Come and enjoy some mid carnival mayhem on Sunday night, where our regular quizmaster, Phil Nice, will be hosting an even more chocolate laden than usual fundraising event for Westminster House Youth Club in Nunhead. After the quiz there will be DJs spinning, funk, reggae, soul and more to help you through the bank holiday... There are more details below about what the fundraiser is for. Do come and support Vicky and her band of merry mums!  

On September 14th 4 local mums are undertaking the Thames Path Challenge. A 24hour, 100km endurance walk from Putney to Henley in order to raise money for Westminster House Youth Club which celebrates it's 125th year. WHYC in Nunhead offers fantastic and much needed support and services to the children and young people of the area and we are working hard to keep it up and running in difficult times. Any amount you can give to this youth club will be much appreciated and a very worthwhile investment in young people.

Delighted to have the Melodica Recordings head honcho Chris Coco back for another instalment of chilled Balearica and a whole lot more, this month joined by Haraket's Ojan. Who is far too talented, young and all the rest to talk about here. Sickening. Anyway, this will be good... You should come...

More Stuff About March, With Food & Art Upstairs & Downstairs

2 Dinners 1 Lunch

2 Dinners 1 Lunch, our mutton based foodathon in conjunction with chef Alan Stewart is now sold out for Saturday 9th March. There are a few seats left on Friday night (8th of March if you hadn't worked it out) which you can book online (and read about what on earth I'm on about) here

We also have a few seats for our Sunday sharing feast on the 10th of March. 
It's mother's day. 
Imagine how many brownie points you'd get by bringing her to an exclusive, limited to 30 seats pop up food club in a dressed gallery space above the "best pub for miles"*.

There are a small number available behind the bar, and some left here.

Of course, our celebrated pizzas shall carry on being served throughout this weekend...

American Studies

Jim, Dow, who was born and still lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts USA, is coming for a visit and bringing us a treat. We are very excited to be showing some of his works upstairs after the brief supperclub shenanigans! The private view is on the 15th of March, and we are also trying to squeeze in a special event into Jim's already packed schedule for his visit to the UK. This is one not to miss...

Bring On The Dancing Horses

Parallel Point presents Bring on The Dancing Horses, by Adam Laurence Hedley, on the panelled walls of the downstairs bar from the 8th March.

Yes There's Cold on The Way, But Looky Looky

After a couple of days of sunshine, I almost thought spring was on the way, but this weekend there's more cold stuff coming...

Luckily for you lot, the most wonderful Chris Coco is coming down with a Melodica Recordings crew to bliss you up with some Balearic warmth this Saturday. Full details are here

Then we are rolling into March, the pool table will be relocated to it's summertime position so the grumpy old man won't complain quite so much, and we will be heading into Easter with some of our most exciting events yet...

Friday 1st of March sees our favourite friends, The Eccentrics Disco wheel their Genie-esque boxes of tricks and sounds into The G for the perfect way to start your weekend. Last month's was amazing, even though our special guest Severino hurt his ankle so had to cancel at the last minute.
You can hear the full recordings here

That gives us barely enough time to draw breathe before our new pop up project, 2 Dinners, 1 Lunch takes over the upstairs kitchen and gallery space for a weekend of culinary amazingness. There's 3 sittings and only 30 seats in each. These tickets are hot hot hot, available in person at the bar, or at

As we roll towards Easter, there are more things planned, and especially exciting is the rescheduled visit of our favourite Italian DJ Severino on Maundy Thursday 28/03/2013, as part of an Eccentrics Disco Egg Hunt Bunny Hop special... More details soon.
