After a short absence, we are pleased to announce the return of Wandle Ale, brewed by the Sambrook's Brewery down in Battersea.

Then for the next few weeks, whilst we're getting things sorted at the pub, Sambrook's, Redemption and St Austell's will be on rotation.

But rest assured that once things are sorted, there will be four hand-pumps on the bar! - watch the website for the details

We're thinking that we''ll have the above beers as permanent fixtures, leaving the fourth pump free as a guest ale - featuring award winners, new releases and recommendations from you guys!

Speciality beer and our range of bottled beers is available online too..

Blimey...... quiz time in archway's a mahoussive one next week - a quiz wot covers the whole wide world.

A little over-ambitious you may say, but I reckons we can can pull it off (if we can do a practical quiz on the 5 senses, we can do anything!)

For all you geography-phobes out there - DON'T PANIC! It won't all be about tectonic plates and human densities....

There's going to be seven rounds - all based upon the seven continents -

North America / South America /Antarctica / Africa / Europe / Asia / Australia

and within that it'll be culture, history, commerce - you name it, it'll be covered!

Start time will be the usual 9.30pm, but now that Chris's arm is mended and the kitchen is reopen, why not come early and have some grub?

PS - don't forget peeps, you'll be playing to win the world! That should appeal to the latent supreme ruler in you all....

Quiz time is here again.....

....and it's all about the colours of the rainbow.

Not a soppy quiz about rainbows n' kittens n' sparkly soft girlie rubbish!

I may throw in a question or two about the kids TV show, but maybe I won't.... know me and my question tangents - a question on that would be far too obvious!

Kick off is usual time of 9.30. Unfortunately Sky still hasn't been resurrected (tho who really cares about Man Utd?) but we're gonna stick to usual start time so as not to confuse.

See you at the bar for fun n' larks!

Since Spring seems to be taking it's own sweet time to arrive properly - as in not being so bloody cold - thought it might be nice to inject a bit of warm into things by making a quiz all about the seaside.....

....halcyon days on the beach, candy floss, warm sand between your toes.....

We'll have palm trees, inflatables and ice cream cones.

Beach wear is optional!
