Head to Nunhead for the Old Nun's head

Where would you find a pub called The Old Nun's Head? In an area of South London called (wait for it) - Nunhead of course.

And as it turns out, the Old Nun's Head is a place you really should make a pilgrimage to.

First of all, the choice they have on tap is impressive, with the taps representing some fine quality craft beers, as well as guest ales from independent small brewers - expect to see everything from Meantime Yakima Red to Westerham Spirit of Kent, with a range of bottles in the fridges for those who don't feel so comfortable with their knowledge of the pumps.

Once your drink is ordered, then you can start to get down to the business of thinking about food. The Old Nun's Head has this covered too...

They do something that I have to admit, I've never heard of before - but I think it is a genius idea. They hand over their kitchen to a regularly rotating range of street food vendors, meaning that it is possible to make regular return visits, and always have something new to eat- confident in the fact that you are trying something the chefs specialise in. It is possible you could have anything from beefburger sliders to barbecue ribs to adapted Sunday Roasts- so there will always be things to try, whatever the day, time or appetite.

This is more than enough to get you interested I'm sure, but to seal the deal, this nice looking pub also puts on a series of events through the week - with everything from quiz nights to comedy nights, music and films being shown to bring in the locals.

So, everything you want from a local, can be found here, but to top it off, this is a pub with a great atmosphere, largely down to the friendly and attentive staff who work there-a pleasure of a place to visit - you should really see for yourself.
