SquareMeal Review of
The Duke of Edinburgh
Well turned-out and tastefully revamped, the Duke of Edinburgh gets into the Brixton spirit and does its duty as a neighbourhood community boozer with add-ons. A couple of real ales such as St
Austell Tribute are on the pumps, and drinkers can carouse amid long wooden tables, retro lamps, flea-market posters and loungey armchairs while watching sport on the big TV screens or nibbling
eclectic pub grub (think chorizo baguettes and haloumi skewers). There’s a pool table, too, plus a stage for bands and weekend DJs, but the Duke’s undoubted selling point is its massive beer
garden (complete with an outdoor bar) – a must-visit for balmy summer evenings or sizzling weekend BBQs. Usefully placed for gig-goers on their way to the Brixton Academy.
