The Old Nun's Head is a family pub in London nestled in the leafy green streets of Nunhead, close to Peckham Rye station. For the perfect taste of village life in the heart of South London The Old Nun's head is simply idyllic. Despite its vast size the historic building is as cosy as it is beautiful with wood panelled walls, working fire places and of course a friendly and welcoming bar that is well stocked with local ales and world wines.

Love street food? The Old Nun's head plays host to a revolving range of kitchen pop-ups with something to suit every taste (including a much-loved Sunday roast).

The Old Nun's Head is no stranger to private functions too, the upstairs lounge can be booked for parties, gigs, meetings, classes and more.

Best pub in Nunhead (for now..) décor is old/wooden which is current without being trendy & try-hard. With different street food on rotation almost every night, great atmosphere, great mix!

I was completely disappointed in the below average food I received when waiting over an hour. Cold, bland and unsatisfactory. After booking a table and reviewing the menu on line we arrived to find that the menu did not reflect the options available. The price does not reflect the food and service provided, worst meal I have ever had!!!!!!!
