john gray left this review about Southern Cross

Rather scruffy Greene King pub in an very expensive area. Visited to watch the Lions demolish Australia. Quiet at lunch time on a Sat. 2 handpulled beers on with the IPA in good nick. Carling was only £2.30 a pint and seemed to be the best seller.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Southern Cross

A Greene King pub, now back to its previous name after a period when it was called the Peterborough. Located in good location overlooking Eel Brook Common, it has an attractive frontage with full height bay windows each side of the main entrance. Inside, the high ceilings (and aforementioned large windows) mean that it has a light and airy feel. However, given the exterior symmetry, it comes as a slight surprise to find the bar to one side rather than being directly in front of you when entering. The need (or choice?) of a spiral staircase up to the function room or down to the toilets is also a bit curious. There is the usual mix of modern furniture you tend to get following refurbishments, plus a small amount of outdoor seating at the front. Beer-wise, there are just two handpumps usually offering Abbot and IPA (but the former was off on my last visit). You may also find some of the customers rather loud and the bar staff disinterested. Overall, it is all getting rather tatty and is in need of a revamp and/or better management - rating reduced by 2 points.
