Even I have noticed that the Elephant is a changing area, and I finally took my friend Colin Gs advice to visit this pub. Antic are certainly working their magic here, having made a formerly very unappealing pub feel welcoming.
Dark Star - Not Into Yoga4.50ExcellentA cloudy beer that is very fruity.
Big Smoke - Pineapple Saison4.00GoodFrom a keg of some kind and over-fizzy. Cloudy yellow in colour. Tart. Plenty of pineapple tastes.
Butcombe - Bitter (or Original)4.00Not Tried

About the Elephant & Castle

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Elephant & Castle, Central London, SE1 6BN.

A landmark and historic pub that lends its name not just to a roundabout and shopping centre but to a whole district. Unfortunately, today we have to make do with a 1960s rebuild part of a development that is not noted for its architecture. There is a spacious main bar area, a downstairs bar open at weekends and an outside drinking area for fans of street scenes and traffic fumes.

We have visited this pub once, seen 5 different beers and tried 2 of them.
