This is a very interesting pub from a heritage point of view. It's a typical backstreet locals' pub that's changed little over the years.The interior is the result of an inter-war refitting, and still retains the bar counter, wood paneled walls, and wooden screens dividing the two rooms. It's carpeted throughout, and the room on the left contains the dartboard and pool table. Furnishings are traditional tables and chairs, with what looks like some inter-war fixed bench seating as well.

Although it's a Breakspear's house, both the handpumps unfortunately had their clips reversed, and I saw no sign of food on our Thursday afternoon visit. The Guinness tasted OK. I don't think you would bother to wander the backstreets of Brixton behind the prison to seek this one out unless you wanted to see a largely unspoilt inter-war pub. But I liked it in here, and the landlady made us welcome. Maybe we were just unlucky that there was no real ale available during our visit.

Not a bad place, football seems to dominate the pub, lots of different team pictures adorn the walls. Sell real ale. Close to Brixton prison, so expect to see the guards in there. Has a back & front garden.
