Old Nun's Head Review

Top 10 things to know about The Old Nun's Head pub:

1) Want to be a Hollywood star? You need to hang out in all the right places. The Old Nun's Head at Nunhead Green is a great place to start. The owners do call their establishment "the Ryan Gosling of Pubs".

2) The site was previously a nunnery during the reformation and the scene of a horror that film studios should be clamouring to adapt. The mother superior faced with expulsion by King Henry VIII refused so vehemently that she was murdered and her head topped a pikestaff on the green.

3) It might look like a typical boozer, but there's more action here than on a big budget film set. Live music performances, quiz nights and guest appearances from top street food entrepreneurs are standard.

4) The man to impress and pass your auditions is Ollie, aka King of the Mods. Affable and welcoming, he is the man bringing the talent to the kitchen and the music to the dance floor.

5) If you stumble across their Tem Ban Thai night, Ollie will insist you try the deep-fried shredded pig's ears. It’s similar to pork scratchings but with a more intense, meatier taste. You’ll be all ears for advice after eating a bowl of this.

6) Bringing some fire to your belly is their Chang Mai curry of pork belly with ginger and peanuts. Filled with intense flavours from the spices, this is the genuine real deal and not the pale westernised copycat you get at other places.

7) If you’re a character actor, then maybe visit on one of their Burger Bear nights? Depending on your taste, you can be a grizzly bear, greedy bear or just an angry bear.

8) They’re fervent supporters of local talent. Their friends, Belleville Brewing at Wandsworth, have come up with Snout Stout, which they plan to offer. Bacon beer anyone?

9) Quiz nights are a box office hit for the Old Nun's Head, so booking a table early is essential. In addition, you might be get a starring role on stage playing the devilishly fun, Play Your Cards Right.

10) Who would’ve thought so much merriment and joy could be found inside an old nun's head.
