Best pub garden in South London (in my humble opinion). Popular pub, get there early to nab a good spot!


This is a really lovely bar hidden away in the quieter streets of Brixton. Its warm and intimate and has a great atmosphere overall. The bar leads out onto an amazing beer garden outside. The garden is huge and even has a mini golf course. There is a Jerk kitchen stall outside where you can order various Jamaican foods that are really tasty. The only downside would be that the garden closes at 10pm! 


One mainly frequented by Brixton locals (and also some of the back end of Clapham North), doesn't look like much on the outside but a great bar and even better beer garden. During the Summer it is one of the top places for drinking al fresco with accompanying BBQ and also an excellent atmosphere. I have had (and hosted) many a birthday party here and it never disappoints. Definitely worth moving off the beaten track on Brixton high st to this hidden gem. 

Great boozer, great atmosphere, incredible garden and friendly staff.
what more could you want?

The most inconspicuous little pub turns out to have the most insane beer garden! With a BBQ shack, garden bar, about 60 benches and even a mini golf range in a tent at the back. The beer is great, the vibe is really chilled out, the only issue is the queue for the bar which is painfully long and slow. Get there early and stock up on drinks!

Great garden, has a tiki bar and a bbq in summertime. in the winter, it's converted into a crazy golf course. Great pub to watch the rugby as well!

The best part of the Duke of Edinburgh is its beer garden, it is huge! I love it when it comes to summer. They do also bbq food so you can stay there all day long.


I only went to this pub to visit Plonk Brixton (Crazy Golf).

From the outside it just looks a very normal British pub in a not so cool area but when you go inside and straight to the back you find a big outside area with potential to be great during the summer.

The fact that they have Plonk Brixton there is a plus and give it a really cool/trendy vibe.

Also they have a really friendly cat hanging around.


Pub in the back streets of Brix-taaaan! Huge beer garden, so fantastic in the summer and they also have the occasional pop up food stall. Great for families during the day, it’s moderately big inside too with a pool table and TV. Staff are really cool, very local pub feel but caters to people coming in for the ‘start of a night out’ drink.

You get some characters in there but I’ve never experienced any problems as the doorman are always on it and what’s a night out without a little drama in your local boozer?! (Pictures are from the Cornish Grill pop-up)


I first came to the Duke of Edinburgh to meet a friend who suggested the place. It was probably one of the last days of summer and the very large, sunny beer garden at the back of the pub promised a pleasant afternoon of chilling out, drinks and some food.

And I quiet enjoyed it. We spent the whole afternoon and some of the evening, had quite a few drinks and scarfed down a massive (and very tasty) Sunday roast. The brownie that followed it was also massive and very tasty (we shared it... don't judge!).

The summer is gone but a very large group of us still gathers here on Sundays for a roast after awaking from our varying states of hangover from our busy London weekends.

Though it is not the flashiest of places, the food and service are good and there are always lots of people about (mostly other weekend  degenerates such as ourselves and the lads finishing up their Sunday footie on the pitches across the street).

As a spot for a lazy, no stress, no fuss Sunday in Brixton... I'm not sure it gets better this

What used to be the best pub in brixton is now a shell of its former self. After the apparent turfing out of the old land lord and staff, last year, the place has not just gone down hill but belly flopped with an almighty splash into the puddle at the bottom of the barrel. The picture hooks, left bare, hanging from the ceiling and walls, serve as clawing reminders of the pleasures this place used to hold. The decor, the atmosphere, the food, the 'music'....all gone sour. As a resident of brixton, with no other motive than the desire to have a drink in a pleasant local pub, i post this review with the hope that one day this pub will return to its former glory.

My two stars are for the excellent beer garden - it's huge and was lovely sit in now that we are finally having some sunshine. Unfortunately, that is where the good news ends. The food was awful. My fish and chips arrived partially raw, when I sent it back they took it back to the kitchen and returned it - without fish and just burned batter and some skin stuck to it. I couldn't believe it. Another member of our group had to give his fish back for the same reason. The rest had braised beef or pork belly. The accompanying yorkshire puddings were stale and hard as a rock. In summary, by all means, go and sit in the fabulous beer garden in the sunshine. As for the food, stay well clear. Brixton has such excellent food these days (all of Brixton Village, Courtesan, The Prince Regent, New Fujiyama...), don't waste your time with the shabby, over-priced food and the exceedingly rude manager from this place.
