Pubs that try to please everybody can sometimes be found lacking, but credit to the Vauxhall Griffin - they pull it off pretty successfully. Tucked off a side street a few minutes walk from the unpleasantness of Vauxhall station, and once an underwhelming pub called 'Wyvil's', the new owners know what they're doing. Nicely decorated in a slightly shabby bohemian style, a central bar separates the comfortable main bar from the back area where you can find board games-a-plenty and a pool table. The latter space is also impressively filled with music related articles pasted over the walls, which also gives you a clue that the jukebox is above average (if slightly erring on the 'Guilty Pleasures' side of things). A lone pump of London Pride for the ale fans (along with bottles from the fridge), though you may want to give their self-proclaimed 'Best Bloody Mary in London' a try. Very reasonably priced grub and with a plethora of additional attractions too: a lively pub quiz on Tuesday nights, indie themed DJ nights on alternate Fridays, karaoke with a live band on a Saturday and Cinema nights upstairs on Sundays. Previous visits have found this place busy with a pre-clubbing crowd and it's worth noting the main bar area fills up pretty quickly. Nevertheless, at other less frenetic times the Griffin is arguably the best pub in Vauxhall.
