With the pub I'd planned to visit not yet open at 11:30, I found the Commercial opened and thought I'd have a swift one there. It's just opposite the railway station and has a nice feel to it. Surprisingly 3 ales were on - Sharps Doom Bar, Sambrooks Junction & Black Hill Rok. Even more surprising was a real cider - Orchard Pig Maverick. But when I pointed at the box and asked for a pint of cider, I was offered Aspalls or Addlestones. Another customer also came in and asked what ciders they served. Why is it that everybody forgets about the real cider and try to promote the artificial stuff?! Anyway, rant over. I quite enjoyed my half and all credit to them for actually stocking real cider.

The pub is very close to the train station and Brockwell Park (so nice for stopping off after you have had a walk). There were three real ales on. I was offered a taste as the beer I selected was 'unusual'. So a very friendly barman. The pint was much to my liking - well kept. The prices are high - so beware! Inside the pub is snug but with plenty of seating and there is a fixed price menu. I didn't try the food so can't comment on the quality. The punters there seemed more of the well to do set - unlike the Brixton end of Railton Road!

saw this place loads when coming out of herne hill station and thought it looked cool. finally made it there and wasn't impressed. we had reserved a table and yet someone was sitting there which was embarrassing when we had to get the staff to ask them to leave. having sat down, we discovered the seats were far too low for the table and we were gonna be eating. we were moved to a corner but this was far too dimly lit. we eventually moved away ourselves again. the food was okay, but for what they're charging it should have been great. i had southern fried chicken which was dullsville. i really thought the coating would be zingy and full of flavour. far from it. thin fries were aneemic in colour and needed 10 more mins at least in the oven. very pricy gastropub-style food but for what they're charging should have been so much better. Staff very sullen. And they also adopt the serving two people at a time system at the bar which irks me. Just show one customer your full attention at any given time. Could have been so much better.

The pub itself isn't too bad, although it could be cleaner, the real problem is the staff who treat customers with contempt. They are unhelpful and rude, and on a previous visit, unapologetic when caught out after over charging a customer. This pub really needs to raise its game and remember it's in the service industry, and that customers should be its focus not an inconvenience. My advice would be to avoid this pub and try the Florence, wine bar next door, or the Half Moon instead.
