Last night Brixton Buzz went along to the launch of the new Mere Scribbler pub opposite Streatham Common and enjoyed some south London hospitality and a few beers.
As we reported last month, the venue is located on the former site of the Bank pub, and is looking to tempt in locals with a full menu of hot food and snacks, draught beers, wines and and cocktails.
The Mere Scribbler is the latest local boozer from the growing Livelyhood chain, who currently run three other south London watering holes – the Clapham North, The Regent in Balham and The Old Frizzle of Wimbledon.
Our first thoughts were – to paraphrase Radiohead – that everything was in its right place for a modern revamped pub.
There was bare brick walls, exposed wooden floors, trendy lights, comfy sofas and all the usual elements you’d expect from a new pub in 2017, along with a food menu aimed at a more upmarket clientele (i.e. not cheap).
There was also loads of TVs on the walls for sport, so this could be a good place to watch the big sporting events.
Here’s some photos from the launch last night:
