Headed up by former Good As Gold chefs George Genn and Laurence Pengelly, Earl of Derby is a new boozer in New Cross to have on your radar. It’s all about top-notch food, local beers and organic wines here. The pub is split across two floors with a spacious garden and private dining room – expect dark oak interiors, moody lighting and quirky artwork. Guests can choose local beers on tap from Villages Brewery, Peckham’s Brick Brewery, Gipsy Hill Brewery and Brockley Brewery, as well as proper pies, chargrilled meats and weekly changing specials. We like the sound of the chicken and ham hock pie, and the Yorkshire Tea ice-cream with warm whisky sauce.
