Predictably for a dish with such proud British lineage, there is some debate over the history of pie and mash, where it began and with whom, but it is well known that M. Manze...
Welcome to South London, new students of 2017! Now you’ve packed up your room at home, learnt how to navigate the tubes (sort of) and are getting ready to start your first lectures, it’s time to familiarise yourself with the local area. If you feel like London is a bit of an enigma, allow us to help you out. This list will help you find hidden gems that will become as much a part of your University experience as jagerbombs and all-nighter library sessions. Expect bars, hangover breakfasts and takeaways that might help you feel more grounded in the big city, and save some money with a South London Club card.

We’ve talked already about some beer gardens in Southwark borough, and we went through what could be a beer garden, now it’s the turn of Lewisham borough. So, without further ado, here is South London Club’s list of 6 beer gardens in Lewisham borough you have to try this summer.
Lewisham might not be the first place Londoners would consider for quality live music but the borough that Kate Bush grew up in and where Blur famously formed at Goldsmiths University of London, is a haven for fine talent as well as home to venues that artists from across the rest of the country, and world, have played in.
