I loved the look of the pub in the preview I posted on Wednesday, and last night I went along to the full opening of the Crown & Anchor, a fab new real ale bar in Brixton.

I arrived late but the place was still really busy, and the ale flowed mightily.

I don’t exactly remember all the brews I ended up drinking, although I do recall that the south London-brewed Kernel was a delight.

Here’s some photos from the evening. I’ll certainly be back for more!

I think I tried rather a lot of these. Too many, some may say :)

The bar has a really excellent selection of beers and it’s definitely worth a trip out just to see what’s new.

The only real minus point that some complained about was the noise: with its bare walls, wooden floor and big windows, people can make a right old racket.

It didn’t bother me (aren’t pubs supposed to be loud places?) but I certainly heard one or two grumbles.
