastiest real ale it's been my pleasure to sink, namely Castle Rock's Harvest Pale and St Austell Tribute, and the aforementioned Sunday roasts aren't half bad either, if you don't get there too late (ie after 4pm).

    Nick, the new manager, has persuaded the Easy Come acoustic open mic night thing to return on Wednesday nights, and by all accounts it's going great guns. Anyway, I'd urge anyone reading this to get down there sometime and give Nick the support he deserves for all his hard work turning this place around.

    Yummy Sunday lunches!

    Went back again last Sunday and had the pork and stuffing - very tasty and great value.

    My only complaint is there were only six people in there, and that included the barman!

    Come on SE15ers, support your Ivy!
