Return of the Ivy House

Good news on the pub front - The Ivy House at the top of Peckham Rye (40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, SE15 3BE) is set to re-open this month.

I've mentioned before this place's importance as both a pub and a music venue, both as the Ivy House and in its earlier incarnation as the Newlands Tavern. I will do a proper history post on it soon, but for now will simply note that John Bundy and friends, who successfully relaunched The Joiners Arms in Camberwell, are behind the latest episode in this pub's story. Lots of events are already being planned for later in the year.

The official opening night is on 22 June, with lots of music, but there's also some gigs and stuff happening in the week before. Full details here.
