Time Out says

There's plenty of pedigree to this south London boozer – once upon a time it was called the Oxford Arms, and it played host to the likes of Dire Straits and Squeeze. These days, live music still plays an important part. 

That means gigs from Thursday to Sunday every week, plus there are open mic nights every Wednesday. There's variety, too – expect anything from blues, ska and folk to hardcore punk and alt-rock. Probably best to keep an eye on listings, then.

Outside of the music there are monthly art exhibitions at their own 'Undercurrents Gallery', alongside a keenly priced daily food menu featuring dishes such as Thai pumpkin soup, Greek salad, chilli con carne, chickpea and spinach curry and a range of burgers. And if you miss the train home? There's a hostel upstairs.
