|Not called the Grey Derby: called the Brown Derby, this is now a friendly idiosyncratic pub which has excellent jazz and similar evenings with a wide variety of eccentric clientele. Food is basic but cheap and wholesome. Beer range is fantastic and constantly changing: mainly from micro breweries, and that makes it by far the best pub in the area for me|

|They closed it and painted the outside (and perhaps the inside) brown. It's now called the Brown Derby. Daren't go in.|

|Nice enough place which I often use if I'm down there for the cricket.|
Very down to earth place with a friendly crowd and staff. Good jukebox helped atmosphere.
Tried the Bombadier but it wasnt the best to be honest.
Crazy old Londoner regalling us with tales of cricketers of yore. Obviously a regular. He got more animated after each mouthful. His language would have made Alf Garnett blush, but he was no bother. Probably added to the atmosphere if anything. Rather have him than some of the hoorays who pitch up at the cricket!

|Been through a few traumatic changes of management (and maybe ownership) in recent months but hopefully now stabilised under mein host Tony's affable stewardship. Bitter was sporadic for a while, but supply now seems more reliable. Great folks in here (many of them from central casting). If you unsuspectingly take an overdue Lambeth-library book in with you, they think you're being anti-social and insist you join them for a good old Daily Mail-inspired rant. Studded green-leather benches make you feel like an MP fiddling his expenses with his mistress (only without the mistress and the expenses). Bring back the greyhound-burgers, rubber lettuce and bakelite chips of yesteryear, I say.|

|I called in for a pint and a packet of cheese & onion at 6pm today (Friday). Draught ales on offer were Bombardier and Hobgoblin; I opted for the former, which was pretty good. It was quiet, and most punters kept themselves to themselves. I sat at the end of the bar reading one of the Evening Standards set out for punters. Heart FM was playing pretty loudly. The barman seemed to know everyone else who came in; this feels like a 'regulars' place, and I was made to feel welcome.|
