Catering for a wide cross-section of Brixton society, this is the sort of constant, never-changing pub you could set your watch by. Well, hardly-ever changing - it's just had a lick of paint, but little else has changed. You can still expect Guinness and Red Stripe on tap, Jamaican home-cooking (except on Mondays) and regular live jazz in the evenings. It's not the largest of pubs, but the fact that it manages to cram so much into a small space adds to the Effra's air of bonhomie. Even with a lick of paint, you could quibble that the interior of this one has seen better days, but there's still enough remnants in the decor that hint at this one's rather grander past - particularly the nice wall and floor tiles on one side of the pub. The Effra is never going to be the trendiest pub in SW2, but as a dependable local boozer in the area, it's hard to beat.

It would be difficult to expect more from a pub really. Usually filled to the rafters with a wide range of people from builders to art students. Regular bands play, which you can avoid if you wish by going around the corner.
