A grand old dame of a pub in the centre of Herne Hill and opposite Brockwell Park. In the front, we are large, light and airy around our central island bar (adults only). Out the back, we have our large decked garden, family friendly areas and a dedicated kids playroom. To eat, we serve traditional pub food with a modern approach. We go for product quality over marketing for our draught and bottled beer collection and have a range of rotating ales, including those brewed in our own micro-brewery. Dog friendly, date-night friendly, spot of food and then drinks for a celebration friendly, bring your folks for lunch when they are visiting friendly. You get the idea - we are quite friendly.

This is a nice dark pub with a relaxed vibe to it and possibly the nicest smelling kitchen ever. Their own beer Florence - Dam Tasty Beaver beer was very cloudy, but actually tasted good as promised.

The music was high quality too.

They have a nice looking outside area,with an outside bar. They must be doing a roaring trade.more

Be very careful with the food here. I've just come from the hospital where I took my fiancé to find out why she's had awful abdominal pain, swollen tummy and not been able to eat for the last few days. The doc said food poisoning and it came from the mussels she ate at this place. We have both eaten the same thing all week apart from that night where I didn't like the smell of the mussels and...more

The decor is really nice inside, with lots of nice seating near the bar but also a more formal sitting area at the rear which forms the restaurant.

Definitely one to check out if you're in the area and also...more

With its quirky interior, varied choice of beer and large beer garden, I was already warming to the Florence. Then DJ Shadow's 'Building Steam With a Grain of Salt' suddenly started playing and my respect for the pub immediately doubled.

Even without their adventurous taste in music, the Florence is a pleasant place for a drink or meal. There's a good choice of slightly unusual European...more

I used to cycle past here and always wanted to stop in. I finally did on a rainy night heading back north from Olly's.

The crowds outside during the sunshine (it's right across the street from Brockwell Park) and the words 'A Brew Pub" had me excited and interested. I was left a little disappointed.

It's not that it's a bad place. It's all dark tables and sleek and modern inside, with an...more
