has anyone been to The Duke before?

Never been in there - it looks a bit Greenwichy - it's in that bit of Deptford with the redeveloped wharves with tiny yuppyboxes built on them.
There is a new pub opening soon in the old job centre on the high street, called imaginatively, The Job Centre. Six weeks til opening, I hear.
And has anyone checked out the reopened Montagu Arms yet?

that night looks good though, and a look at their website shows lots of live music going on - Greenwichy or not a music pub is worth supporting/trying out...

Job Centre eh....sounds like an Antic thing...

Anyone been to Little Nan's? It seems to be run by cunts

I thought it was a bit dodgy as there is a stencil of a Young Conservative torch outside and their cocktails appear to be royalist. Eeeeuuuuccch. Let's run them out of town.
the conservative torch has been there for at least 20 years as it used to be a tory club, but even in the 90s it was some kind of dive bar... i thought this place was called The bunker these days though? i was due to go to a night there next month and its say Bunker on the flyer http://www.wherevent.com/detail/Matthew-Turner-Beautifully-Crafted-The-Bunker

Can anyone recommend a decent pub in Deptford for watching football in?

I work in Deptford some evenings, and often finish in time to catch the end of a match before heading home. The Black Horse shows games but is not a great pub.

Aye like, so it is.
Do you have to wait for half an hour on an uncomfortable plastic chair and then fill in lots of forms before they will consider serving you? Prove you've tried ordering drinks at other bars that week before you can get a beer?

"...an eclectic mix of vintage décor and quirky design features inspired by its function as a place that once served the unemployed"

I'm a bit bored by the whole Antic quirky retro schtick now. The Sun and The Tiger in Camberwell, the Ravensbourne and CCC in Catford, the Effra in Brixton...they're a bit samey. I haven't been to the Royal Albert in New Cross but I can imagine.

Yeah, I hate that place. You can't even hear yourself think!
Best pub in Deptford/New Cross is Bird's Nest by far.
Dog & Bell seems alright, esp quiz night with Les off of Vic & Bob. Too far away to regularly visit though.

The Job Centre was alright actually. It was unfinished and grubby, but that's Antic's Free The Paedos schtick, isn't it?
Lots of beers. Only Symonds cider on tap. :(
I even drank a beer for research purposes - a Thornbridge IPA called Jaipur.
I think it will be a decent boozer if they don't exclude the local winos. It was very welcoming to all last night though. A free shot of rum for everyone. Though why they told us it was to commemorate D-Day is a mystery.
