please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I lived a hop skip n a jump from this pub for two years 03 04. Being an Aussie I found it to be a typical old run down local boozer which for me being Australian it was something I had never experienced so therefore was interesting. The interior seemed to be old and cheap. As the beer offered was cheap too. I once tried to steal a half pint once and was caught by publican, he made it known to all the patrons therefore telling me to give it back. I then offered to purchase one which I did. It was pretty trashy and old, and yes odd smells were present but it was cheap and just a stop off on our way to other bars. For me being Aussie it was certainly different.

Bugger. Missed it. Just wanted to see the legend. He who hesitates is lost,

Death's waiting room. Near the station, yes, but worse than even what that implies. Foul, dingy, to all intents and purposes on its last legs. Nightmarish.

the meyrick is stuff of myth and legend, half the punch ups are husband wife domestics and not just a new person walking in! USED to be great, ten years ago when mick had it, it had a fantastic sense of community now it just has more new managers than regulars,you can always watch the strategicaly placed bucket on or near the pool table catching the water dripping through the ceiling whilst waiting for a game of pool.nice.

Awful. Simply an unloved way-station for local alcoholics, stumbling toward dementia.

Great pub. Cheap beer, friendly service, good pool table, proper locals, the odd scary dog, dodgy toilets, people who come round asking if you want to buy some meat, bar billiards (out of order the last I looked), did I say cheap beer?

Went on 2 occasions, when I lived up the road. The second time was to see if it was as terrible as the first visit revealed. A bunch of inbred cretins. 1 bloke was so drunk he pissed himself, and was still served.

What's the matter? Can't anyone take a joke?
First impressions can be misleading. O.K. the American Bar at the Savoy it's not but what this pub does have is genuine local character. Unlike the Falcon, Yates's and all the boring soulless places in Northcote Road.
Since the arrival of the excellent Australian Manager and his trusty Irish sidekick the place has led me astray on many occassions. Particular highlights are cheap beer, fiercely competitive pool and observing the locals whilst Chelsea are on the big screen.
Check it out if you dare.

Can understand why some people don't like it, as its a London local from maybe 40 years ago. I've used it on and off over the years and have never had any bother, despite appearances, locals can be very friendly, beer very cheap, just lok at it as a cockney gangsters' theme pub and relax.

Used this pub once after comming off the train.Im not from london and dont know this area.Ifound the pub intimidating but not terrifying. Armoured cars really.As for joe dont comment on apub with from what igather.A lot of the pubs slagged off on this website are comments from people who have clearly never drank in the place.

There is a good reason that I am the only person that has commented on this pub - Anyone that has ever bought a pint in this pub is either dead (probably through a fight in 'The Meyrick' as I am sure they would call it) or, alternatively, they have no idea how to string a sentence together, let alone use a PC. I went in here to use the toilet a couple of years ago. I was scared shitless. Now, the closest I get to it is cycling past it (at speed, still scared. Absolutely awful, although would probably still prefer to drink here than the Yates's. That really is tacky.
