So, my poor wife has been stuck in Hospital for over a week, and was in need of some sustenance and some family time and change of scenery. I booked and preordered lunch for four, as I had no idea how busy it would be....More

We were passing and decided to pop in for some nibbles and it did not disappoint! The staff were warm and welcoming, Coral in particular was fantastic, and the food was delicious. We'll be back soon!

Arrived early at the station to meet a friend so entered the nearby pub. I was very surprised upon entering and very pleased within moments of scanning the layout, decor, drink availability, and food menu. I will definitely be back!

This is a great pub over a old railway station. Great decor. The beer was good and the book was very good and promptly served. Well worth missing a train.

Just had lunch at this pub and made the mistake of ordering the Katsu Chicken burger.... the meat was substandard - mixture of thigh / ends of breast meat... not what you'd expect from a burger.More

Description
A Denmark Hill pub of mythical proportions.It's not often a pub can make the earth move. Abuzz with friendly banter and offbeat charm, you'll find The Phoenix benefits from more than just good vibrations from the throng of trains below. Like its mythical namesake, this quirky venue rose from the flames of the great Denmark Hill Station fire. Remnants of the building's original character blend effortlessly with the cosy furnishings, resulting in a look as sublimely eclectic as our speciality drinks list, and as timeless as the defunct yet impressive station clock hanging pride of place from our high-vaulted ceilings.
