A grand old dame of a pub in the centre of Herne Hill and opposite Brockwell Park. In the front, we are large, light and airy around our central island bar. Out the back, we have our large decked garden, with some shade. To eat, we serve traditional pub food with a modern approach. We go for product quality over marketing for our draught and bottled beer collection and have a range of rotating ales. Dog friendly, date-night friendly, spot of food and then drinks for a celebration friendly, bring your folks for lunch when they are visiting friendly. You get the idea - we are quite friendly.

    Shockingly and unbelievably rude and dismissive staff; perhaps they don't need the custom. It's really dispiriting, when you simply want to go to a venue that you enjoy, that the wrong (useless) manager, or staff are on shift. I've tried to be measured in my response; the food was delicious, but some of the staff; vile. The vile individuals should be removed OR, better; managed by people who understand the transaction between venue and customer; they are there to provide a pleasant and enjoyable experience. There is little point to these reviews unless someone, who cares, will respond with an understanding of the importance of the customer experience ..... I will expect a response before I EVER step foot in The Florence again.

    Hello Anonymous, We are disappointed to hear that you had an unpleasant experience at The Florence. Would you be able to confirm that this took place on the day of your booking with us or is this complaint about another day perhaps? May we please ask you to contact us with the details of your booking and name in order for us to be able to investigate this further and make it up to you. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, The Florence team

    The food was definitely a cut above the usual (chicory and goats cheese salad). Friendly service, well maintained and pleasant surroundings. Would be nice to see the chefs be more adventurous. Maybe we are the only ones fed up with burgers and fish and chips!

    We have been going to The Florence for many years. The food was cooked to order last night and the server was very attentive, yet not imposing. We were in the restaurant and were given a choice of seating which was lovely.

    Visited with my husband and dog on Bank Holiday Monday, we both really fancied a Roast and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was on the menu. I had beef and husband had pork, it was delicious, very large portions, I couldn’t eat all mine but it didn’t go to waste! Very accommodating regarding our dog and he was allowed in the restaurant and able to sit on a chair… The staff were a bit grumpy, came across that they didn’t want to be there, but the service was still on point and we would definitely go again!
    The FlorenceResponded on April 5, 2024
    Hi MSC13, Thank you for your time in reviewing us, we're very glad that you enjoyed our roasts on Bank Holiday Monday, and we'll be sure to address the minor issues at hand. If there's anything else we can do to make your experience more enjoyable, do be sure to let us know. We hope to see you again sometime soon. All the best, Team Florence

    Ordered a margarita and the bar tender said she couldn’t be bothered to make it - her words not mine!
