Visited on Sunday 28th February 2016. Huge old pub that has currently stopped brewing. Lots of rooms. Visited and the place was heaving with families having Sunday Dinner, the nearby market probably didnít help. A decent range of cask and Keg beers, plenty of local beers. Condition was good. Prices not too bad. Service was pretty poor with the bar staff seemingly having no clue. Itís a pity as itís a pretty nice place, decor is a little too modern for the building. Handy stop if visiting Bullfinch and Canopy but this is the one youíd miss out.

As a local with limited alternatives, I have visited often. Their own brews are acceptable but uninspiring. They should bring in someone with more passion and imagination for this. Their selection is equally unimaginative, dominated by volume "craftish" beers. Food variable, moderate to goodish. Good area at the back that is very popular for BBQs in summer.

2 home brews. Both OK, but not worth a long trip.

I DID NOT enjoiyed my stay here not for some specific reason but simply because their beer are just MEDIOCRE ,being polite , and even the place itís nothing special ..

This pub used to be known as The Brockwell Tavern in the early 2000ís, an Irish pub in the same ilk as and design as say an OíNeills, and very handy for illegal Saturday afternoon viewing of the Premiership football as it was known at the time. It was fairly popular back then, but obviously not enough to stay open. This latest Brewpub incarnation is probably a better long-term business.

The Florence is a brewpub located in the heart of Herne Hill. The ambiance is contrived and frustrating. The place adopts an aesthetic of ímanufactured comfortí. Itís what a pub would look like if you hired a team of consultants to furnish a pub based on market research of what well-heeled Independent readers think they want in a local. The service was barely acceptable, my barwoman acted as if she wanted to be anywhere else but work. The selection was curious - there were 2 house brews on offer plus a bunch of boring, paint-by-numbers ípremiumí macro options. Why would a brewpub offer such lazy alternatives to their own beer? The house brew I tried wasnít in good condition. Of course, previous Florence beers Iíve tried havenít been good anyway, so I probably wasnít missing out. The prices were actually more reasonable than I thought theyíd be, a lone bright spot on my visit. Overall, yeah, I donít like this place.

Just the two house brews available on hand pump, although they both may not always be on. The beers are lacklustre unfortunately, the venue itself leaves a lot to be desired.

Great local gastro and brew pub. Be sure to try the microbrewed beer house beers.

Modern young-leaning spacious brew-pub with four taps offering up to three, but usually two, of the pubís own Florence beers at any time plus guests. Also note one or two interesting kegs such as Vedett. Central island bar, subdued lighting and comfortably-pitched background music, along with a colourfully decorated beer garden. I experienced both disappointing and then surprisingly good service, in that initially there was a long (15min) wait for table service despite the bar area being quite empty. Once I received service the waitress was very professional, attentive and helpful. I enjoyed my food - the steakburger - from a fairly simple but tasty food menu, and the fish goujons were very good too. Overall, I enjoyed my visit and indeed stayed longer than intended. I will return.
