Half Moon to reopen 20th March.

See Southwark News:
And what does trump think about Southwark news ?

Seriously that's good news
Tonight!

I hope anyone who goes has a good time and comes back with good reviews. Look forward to hearing about it.
er,...it's February at the moment Mick, February
Hi Mick I'm going...did you not get an invite?!
A month's notice is too much for me to cope with.

I don't tend to get friendly with bar owners. I buy beer, drink it and leave. I don't see them as potential friends.
I wonder if that barred list still stands smiling smiley
A decent refurb but near £25 for rib eye and chips in a Fullers pub?? Not exactly a neighbourhood pub price point and trading near central London / Hawksmoor levels. Hope the Dog doesn't crank everything up a fiver when it reopens....it will though....
Anyone been in yet? If so any word on what are the ale prices and what the quality/range is like?
Yeah...went this evening to eat. Didn't clock specific prices but they've all gone up a notch in line with other places. They've done a very good job of leaving the main front and side bars alone and preserving the feel but lifting it a a bit. The back bit which used to have the stage has been totally "clockhoused" with some faux yacht club clapboarding and vintage lighting. But I'll forgive them that as we used to play chinged up scaffolders at poker in there and it was a total shit hole. It has now been transformed into the main eating space with a named Head Chef called Mike Blizzard which is a f*&*ing brilliant name. The back garden is now all on trend concrete and rattan timber booths. Food was good but just delighted to have it back open and that they've not totally destroyed it.
Ta. Delighted it's open again and not a block of flats...though it was the gigs which really made me make the effort to travel in the past...
Would add that no review counts until Jah Lush, a man whose opinion is respected on such matters, has visited and passed judgement.

Passed what?
I visited last night with Mr L, he had a pint of lunar and I had a half of the stuff. We got there about 9. It was busy enough for all the tables to be taken, but not so busy that it felt uncomfortable. Most of the original features have been kept in the front bar and out back they've created a restaurant area and then through some separate doors to the toilet it opens out into a refurbished garden with another outside bar and some sort of food shack (closed), which is I presume used in summer. Drink prices top end of average (for people like us), friendly enough service and a good mixed crowd. I think it's been smartened up but with a decent nod to the past, maybe not to everyone's taste - especially a die hard regular back in the day (maybe). I'd go back, I like the way the food area is kept away back from where the drinking is done at the front. The bloke who I presume is manager seemed friendly enough too.

Mostly positive then, but I don't know what it is. Pubs nowadays just don't feel the same to me. I reckon this will put the dog refurb to shame.

More than a fiver a pint Louisa? I'm not mean but I am skint quite a lot and I do like to be able to get four pints out of a £20 if possible!
I think it depends what you go for rendel, but yes I reckon most of the premium stuff is well over a fiver. I noticed peroni on tap which I'm not a fan, and there were a few other options. The drinks mix looked classic Fullers to my untrained eye, with a few guest beers. As I say, top end of what id 'like' to pay, but I'd go back. Reckon the garden will be well used in summer, and a nice little front garden too.

Thanks Louisa - I feared as much.
Quite often go in Fullers pubs in the City... ale tends to be around the £4 mark, surely Herne Hill can't be more expensive? Some of the keg beers tend to be expensive though.
I was sure you were on this list Louisa...doesn't the new management know?

Places will charge whatever they can get away with..
If people are prepared to pay over the top prices, then the rest of us have little choice.

I'm happy to pay £3.30 for a pint of reasonable ale (Session) in the EDT
and not have to mess about waiting for a bus.

The Lunar ale was £5.50 a pint, only had the one round. More of a nose than a proper drink. Not sure about the price of other tap beers/lagers, but presumably around a similar sort of mark or maybe slightly less?

I was in disguise last night. Looked like an innocent member of the public enjoying alcoholic beverages in my 'look at me' East Dulwich visitor dress. Even managed some face paint. They didn't suspect a thing winking smiley

Louisa! You were drinking imported US "craft" beer, so probably the most expensive option there. You wannabe hipster!

I'm sure London Pride or ESB would be quite a bit cheaper.

I only had half and wasn't keen, old man loved it. Thought it was a bit steep. Being called a hipster at my age is probably a compliment- I'm happy with that! Presumably then based on the assumption that's the most expensive drink, other beers would be considerably cheaper. That puts the place on a par with most other boozers locally then.

If the Half Moon can get away with £5.00 - £5.50 ..

... How much will the Dog be charging when it opens.. ??

£7.50 ?? You can get a hot dog for that.. smiling smiley
