Hi all,
Which pubs/bars are open serving drinks near the Rye?
Meeting some friends tonight for the first time and would love a nice cold drink while enjoying the sun from my camping chair...
Thanks

I think the cafť on the corner of the gardens was serving some sort of beer/booze last weekend - cafť G I know that the Great Exhibition is doing a 'pint thru' though that is not very near the park! The Herne isn't open which is at the top of the park...

I think The Herne is offering a takeaway beer menu (2 pints minimum) between 5pm and 8pm Thurs-Sat.

Brockley Brewery does home delivery fresh beer in 2 & 4 pints at good prices, plus cans, bottles, mini kegs

The Ivy House, Stuart Road.

Two minute walk from the Rye (top end).

Not sure whether you have to order in advance or can just turn up - I think the latter now, but best phone to find out!

If during the day, the Rye cafe and Cafe G (and sometimes The Herne) sell beer to takeaway.

But TBH I don't understand why you wouldn't just go to Tesco.

Tesco don't sell draught and keg beer, or at least they hadn't changed into a pub last time I was in there big grin

Pubs/Clubs should not be serving alcohol anywhere near the 4th July so this against all Government guidelines.

messageRe: Pubs serving beers
Posted by Cyclemonkey June 27, 08:34AM

Not true pubs, bars and off licences have always been allowed to sell alcohol to takeaway. What is not allowed until July 4 is drinking it on the premises.

Now i'll grant you in recent days I think some places have been pushing that a bit by allowing customers to congregate outside.

You must REALLY notice the difference between bottled/canned vs draft beer, if you're inclined to pay 2-3 times the price!

There is a huge difference. Like saying why pay chips from the chippie when you can buy oven chips and make the at home.

Well yes, there is a massive difference!

Plus there is the knowledge/feeling that having pubs survive might be a good thing, and thatís less likely to happen if we donít spend any money there

messageRe: Pubs serving beers

The Pub is a Very British thing.. well it was...

Pubs are closing down at a rate of one every 12 hours, new figures show.

The Campaign for Real Ale say that 378 pubs shut down permanently between July and December last year in England, Scotland and Wales, representing more than 14 closures a week.
24 Feb 2019

Covid 19 really is the final nail in the coffin.

Most people I have spoken to say they would not be happy to go to the Pub if they open on the 4th July.
It is not going to be the same 'Social' night out we were once used to.

People have got used to Supermarket prices of Beer, Wine and Spirits.

Based on 3 pints per day at £4.40 per pint. after 104 days of lock down I have potentially saved £1372.80
That does not account for the occasional Shot at £4.00 + a time.

I think it is very likely Pub Prices Could rise significantly. Food sales are likely to decline.

Eating out in our favourite local Restaurants will be a Very different experience.
Having to book in advance and not be able to make a snap decision when a few mates happen to fancy a Ruby..

It's grim..

Yes - Saving a few hundred a month - but jobs much less secure if you work so no big splurge in spending by those benefiting (although I see many have invested in things that keep exercise/leisure/work going at home)

The Lordship, on Lordship Lane, was open recently, if that's not too far a walk.

Thanks for info re Herne Tavern, I'll try that later this week

The White Horse in Peckham was serving last weekend too!

Most of them opening on 4th - but if you want a taste of how it'll work look at the old nuns head rules

By the way - as I guessed would happen- a quick look tells me there will be no provision for those who are alone.


My lockdown continues for a month or so.

Perhaps Weatherspoon Pubs will continue as usual to cater for the local sole drinker.

I understand if there's a limited number of tables then pubs will want to fill them with family/'bubble' groups.

I do tend to be a solo visitor to pubs though - maybe I'll have to be a guest of Tim Martin smiling smiley

Cask ale is very different, I'd agree. Guiness/stout from a nitro tap is very different, too.

Lager and craft keg beer - not so much. In fact I'd say canned craft beer can be better. Probably fresher, and definitely more consistent.

Support the pubs, though. That would be a fine reason to get a takeaway beer.

We pay more in pubs for the atmosphere too.

Nothing like finishing work and enjoying a pint at the bar

Living alone I like a bit of company sometimes - not always (so not looking for a partner) - but when I feel like it smiling smiley

Pubs normally have a better location/space than my flat too. I've survived better than I'd have thought staying n though.

Actually I agree, I haven't really missed pubs either (except for live music).

And I've discovered that some low alcohol beer is actually rather good (thank you Tesco!) so that was a health bonus 😂

Some still as dire as I remember, though ....

Just got reminded the Furlough rules change from tomorrow - so pubs or any other business registered for furlough can employ someone 3 days a week and use furlough 2 days a week (or any other combination of days).
