This Brixton pub used to have a reputation for being a bit of a bad influence, keeping its visitors in way past their bedtime with its own special brand of revelry. Today it looks like a more civilised affair, with a focus on locale ales and food nudging toward the gastro.
That means draught beers from the likes of By the Horns, Gipsy Hill, Brick, Sambrook's, Portobello Brewing Co and Orbit. There's a solid selection by the bottle, too. The food menu includes poshed-up fish and chips, chicken liver parfait with red onion chutney, salt-fish croquettes with tartare sauce and sea bream with new potatoes and sauce vierge.
And if you miss how this place used to be? Live music and DJ nights are probably the closest it gets, just don't expect to get a lock-in until beer o'clock the next day.
