Small seating areas both Inside and out, not very comfortable in either. The staff were friendly enough but fairly uninterested in all honesty. Huge array of drinks on offer, some very expensive but others reasonable. The mango cider was nice if not a touch too...More

Good Pale Ale's, close to the station, on the way to the academy, and an outside seating area in a quieter street. Perfect!

Tried it again as going to a gig at the Academy. Service had much improved despite the big crowd. Great range of beers. Not cheap but if you want great beer you have to pay for it. Well worth a visit.

Huge selection of craft beers and ales. they offer deals on taking away and still serve the standard spirits. Prices very reasonable for location, and much cheaper than other places in the area.

Popped in on route from Brixton tube to the Brixton Academy, wow what a great range of beers! You have a row of hand pumps on the bar and even more taps up above. They give you a taster first if you ask, I recommend...More

I know a bit about real ale. I've been drinking it for 30+ years, I've been a member of CAMRA for 25, I'm an award-winning brewer for a living, and I judge regional beer competitions across the UK. So when I take a pint back...More
