As others have said this place is now called the Brown Derby. It's an excellent place to spend a couple of ours with friends on a weekend. The ambiance is laid back and unfussy. They have an ever changing beer selection with 3 or 4 ales on tap, yesterday it was By the Horns - Diamond Geezer, Redemption Pale Ale and ELB Foundation Bitter. Standard pub fare for food. Not the most amazing meal I've had, but you get a gigantic Sunday roast for £9. Recommended.

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.
