Just Bombardier and Marston's Pedigree on, the latter at £1.90 a half and in fairly poor condition I'm afraid. Just about all the tables had cutlery/napkins and menus in lieu of place mats on them, but there didn't seem to be a problem with sitting at one of them without eating. But I wasn't in at a peak time of course. The food didn't look to be anything special (nothing wrong with that of course) - various burgers are £10 a pop, "chicken dinner" is £9.50, and "stacks" (whatever they are) are £9.50.

It looks as if they're trying for a sort of Raffles drawing room elegance, with several aspdidistras lurking in corners, extravagant floral themed wallpaper, standard lamps, plus oriental prints and fans on the walls. It works to some extent I suppose. We have the usual mix of furnishings, with mainly normal tables and chairs, some tall tables/tall stools, and a cluster of sofas/armchairs in one of the corners. At the back on the right through some glazed doors is something called "the snug". Looking through the doors I could see at least one buggy and small children, so obviously I steered well clear of that room. Another point of interest is the table football in the main bar area.

The Young's sign outside made me think that there might be one or two of their branded ales on, but no such luck. I'm hoping that I was just unlucky with the Pedigree. This is a large old cornersite and spacious pub, with a certain amount of elegance. It's a comfortable enough place, but not sufficiently good enough to be a destination pub.

The Grand Union is a large looking pub that is on camberwell grove,it also has a free standing pub sign on grove lane with a walkway between the two roads.
Once inside there is a very large single room which is wrapped around the bar on three sides,there are tall tables and chairs to the front,high backed leather bench seating in bays to the right,there are normal tables and chairs in the middle area and to the rear,the room is carpeted and looked too posh for my liking.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Pedigree which was a decent enough drink,the other beer was Bombardier.
There was some very quite background music playing.
The pub was empty on my Saturday afternoon visit,it all seemed a bit too fussy for me.
This is not my type of pub at all.
