    Is now the only pub between my place in Loughborough Junction and Brixton that is still open, whichever way you walk. Even the Paulet has recently shut.
    The Hero does have a great sign by the bar though: "Order your own taxis".

    Best sandwiches of any pub in South London. Made freshly every time. Cheap too. Do they still do Young's there?

    I'll have to check. It's got to the point where I automatically order Guinness in a lot of pubs just 'cos it's so hard to get a decent pint of real ale in a pub not owned by an ale brewery.

    The Cambria is not a bad boozer. Usually good food, not sure really about the beer.

    If you're north of the river, the Wenlock does a mighty sandwich. Not sure they'd sink so low as to serve Young's, though :D

    Just off the tourist trail is the Hero - I think you need to be one to use it!

    I popped in there a couple of times when i lived nearby.

    The best I can compare it to is this. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. I remember it being a friendly bunch in there, not sure I'd order any food though (£2.99 a meal i think) :D

    I seem to recall it had two rooms, one of which they use for things like karaoke. you should definitely time your run for that.

    Might be up for it, handy to Loughborough Junction :)

    Driven past it so many times on my way up town. I'm intrigued how it got its name being a modern pub.

    I always liked those Taylor Walker pubs with the cannon as they would usually have Ind Coope Burton Ale. Why I don't know, but it's a great antidote to sugary Fullers and soapy Wells.

    Anyone joining us for a refreshing pint at the The Hero Of Switzerland later?

    Aiming for 7pm at the bar :)

    I'd join you guys tonight but I'm still bogged down by a heavy cold, next time.
