Time Out's best three Brixton pubs

    Extremely annoying. I'm a Dad that has taken my kids to the Florence loads of times on my own - I demand equal rights to get pissed while they watch CBeebies.
  2. None of that sounds like the pubs fault. I was there wit ha 4 year old and she managed to open the door and run in and out no probs. Children can at times play rough, and if not one parent out of all of them is keeping an eye thats up to the parents. I dont think the pub should have to provide a supervisor (though theres a business idea there!)

    Kind of fair enough, but again, a padded dedicated playroom isn't in itself a bad thing IMO, certainly not worse than a beer garden, and definitely better than a pub with 'no children' written on the door.

    I was fine with the Regent till they ran out of beer the one time I took my dad there. And fine with the Florence till it took an hour and a half to serve a hamburger. What was the other one? I expect it found a way to let me down too.

    Now even the Trinity has been painted grey and become attractive to younger less discriminating people who don't object to bad service. The Elm Park Tavern though I have to say is good for both booze and service and an absolute riot. So see you there Leanderpeople! (And hello to the knitting lady.)

    White Horse was in top 3. It's alright for an early evening drink before it starts filling up with the professional crowd. Elm Park is fine, but hope refurb doesn't drive all the regulars away and turn it into a yuppy pub

    It's stupid, why pick 2 pubs on the same fucking road when there is another pub just round the corner thats better than both of them, I practically lived opposite the Regent but would still choose to go to the Commercial.

    I suppose it's more diff to deny the Commercial is in HH and not 'Brixton' - even if it's about 50 yards further.

    if they say the Florence is Brixton then so is The Commercial, they are separated by a tiny alley.

    Funny how Tony Elliot started Time Out for "us" and now it's for "them".

    I went to Florence on Friday with ladies from antenatal class and our collection of babies and buggies. - can't get through the door easily with pushchair, every mother in the area had bought their child to that pub so was a bit overcrowded.

    I really wouldn't rate it as a top Brixton pub mainly because it's in Herne Hill. It's not really my kind of pub.

    that's probably because on Fridays there are two baby classes held in the playroom and many stay for lunch afterwards - it's by far the busiest weekday for mums and kids.

    It is basically a crap pub imo but it does have things going for it (a couple of decent ciders help) which do mean occasional visits.

    I went off it when they stopped serving Erdinger.

    The 25pc off deal is great though.

    I actually went to a restaurant a few days ago that has a play area WITH minders. It was in Johannesburg however.

    It's one of our favs but we rarely go because it costs a fiver. I used to go with a friend in another location from time to time. High days and holidays! :D There are now 2 classes on Fri morning I believe (according to mail out).

    Recommended by another urbanite in North London - the lady who runs it is absolutely excellent. Possibly our two are getting a bit old for it now tbh but I can see me going again with no. 2...
