A-Z Pub Crawl: Where Is The Best Pub In Brixton?

A-Z Pub Crawl: Where Is The Best Pub In Brixton?

Can you recommend a good pub or bar near Brixton station?

This is the second part of our two-year-long A-Z pub crawl of London. Last month you voted for the best in Angel, which we subsequently visited (pictures here).

Now we move on to the letter B, we've chosen Brixton as the area, and our good friends at Brixton Blog are helping us out. Here's how to play:

  1. Let us know (in the comments, on Facebook, or by tweeting #bestbrixtonpub) your favourite pubs in the Brixton area.
  2. We’ll tally up the votes on Friday lunch.
  3. We’ll then arrange a pub crawl around the three or four most popular choices. You’re welcome to join us.
  4. You can nominate anywhere in reasonable walking distance of Brixton Tube station. This is, of course, subjective, but over a large number of votes we should hit some kind of consensus about what's reasonable.
  5. By ‘pubs’, we’re using a shorthand — you can also vote for bars. Venues that only function as late-night clubs are not included.
  6. You can nominate more than one place. All nominations count as one vote, whether you rank them or not.
  7. Venues should be open to the public with no pre-booking, entry fee or membership required.

So, where shall we go?

I'd be inclined to say Plan B, but looks like you're not including clubs in that list...

Trinity Arms and Seven at Brixton - NB Seven is only open in the evenings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday


The Duke of Edinburgh. Every time. The beer garden is just phenomenal. Has to be seen to be believed.


The Duke of Edinburgh! Lovely fire for the winter, HUGE garden for the summer. Perfect.


1. Trinity Arms (Trinity Square)
2. Mango Landin' (Brixton Water Lane)3. Prince Regent (Dulwich Road - too far?)4. White Horse (Brixton Hill)
5. Duke of Edinburgh (Ferndale Road)

That is all.

Duke of Edinburgh is absolute classic (even if the landlady once egged me) - those curious should ask me on Twitter. The Effra is also amazing - live jazz & jerk chicken.


The White Horse on Brixton Hill definitely!

A pub crawl around the three or four most popular choices?
That aint a pub crawl.
A real brixton pub crawl will last for three or four days, not three or four pubs.
