The spacious, muted interior consists of two rooms connected by arches at each side of the bar. The front room has a semi-circular bar counter, jukebox, and a mix of high and low level seating; the rear room has mainly standard tables and chairs. There is also a large upstairs function room and outside seating to the front under large canopies.

Marquis of Granby 322 New Cross Road New Cross SE14 6AG A traditional, wood panelled ex Charrington’s pub with an original central island bar and an Irish influence. Local bus stops are named after this wedge shaped landmark pub. Note The House of Toby tiling outside. Serves two regular real ales and sometimes dabbles in a third one, sometimes from a local brewery enterprise.

Normally up to four cask ales are available, usually one or two of which are from the house brewery plus guest beers with a mainly regional focus, including from local microbreweries. Quiz on Monday evening, life drawing on Tues evening and live jazz on Sunday, plus a DJ on from time to time. The food offering includes burgers and steak.
