In the mean streets (and ropey pub scene) of Brixton lies this really rather nice little oasis in a neat and secluded little square only a few yards off the main drag. Having made myself look like a wally by trying to get in through various locked doors, I eventually entered round the side. It’s obviously been molested by the Youngs wrecking crew at some point in the last few years, as the U shaped interior lacks intrinsic charm that a building of this stature should warrant. Three casks ales at the island bar, 2x Youngs and Twickenham Grandstand. Outrageously, the cost of two pints was £9.30, though at least the quality of the two I got were very good and superb – I’d have been raging otherwise. Staff were a mixture of schooled and the scatty. With no spare tables inside we schlepped out the back via a heavy glass door that – stupidly, given the traffic of full pints one way – opened inwards into the pub making it near-impossible to get through with more than one pint in hand without summoning assistance. The garden was pretty swish, covered by tentage with an odd open square brick fire. Clientele were mainly on the younger, trustafarian / self-facilitating media node side of things. We witnessed peak Zone1 behaviour, with a loud and pushy girl literally bullying a lad off his table space so she and her pals could take it. Overall, this place doesn’t have enough to warrant big marks but as a haven away from Brixton’s main thoroughfare, it’s ideal for a pre-gig drink.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Trinity Arms

Excellent Youngs pub, geographically a short distance from the main road through Brixton but in other respects a world away in a quiet little square. Some interesting exterior features, and inside it has been opened out into a horseshoe-shaped bar with high ceilings. Very comfortably furnished, and flowers on most of the tables brighten the interior. Also features a few wooden benches out front and a 'secret' patio beer garden to the rear. Ordinary, Special, London Gold and the seasonal Hummingbird (£3.95) available from four of six handpumps on this visit. Well worth seeking out.

This rare example of a relatively unspoilt Young's pub certainly looks the part, the half tiled exterior, glorious floral displays, original looking windows complete with the Young's Ram figure etched together with a favourable location at the side of a leafy and tranquil square. If transported here you would have no clue that you were about 250m from the vibrant and noisy centre of Brixton.
Inside is an island bar, wood flooring, the bar gantry has a quintet of jazz musician statuettes in full flow. A section of more modern shelving houses a TV which was showing the World Cup football as well as a few books and board games. A wall mounted World Cup chart was meticulously kept up to date. The previous three bar layout is evident, reinforced by the tiled external signs. Seating is reassuringly traditional at tables of varying size including the current fashion of reclaimed dining tables. Not much décor wise, a few obligatory local scenes, always welcome by me old maps, plus a "wall" of postcards from holidaying regulars, it seems a card gets you a free drink on your return, a no-brainer then. Food is served but nothing happening at 5:30 on Saturday.
There is a bit of outdoor seating on a front terrace and at the not so-"secret garden" to the rear which was a pleasant spot surrounded by high brick walls.
No guest beers, Young's Bitter, Special and London Gold but nonetheless I did take to this traditional pub and would certainly revisit when in Brixton.
