    Also out of area - but in quite poor taste IMHO. Is this hipster irony? I'm sure there's scope for replication in Brixton (or Camberwell Green, if the churches don't have the freehold of that ex-Job Centre)
    "The Job Centre" (Deptford High Street)

    What I find odd is that their website http://jobcentredeptford.com/ (not currently available - has exceeded it's bandwidth!!) refers to the "Antic Collective", which makes it sound like some sort of non-profit making charity.

    This is misleading marketing IMHO.

    Despite the touchy-feely niceness of the laughably misleading 'collective' description, it's still better to have a pub, that to not to have a pub.
    Even a pub in an old job centre run by a company with a reputation for financial eyebrow raising.

    It's a nice enough bar with Old Rosie on tap, so I've been a few times. Really nice bar staff. I like it but the Bird's Nest is better.

    What are the prices? They look as though they major on ale. Presumably more Craft Beer prices than Wetherspoons.

    £3.80 for a pint of cider.

    A friend of mine turned up late in the pub on Monday after drinking copious amounts of Old Rosie at the Effra Social. He was in a fine state :)

    I had most unusual (and good) seafood, asparagus, samphire, Cornish cheese puffs and Hackney American beer breakfast in The Job Centre the weekend before last. While I am admittedly verging towards hipsterism sometimes these days, the name did still feel slightly wrong though.

    I feel the desire to take a big 'jobbie' right in the centre of the place whilst pleading with the bouncers I was only doing what it said on the tin. That should work.

    They're applying again to have a roof terrace at the Dogstar.

    I like The Job Centre, and don't see what all the fuss is about. It's no different from naming a pub after an old dairy, old post office or old dispensary. And it has a vacancies board that anyone can put jobs on, so it probably helps more people now than it did in its old incarnation.

    I frankly doubt that very much.

    I last signed on in 2012.

    If I was unemployed and my local Job Centre closed down, I would be pissed off with the people who closed it, not the people who turned it into a pub.
