Duke of Edinburgh on Ferndale road in Brixton is famous for its huge beer garden and famous summer bbqs. It is hidden off the back streets joining Brixton and Clapham so may not yet be on your radar but this is one of our favourite Brixton pubs! There is a pool table, a good selection of beers on tap and a TV screen for watching the football. The real draw is the secret beer garden out the back that is a wonderful leafy retreat that will make you feel like you are drinking in a country pub in Surrey!
