For an outsider the first impression of New Cross might not be bedazzling, but the area is actually very charming. This lively part of town is home to Goldsmiths College, casual hipsterism and fascinating places like Prangsta Costumiers and Venue. New Cross has a big art and music scene, which naturally goes hand in hand with having a few pints every once in a while, luckily, New Cross is also an area full of lovely pubs and bars which cater to all the different groups that inhabit New Cross – students, locals, families etc. Being kind, generous people at South London Club, we thought it only right to give a list of 5 places to go for a drink in New Cross.
Now the truth is guys, beer gardens did not originate in South London. Nope. They actually first gained popularity over in Munich, Germany, where we hear they quite like a drink – see Oktoberfest (which is actually in September). While some might argue that the whole world is one big beer garden, and they might have something of a point, however, we would suggest that really it has to be connected to a public establishment that sells or makes alcohol (so you’re backgarden doesn’t count). 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.
