Used to love this place. When I first went it had a front bar that was about authentic as it got. Became a little grotty with time, but the quiz was brilliant, being run by enthusiasts and raising loads of dosh for St Christophers Hospice.

Long since blown away, but thanks as this made me try the EDT after a ten year absence which is much more my cup of tea (or pint of beer).

Now called The Great Exhibition.

Some people were playing monopoly. Danger Mouse was showing ironically on a tv screen with the sound turned down. Del Boy and Rodney were pictured promoting their New Years Eve Party, batman and robin style. It made your great aunt laugh back in 1990 something. Neither Rodney nor Denzil would drink in here.

As has been said previously, this pub is now the Great Exhibition. It is tucked away on a street corner in the back streets of East Dulwich. I was slightly disappointed with the pub. It's a Laines pub and the only 2 ales on offer were both from Laine - 48 & Best Bitter. There was no real cider either. It was very noisy in there too, with some kind of entertainment that was more annoying than entertaining. The interior was also a little too dark for my liking. Seemed to have a fairly young, well-heeled crowd, with some dining. But there are far better pubs in East Dulwich in my opinion.

My first visit here and I wasn't expecting how busy and noisy it would be at 1pm on a Saturday.

Brunch was the reason the place was so packed, not a spare table in site and only room at the bar for a beer.

5 hand pumps with 3 ales on which were Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale Ale & Junction & Laine's Best Bitter. Again I opted for a bottle which was Fordham - Copperhead Ale - 5.0%

This is a large 1 bar establishment with plenty of tables aswell as original features these include large industrial style ceiling lights above the bar, big glass fronted windows, attractive decorated glass and wooden bar and bizarrely a large cows head with horns on the wall in the rear garden / smoking area.

A decent pub but hard to judge whether its a great pub as brunch was the most important thing for 95% of the punters during my visit.

Another one I will return to.

Ales all far too hoppy for my liking.

4.20 for a pint of Symonds Cider, but then again, that's about the average price is this part of South East London these days.

The pub itself is done out in a quite modern / couches etc type fashion, to attract families and young proffesionals eating overpriced meals.

It's not really my bag but then again, you may well dig it.
