Has had a name change, now called Griffin Belle. Undergoing a refurb at the moment, hopefully not going upmarket and losing its character, very tempting as lots of expensive apartments being built in the area. Won't leave a rating as haven't checked out the new look yet. Update: The refurbishment has finished, had a quick look in as wasn't open at the time, the staff were getting used to the place. Looks completely different. Gone are the posters and pictures around the wall. The bar has a bright tiled front to it. Looks like the garden has gone. Brick wall where there used to be fencing and a gate into the garden. The manager (I think that was who it was) told me they will open until 1am on some days and 2am on others. Hope the posh neighbours love the noise. Still has 3 real ale taps. Will give further update, when I actually buy a drink there. OKay, further update. Bright interior, white ceiling, white tiled wall behind the optics and white & yellow tiles on the front of the bar. has 4 real ale taps, Doombar, Broadside, Wainwright & Mad Goose Purity. The garden has gone, but there are more seats outside. Polished wood floor, nice priced menu. Pool table gone and the best bit, the gents has been done up. I thought I wouldn't like it, but I was wrong. best to visit yourself. Rating gone up. See new review.

The price of Wainwright ale has gone up to £4.95. Used to like this pub, friendly staff. But it has priced me out of their customers. If there was a zero rating, it would be given so gave it 1 and that is being generous. Not going back in there again.

Vauxhall Griffin

The Vauxhall Griffin, what a place
There's not a bare wall in sight
With pictures and posters everywhere
To see them all may take all night
The seating is very comfortable
There's not a plain seat anywhere
So once you have claimed your place
You won't want to leave your chair
There is a garden at the side
For when the sun does shine
And just to make this poem scan
It's on the Victoria line
They have a room called the Ruby Lounge
Which is up on the first floor
It's used as a free cinema
So no tickets at the door
If you're in the Wandsworth Road
Near the Vauxhall end
Drop into the Griffin pub
You can even bring a friend.
