Recently refurbished, brighter and more colourful than before with new tables and chairs. The service on my most recent visit was quick and polite. It's pricey, but in line with the immediate area. Small beer garden / smoking area out the back and in general it's a pleasant and comfortable place to have a beer on your way home or while your wait for your most likely delayed train. Gets rather busy as the night moves on though.

Unfortunately there obviously wasn't any money in the refurbishment budget to sort out the Gents toilets which have absolutely reeked on all of my visits pre and post the refurbishment.. Points off for this.

Pub opposite entrance to Herne Hill Station. Useful if your train is cancelled (which Thameslink trains frequently are). Pub has free wi-fi so can check times there. Usually quite busy, but service is always very prompt. Beer quality can vary a bit, but in my most recent visit I had a Harbour Brewing Company, Breakfast Pale Ale 4.5% which was very nice.

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!
