Places to drink

I thought I'd compile a small list of local pubs and bars, in case people are looking for places to go for a drink on or around Bellenden Road.

Victoria Inn
79 Choumert Rd (Corner of Bellenden Rd)
Open about a year so far, part of a local chain of pubs.  Good selection of drink, food, beer etc. - Allows dogs and has a children's playroom. Also has highchairs and baby changing. Has rooms above that people can stay in.

It used to be a pub called the Wishing Well when I first moved here - which was a standard (quite rubbish) british pub.

The Montpellier
43 Choumert Rd (just along from the Victoria)
Does food, wine, beer etc. Dogs allowed, and children.  Independent pub. According to their website:
"As well as providing good food & drink 7 days a week The Montpelier serves as a creative platform for the creative arts in Peckham, with exhibitions on a regular rotation and evenings of music and performance."
Also has a back room cinema, which seats 30 and has regular screenings - you can follow the back room cinema on twitter to find out what is on.

Again - this is a pub that has changed hands a few time since I moved here, and has been hugely improved.

Prince Albert
111, Bellenden Road
I don't know much about this one, I don't think they do food, it's just a place to drink - has a pool table and a small outside area.

Bar Story
213 Blenheim Grove
This is basically right on the way to Peckham Rye station, under the arches. It's a bar with an outside bit at the front. It looks quite cool, and is quite nice for a drink, although I'm clearly too old... I have had food there once, ages ago - wouldn't recommend it for food, but maybe it's improved? Think they do allow dogs in here.

Ivanhoe Road
Really large selection of beer! I like it actually - but they don't do food. They do have a quiz tho.

The Gowlett
Amott/ Gowlett Roads
Does really nice pizza, which you can takeaway or have there. Allows dogs and children.

That's it for now - any further suggestions for things to add?
