The name of this establishment threw me off at first.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when a friend invited me there but I was not disappointed when I got there. The ambiance is rustic but cool and boisterous at the same time.

It made me feel like I was fresh out of university and hanging out with like minded people. Maybe that's where the inspiration for the name and theme came from.

Oh and the food was nice too. Different. I liked it very much.

Always an amazing experience at Job Centre, the menu changes each time I go and everything I've eaten there has wowed me to the extreme. The food is incredible to say the least, the flavours of the shared dishes are inventive and so well balanced, and the staff are really attentive and well versed in the menu. 10/10 will always recommend to friends and family (all of whom fall in love with this place and it's interior charm too)

I came here with low expectations of a packed hipster bar with bad beer, bad service and bad atmosphere. What I found was the complete opposite. On a Friday evening my small group enjoyed great drinks, tasty food, good music and quick service. There was a good atmosphere yet plenty of room. Everything was clean and tidy. I'll definitely come again if in the area.

I've only ever visited this place for an afternoon aperitif. It's very much the Deptford new scene which is, in essence, the Shoreditch old scene. On my visits I've never had anything to complain about but never felt any great appreciation of the establishment. If you like shabby-chic then this is the place for you. Indifference would be a good summary.

Antic chain pub taking its name from previous occupants who I guess decided they couldn't effectively provide the service of giving people jobs, so Antic decided to provide jobs for the area instead. Decent selection of cask and keg ales, warm atmosphere, haven't tried the food but I'm always envious of the diners as it looks and smells pretty fine.

Quirky front facade, the european cusine menu has dishes that have to be ordered singly so you end up ordering 3 to 4 dishes to get a balanced main course meal, as none of the meals come with the usual rice, spuds or veg (hence why you have to order so many dishes). The is no parking but the station isn't too far, a bit on the pricy side for me.

Finally I've found a place that the good lady indoors incourages me to visit daily while im on the dole.(if only she knew what it really is) They should have these places nationwide.
I visited the job centre to look for a job and came out with a alcohol addiction. 5* all round.

Really not very nice pub, hasn't been cleaned in an age, a 'hipster' place so not the best start and after a few years of neglect is even worse, it really is a health hazard. There are plenty of nice bars opening around Deptford station - I would go to any of those instead.

£3.30ish for a pint of hop head. Say no more! Always able to get a seat as well. Despite what most people I talk to think just because of the name/history of the building, this is a good pub and is actually one of the more modestly priced places in the area. Clean, tidy no frills place.

It's a really cool and different kind of pub. The wine was good and the service was fine.
However I would have liked a little background music and maybe a few more smiles from the staff as it wasn't a particularly busy day.
I'll definitely come back again though

Very original place with great atmosphere, intriguing decor, beautiful people, good choice of good quality drinks, DJ, guest kitchen, back garden, dog friendly....the list goes on and on... It's a must visit place, but please keep it secret ;) We don't want to spoil it.

Cool dog friendly pub with a good drink selection and an awesome and unusual tapas style small plates - including the incredible cheese puffs. There’s DJs and music on the weekend and it’s normally really busy with a great vibe and an interesting mix of people.

5 by Laura Turvey Review source

Great space, literally massive. They should use it better, do concerts, events, performance. Is a bit of a shame, I think it could be far more well used than that. Also, they should improve the food menu. Anyway I really like it.

Super friendly staff and a nice selection of drinks at good prices. The food menu isn't too extensive but all our meals tasted great, try the southern fried chicken bun! Really nice atmosphere too

Quirky fun pub with friendly staff and some really good small plates so you can try pretty much the whole menu when you share it with friends. Highly recommended and definitely a little gem

Only ever been in in the daytime, staff are pleasant enough, good beer selection and the food takeovers look great but never had a chance to try. The decor doesn't stand up to daylight!

Cool bar, massive interior and good selection of beers. Really like the interior, really spacious with lots of seating. Food was good, and everything fairly prices.

4 by Finn Lindsay Review source

Fun bar set in the old job centre - plenty of style and interesting drinks as well as great guest food spots. Can be quiet but also large enough for groups.

Wonderful bar, freindly , good service , smoking garden at rear, clean with interesting decor. Very sociable place to be. Try quiz night for a bit of fun

5 by Lulu Tay Review source

Interesting bar named after a former job centre that was on the same site. Now has up to six cask beers on, along with various Keg options and cocktails.

3 by Mark Davis Review source

Decent selection of beers, unfortunately there isn't much of a food menu. Decor is suitable on trend for the hipster vibe it is trying to create.

I found plenty of cockroaches in that place, absolutely disgusting, the bartender look like he doesn't care about health&safety issues.

Great trendy pub and very friendly staff. Food is excellent especially the veg roast dinner option although the menu choices are quite limited.

5 by yumtum bubble Review source

Large Antic pub in former job centre, with good beer choice, cocktails and food. Has a basic outside area for when the sun's out.

4 by Nathan Roberts Review source

Great vibe in this trendy bar. Nice cocktails, friendly bar staff and one of the best menus around, can't recommend the food enough.

5 by Jamie Smith Review source

Genuinely used to be a jobcentre before Deptford was gentrified. Always a diverse bunch of people there, generally a good atmosphere.

4 by peter marsden Review source

Hidden gem in the heart of Deptford. I had an amazing experience with lovely staff. I would definitely recommend their Sunday roast!

5 by Walter De Intinis Review source

5 by Romina Lopez Review source

This place didn't have very good beers on and just didn't have a very warm or relaxing atmosphere, it's just OK.
