The Southampton Arms has reopened as a dedicated ale and cider house. As mentioned below most of the old furniture has been stripped out opening up the pub into a more spacious and accommodating one, having retained the original woodpanelling, fireplace, piano, mirrors and tiled wall behind the bar. Tungsten lighting keeps it traditional. Enough rambling about what it looks like, their adventurous beer policy is enough to drive even the least curious drinker in to have a look. Twelve handpumps serve up to 8 ales at any time with the remaining four given to ciders and perries. One or two extra ciders were noted behind the bar. Two German lagers are also available on draught. Beers and ciders mainly from small to micro breweries: Sambrooks Wandle and Dark Star Espresso both on very good form. Food is limited (and I know some of you will like this) to pork pies, scotch eggs, nuts and crisps as the pub has no kitchen and little intention of installing one. Friendly, enthusiastic young staff behind the bar. Whilst there I noted the majority of people inside were drinking real ale, and as standard the beers were served in jugs unless you asked for a straight glass. And for music, donít think Spotify, iPod or CDs - think VINYL! The reopening of this pub as an alehouse, welcoming to everyone, is excellent news for the Gospel Oak area where good real ale pubs are fairly few and far between. I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit and wish the pub every success. NOTE the telephone number does not receive incoming calls; as soon as I have obtained a new number I will update RB.
