This Victorian watering hole has adopted a trendily ramshackle yet comfortable character. Visitors are made to feel as if enjoying a night out in their own living room. A stone’s throw from Goldsmiths University, it effortlessly blends old-school pints with uber cool music and comedy nights: Alt-J, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines, Carl Barat, Bloc Party, Dave Rowntree (Blur/Xfm), Primal Scream, Mystery Jets, Maximo Park, The Cribs, The Coral, and Terry Hall (The Specials) have all been down to spin their favourite tunes.
Happy Mondays are a long-established fortnightly comedy event, where the well-known comics honing their material have included Stewart Lee, Cardinal Burns, Russell Howard, Shappi Khorsandi, Andy Parsons, Andi Osho, Arthur Smith, Sarah Millican, Greg Davies, Milton Jones, Dane J Baptiste, Robin Ince, Sean Walsh, Al Murray.
The Amersham Arms also hosts film and poetry evenings, and offers space for exhibitions.

Great resident DJs do indeed whip it up at this regular New Cross bash, with lashings of cool party anthems 'from AC/DC to MGMT and from Missy to Kissy' alongside cutting-edge beats. Don't miss the cocktails either.Friday October 28 2016 - Friday November 25 2016 FreeRead more

So glad to see this venue become vital again. Goldheart Assembly, Toy, Loom, Russell Howard, Holly Walsh, Bare Pale and just recently a low key show by Jamie N Commons, to name just a few, in the last year alone. Nice mix of students, locals and art crowd so its friendly as well. That will do nicely for me with a long cool pint in the evening. And just a short hop over the road from the East London Line, too. Bonus.
Really awful place. Rude staff, including the manager who treated two of our party disgustingly! There are plenty of nice pubs just around the corner if you're looking for a good night out, this isn't one of them!
The Amersham puts on a terrific variety of music and other events. It's bohemian and unpretentious - always a plus in these gentrified, hipster times
South East London has a really cool live entertainment circuit and this is one of the venues that I keep finding myself in, catching some wicked gigs. Friendly with lots of laughter, too. Does it for me.
The Brockley Ukulele Group play their Ukebox of over 60 songs on the second Sunday of every month from 8pm. I'm definately going next time. They are amazing. I especially love their version of Daft Punk's Harder Better faster Stronger. Best night I've had out in ages!!!
