Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Jolly Gardeners

You would never guess it from the traditional façade, its location at the bottom end of Lambeth Walk or the name, but this pub is inexplicably German-themed in terms of both beer and food. The interior has been opened out at some stage to leave an island bar with dining furniture to one side and a rather more regimented array of tall tables on the other. Also has some tables out on the pavement and a rear patio area. Plenty of large, ceramic German founts distributed around the counter from the likes of Bitburger, Spaeten, Franziskaner, Erdinger and Weihestephan, but I went for the Krombacher Dark (£4.16).

This is a very large Victorian street corner pub which nowadays features German beers. A large central island bar features numerous large fonts but there is also a beer menu. I plumped for some kind of dark wheat beer at the happy hour price of £2.50 a half (normally £3 or £5 a pint). It came out very lively but in fairness the barmaid ensured a full half but probably wasting another one in the process.
The pub has a high red ceiling with black walls and a boarded floor, a rather gloomy if gothic look despite large clear glass windows but a side area with light wood panelling and a polycarbonate roof is a bit brighter. The bar gantry has some unusual illustrations repeated along its length.
Really this was a curiosity visit as much as anything as I stumbled across the pub while wandering around looking for a shop doing Oyster top ups....the station system was down. I sort of liked it but would never choose the place as an evening venue, the beer I had, despite being a bit cold and fizzy at least contained some flavour.

Nice building - large open plan area. Beers were all unknown german brews (Krombacher Hell) served in large tankards (probably still a pint) for £5 a pop.

Only in London.
