Now open as The Paxton and run by the Capital Pub Company. Ok beers but as with some of their other pubs like the Florence in Herne Hill, more like a creche than a pub with pushchairs as far as the eye can see.

I much prefer Beer Rebellion, the temporay pub in an old shop oppostie Gispy Hill station, just 2mins walk up the hill.

This pub has now closed. It was extensively refurbished and re-opened as The Paxton (its previous name).

Agree with others, the refurb does your head in. A recall it being fairly modern, but relaxing. Now it just gives you a headache. And with all the busy fussy seating arrangement a bloody great plasma screen with the football on. A pub clearly that can't make its mind up.

But in a game of two halfs, despite the Greene King takeover, and their awful beer, a very locally brewed ale was being served. A little too flat for my liking, giving the appearance of coming straight from the cask under gravity, but still to be welcomed. AND a young barman who was very interested in ale, another plus

The food is very good and it attracts a nice mixed crowd. The beer (Tea, Junction) is kept pretty well. The decor is a little whacky but it works. My only complaint is that the service is a little haphazard, but the charm of the place more than compensates. Worth a visit.

Went to the pub for the first time last night for quiz night, they were handing out flyers at Gipsy Hill for a 200 guaranteed pot. Suffice to say we didn't win (a bigger group would have helped!) but we had a sensational burger and lamb shank.
will definitely be going back
