The proper name is The Effra Tavern by the way. Apparently confusing for the trustafarian newbies who often wander in thinking they have lost their mates......nah, that's the Effra Social up the road love (also a very nice bar as it happens) Fewer and fewer of the old boys slamming down the dominoes now tho - either they've cashed in and moved off, or gone up (or down !) a few floors to another 'destination' Still the best local to have in Brixton IMHO however


This is the best pub around. Every kind of person goes here, young , old, male female its an united nations of folk (only funkier and more dedicated to ensuring world peace.) Thursdays night is extra special. Where else would you see the cream of Jamaican jazz musicians for free? Legendary Eddie Tan Tan Thornton a contemporary of the great Don Drummond, the founders of Ska and Rocksteady. Proper music by proper musicians. Sublime. Great beer, great staff, great home cooked food,great people in there.


"for the often excellent jazz." ..ummm... gig details? That's what I came here looking for!
